The Q&A Archives: Aerating And Overseeding

Question: When should you aerate and overseed a Fescue lawn?

Answer: Spring and autumn are both good times to aerate and overseed lawns. You can generally count on natural rainfall and cool temperatures during these times, which will encourage seed germination and lush, thick growth. If you're pulling plugs with a power aerator, just leave the plugs on the lawn and rainfall will help dissolve them. By next spring you'll have a healthy lawn full of thick, new grass.
