The Q&A Archives: How do I thicken up my lawn?

Questioner's Location: Glenview, Il

Question: Last spring I had sod laid. Grass was green, but not thick. How do I thicken up my lawn?

Answer: You can overseed the sod this spring to help it thicken up, or you can simply wait for the sod to spread on it's own. Be sure to feed your lawn on a regular basis (April, June, Sept. and late Nov.) and water deeply this growing season. It will thicken up in about 3 weeks if you overseed now. Enjoy your garden!
