Lawn seeding for a brand new lawn
Planting a brand new lawn can be a big job, but Yard Smart is here to help. It’s important to remember that not all grass seeds are created equal. Our first step is to help you select the right seed type based on your yard’s soil, the climate and your landscape goals. Next, we’ll lay down the seed and properly fertilize the soil according to best practices. Before we leave, we’ll give you detailed instructions on how to care for the new grass seeds and properly attend to their needs. This will include details about when to water your soon-to-be-grass, when to let pets or kids on the area, how to best avoid loss of seeds to wildlife and when to eventually mow.
Spot seeding to fix specific damaged areas
Lawns can easily be damaged by pests, disease, dog urine or general wear and tear. One thing is for sure: patchy lawns are an eyesore. Fortunately, Yard Smart offers quick and easy ‘bald spot repair’, or spot seeding, to fix specific damaged areas. When you hire us, our first step is to investigate what the underlying issue might be to best avoid future bald spots. For example, if your soil is compacted from too much foot traffic, we may recommend lawn aeration. Or, if your lawn has multiple bald patches and is thin and weak, we may recommend overseeding the entire lawn. The best time to repair a damaged lawn is fall (followed by spring), as there is less competition from weeds and the soil temperatures are still warm. We’d be happy to chat with you and help diagnose the cause of your lawn’s bald spots and our suggestion for the best remedy.
Lawn overseeding to keep your yard looking its best
Looking for the best lawn on the block? Overseeding is not just great for filling in bald or brown spots, but when applied to the entire yard it improves the density of your existing lawn. And if your lawn is thick and strong, it stops opportunities for pesky weeds to grow. We typically recommend overseeding in either fall (preferred) or spring as soil temperatures are optimal, there is less competition from weeds and there is typically less foot traffic. Overseeding is a quick, inexpensive way to help bring your yard back to a lush, green paradise without needing to tear everything out and start over. Depending on your landscaping goals, we’ll also often recommend overseeding in tandem with some of our other services, like lawn aeration.

Everything about lawn seeding
How much does lawn seeding cost?
The cost of our lawn seeding services depends on a number of factors, including the size of your lawn and the complexity of the project. For example, some of our customers are looking to plant a brand new lawn, while others are only looking to fix a few bald patches or get routine annual overseeding.
How often should I be overseeding my lawn?
This depends on your landscaping goals and what you’re hoping to achieve. Typically we recommend overseeding each year, as your grass will grow old and have trouble maintaining growth. Introducing new grass seeds every year ensures your lawn looks fresh and new. Plus, these new grass types may have better resistance to disease, drought and pests that could be plaguing your older lawn.
When is the best time of year to overseed my lawn?
We recommend overseeding your lawn in the fall, as it’s the best time to introduce new grass seed into an existing lawn of cool-season grasses. However, spring overseeding can also produce good results, too, if it’s done early enough in the season to give seedlings time to mature before the intense summer heat.
How can I bring back my patchy, brown and sad-looking lawn?
