Budget Package: Aeration & Overseeding

Premium Package: Aeration & Overseeding Starter Fertilizer ( Seedlings that are germinating need phosphorus and potassium to quickly sprout up while establishing healthy strong deep root growth. )

Diamond Package:Aeration & Overseeding Starter Fertilizer Lime Soil Amendment

Starter Fertilizer ( Seedlings that are germinating need phosphorus and potassium to quickly sprout up while establishing healthy strong deep root growth. )

Lime Soil Amendment ( As lime dissolves in soil, calcium rises to the surface of soil particles, replacing the acidic component of the soil. The acidic components, including hydrogen and potassium, react with the carbonate, leaving behind neutralized clay, carbon dioxide and water. As a result, you have a neutralized soil pH balance that is able to foster proper plant growth. )

Your Aeration & Overseeding Questions Answered...

How often should I water? -It is important to water the seeds in immediately. -The ground should be damp, but not soaking wet. -There should not be so much water that there is runoff.

First: Keep the lawn surface moist for the first 3 weeks (light daily, watering). Then: For the next 3 weeks, water more thoroughly but less often (2 to 3 times per week). Timing: Try to avoid watering in the evening, unless your work schedule makes it necessary.

How long will it take to see results? -On average, you will see grass seed begin to germinate -within 14-21 days, IF YOU WATER. -If seeding in late Summer or early Fall, you will be able to see nice germination before the end of the Fall season. -If seeding in late Fall, seedlings will over-winter and reach maturity next Spring.

When can I mow? -It is okay to mow weekly AFTER the seed has been thoroughly watered in. Please do not catch your grass clippings, only mulch them. If you catch your grass clippings, you may vacuum up the some grass seed!

What do I do with leaves? -DO NOT RAKE THE LEAVES! Seedlings are delicate and have shallow roots. -The best way to remove leaves is to blow or mulch them up with the lawn mower.

What about fertilization and weed control? -Lopez will fertilize the seed with a specially formulated product that encourages new seedling growth if requested. For continued weed control, we do recommend treatment in spot areas rather than full area treatments until the seed is established.

What if a storm comes right after I seed? -In most instances, the water is great for the seed! It will help to wash the seeds into the aeration holes.
