Washington D.C. Lawn Care Tips From The Pros
Is your Washington D.C. lawn looking thin and brown? Well Focas Landscaping a DC lawn care company can help you get back to the thick, lush, green lawn you've always wanted and all you need to do is reseed. If you put down a layer of seed over your lawn in the spring or fall all the thin areas start growing grass and your DC lawn starts to look terrific again.
Over time grass does get old and needs to be replaced. Worn-out DC lawns invite weeds. Over seeding is a fast, inexpensive way to help bring your Washington D.C. lawn back to its lush - green, healthy self without tearing everything out and starting over. It's also a great way to introduce a new type of grass.
In the North like Washington D.C., the best time to over seed your lawn is in the fall. The soil is still warm but the air is cooler. There are fewer weeds for new grass to compete against. Since your trees are starting to shed their leaves, there's plenty of sunlight. Also, diseases that attack seedlings are less active. If you can't seed in the fall, your next best time is the spring. If you live in the south the best time to over seed is summer since warm-season grasses need warmer soil temperatures to germinate.
