Planning for Grass Seeding Success
In Charlotte, just about everything grows like a weed—except grass. Cultivating fresh, healthy grass requires the insight of an expert lawn seeding company that can take both a defensive and offensive approach. Expert planning starts with identifying the root problem with your old turf while planting your new, vibrant lawn.
Whether as part of a customer’s lawn maintenance package or as a new project, our experts approach each grass seeding by considering the old lawn. If your turf has lost its density, it could result from improper drainage, poor air circulation, or substandard soil condition. We want to identify and treat those problems first so they won’t affect your new grass. Then we plant the grass seeds directly into the existing turf, ensuring your lawn doesn’t look worse before it looks better.
Top 3 Things to Know About Lawn Seeding in Charlotte
You Need to Fix the Problem Before You Seed
When grass thins or browns, it doesn’t happen spontaneously—there’s a reason behind the change in your turf. If you don’t identify and alleviate the problem before you seed, you’re dooming your new grass to the same fate. Problems can include poor soil quality, soil compaction, not enough air circulation, or too little water.
Your Old Turf May Be Outdated
Older lawns were probably planted with types of turfgrass that were common at that time, but our turf options (and our understanding of them) have come a long way. Those older turfs are usually more prone to insects and diseases, whereas newer turfs have evolved to better withstand those headaches.
Seeding Your Lawn Will Save You Money
Investing in lawn seeding services is a smart financial decision because it pays for itself. Over the seasons, you’ll spend significantly less money on fertilizer, watering, and pesticides with a lawn that’s being maintained from the root up with seeding.

Grass Seeding Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between overseeding and reseeding?
Overseeding is the process of spreading seed over the entirety of your lawn, which is done to address a thinning lawn and to ensure it looks full and healthy. Reseeding addresses specific areas of your lawn, usually dead spots in the grass.
What kind of grass seed should I choose for my lawn?
There are many varieties of grass to choose from (12,000!), but some of the more popular types include Bermuda, which grows fast in warm climates, and Kentucky Bluegrass, which fares better in cooler climates. But the best grass for your lawn depends on the amount of shade, sun, and water it will receive, and that might vary from one area of your yard to the next. That’s why it’s best to consult a professional when overseeding.
How often should I overseed my lawn?
We recommend aerating and overseeding your lawn at least every three to four years. However, if you can seed your lawn annually, you’ll have lush, green grass that rivals a golf course
How do I care for my lawn after seeding?
Until the grass germinates, you should give it a light watering every day. Once it sprouts (usually about 10–14 days later), you should water it less frequently but with more water when you do so to ensure the soil is soaked. Once the grass is established, you should continue to water with frequency based on the kind of grass you planted.
