When should I overseed my lawn in Nova Scotia?
Likewise, when should I fertilize my lawn in Nova Scotia?
Replace nutrients by leaving grass clippings on the lawn, fertilizing with compost or other organic soil additives. Fertilize in April and May or in September, when the lawn is actively growing.
how do I seed my lawn in the fall? Mow grass closely, and loosen the top 6 mm (1/4 inch) of soil in bare or thin areas. Add 6 mm (1/4 inch) of weed free lawn soil to the area. Distribute the seed evenly. For best results, use a hand-held or a rotary spreader.
Hereof, when should I overseed and fertilize my lawn?
Fertilize every eight weeks for a thick, green lawn. As a rule of thumb, fertilize in early spring, and over mid-May, July and September. Lawns require about one inch of water per week to encourage roots to grow. You may not need to water if there has been rain.
Is it OK to overseed in the spring?
Fall is the best time to introduce new seed into an existing lawn of cool-season grasses. But, depending on your grass type, overseeding in spring can yield good results, too, if it's done early enough in the spring to give seedlings enough time to mature before the onset of the summer heat.
