What is Overseeding?
This is a process of using a “Slice/ Cut Seeder” machine that slices 1″ deep groves in soil and dethatches the old expired grass along with dropping seed into the cut grooves. We remove all of the thatch after seeding. This process is used with lawns that are at about 50% and above to thicken up and reestablish. Best times to administer slice seeding is early spring and early fall, just like hydroseeding.
Cost of Overseeding
12 to 15 cents per square ft. with a minimum of 5,000 sq ft. for an application. As square footage increases, the price is adjusted accordingly with larger areas.
Sodding is available at a cost of 2.00 to 2.50 per sq. ft including all prep work. Minimum of 500 sq ft.
