Whatcom Lawns offers over seeding solutions for your lawn.  While at times lawn replacement is the preferred option, many times an existing lawn can be over seeded and rejuvenated to look amazing once again!  We highly recommend consistent watering and healthy lawn applications after over seeding to keep it looking great.

Over seeding usually involves the following steps:

  • Bagger mow the lawn as low as possible
    • Trim and edge the lawn
  • Thatch the lawn
  • Clean up, haul away and dispose of the thatch
  • Thatch the lawn again in a different direction
  • Clean up, haul away and dispose of the thatch
  • Bagger mow the lawn to remove any left-over debris
  • Apply moss control to the lawn
  • Double aerate the lawn to expose extra soil for the slicer seeder
  • Apply starter fertilizer
  • Slicer seed the lawn in two directions
    • This will bury the seed in the soil
  • Clean up, haul away and dispose of the moss and thatch resulting from the slicer seeding

Depending on the situation, we may not need to thatch.
