Hey Weybridge… Right now is a great time to re-seed your lawn

When it comes to landscaping in Weybridge, there’s a common question we get asked…

Q: Who is responsible for over seeding (or re-seeding) our lawns in Weybridge?
A: Each homeowner is responsible for periodic re-seeding or over seeding of their own lawn.

Yes, homeowners — not BrightView — are responsible for periodic re-seeding or over seeding to keep lawns healthy and looking good, similar to how homeowners are responsible for watering lawns in dry conditions.

What is over seeding?

In the simplest terms, over seeding is adding grass seed to your existing lawn without turning the soil. This adds more color to your lawn, helps create thicker grass, and introduces enhanced varieties of grass to your lawn.

When is the best time to over seed or re-seed?

Early fall is the very best time to re-seed. Soil temperatures are still warm, which is necessary for optimum seed germination, and cooler air temperatures are better for grass growth. There will also be fewer weeds for the grass to compete with this time of year.

How long does grass live?

Grass doesn’t live forever! The lifespan of regular household lawn grasses is around 7-10 years, whereas a single blade of grass lives for 40 to 50 days. Although different factors affect the lifespan of grasses, grass seeds usually live for 3 to 5 years. So re-seeding and over seeding keeps your lawn refreshed.
