Overseed for a Healthy, Lush Lawn
Overseeding creates a thick, healthy lawn, which is the best defense against weeds.
Make small changes to maintain a beautiful garden with less pollution and waste.
Lawns require more nitrogen fertilizer than other garden plants to stay green and healthy. You can provide about one third of the nitrogen your lawn needs simply by leaving grass clippings on the lawn after mowing - just be sure to de-thatch if necessary so your lawn can absorb and break down clippings, which returns nutrients to the soil. To provide the remaining nitrogen, use an organic fertilizer, which feeds a slow, steady supply of nutrients to grass plants.
TIP: Always apply lawn fertilizer according to the directions on the package, and sweep up any fertilizer that lands on sidewalks and driveways to prevent it from contaminating local water supplies. For more useful tips, read How to Fertilize.
