How to Aerate and Seed Your Lawn

September 26th, 2010 · No Comments

Has the long hot summer taken a toll on your yard. Has the fescue died and been replaced with clover, chickweed, crabgrass and bald spots? Do you want to get that fine manicured fescue lawn look back? If so then this video is for you. In this video Charlotte home inspector Preston Sandlin expains the steps to aerate and seed your lawn.

1. Mow the lawn as low as you can.

2. Rake the thatch

3. Spray round up on heavily weeded areas and let dry.

4. Aerate the lawn. Aerate areas where you srayed the round up extra heavy.

5. Seed the lawn with spreader.

6. Fertilize the lawn with starter fertilizer.

7. Lime your yard with spreader.

8. Water.

Follow these steps to aerating and seeding your yard and I promise you will have a lush beautiful green fescue lawn like I have here in Charlotte NC. The Fall is the best time to aerate an seed your lawn as fescue loves temperatures between 60 and 80 degrees. If you aerate and seed in the Fall your lawn has the rest of the Fall and the Spring to mature for next Summer. Fescue goes dormant in the Winter. Fescue just has a hard time when it is 90 and above becausse it is a cool season grass. I hope this video helps you to have a beautiful manicured lawn.
