Overseeding Grass, Preparation and Planting

Overseeding Guys in Utah understands all too well that Overseeding your cool-season grass too soon while in the fall can bring about thin, spotty establishment. Actively growing Bermuda grass will out-compete the ryegrass, however if planted too late, growth is delayed by colder temperatures producing poor establishment. The best time to overseed your lawn will be between October 1st and November 15. During this time Bermuda grass growth shall be slowed down by cooler temperatures but adequately warm to encourage good grass seed germination of your ryegrass.

After seeds are planted we at Overseeding Guys in Utah feels they need to stay moist to germinate properly. Top dressing seeds with finely ground bark mulch, manure compost, or sand should help hold the moisture in. Do not use peat moss as it's difficult to keep wet and might blow away.

Overseeding Grass and Watering

After planting grass seed, light and frequent watering (up to 3 times daily) is important while in the first seven to ten days, till the seedlings have established their roots down inside the moist soil.

Overseeding Guys tip: Germinating seeds need lots of oxygen so maintain your grass moist but don't overwater which will cause flooding.

Watering intervals should then be gradually moved to about once a week. During the coldest times of the season it's possible you'll just need to water once every 2 weeks. Two weeks after seedling emergence, it's a good idea to put on a grass fertilizer loaded with phosphorous, which will promote good root development. There are many starter fertilizers to choose from but an example can be ammonium phosphate (16-20-0), which you would apply at about 5 pounds per 1,000 square feet.

Overseeding Grass and Mowing in Utah

Annual and perennial ryegrass ought to be first mowed once they reach heights between 2.75 and 3 inches. If utilizing a rotary mower, set the blade height between 2.25 and 2.75 inches. If seeking to achieve a prime quality turf appearance and using a reel-type mower, mow your lawn between 1 and 1.5 inches when grass is one-third taller than the regular mowing height.

Overseeding Grass and Spring Transition

Bermuda and most warm-season grasses will grow back when night temperatures get to the upper 60s. To encourage the Bermuda grass's come-back, lower the mowing height to an inch or less after nights start warming up. This will affectively scalp the cool-season grass, reducing shading and warms up the bermuda grass beneath.
