|Scooped by Richard Spencer|
Richard Spencer's insight:
As Spring draws for ever closer.
This question no matter where you are is on your lips.
"When is the best time to reseed your lawn?"
In My opinion in the late fall is the best time to get maximum germination.
Here is why
(1) There is less competition with the weeds and birds that would other wise feasting on the seeds - thus cutting down your cost
(2) This gives the seeds more of chance to set up root system as they is less competition producing a healthy sward
(3) The ground should be warm enough to produce germination
As for Aeration I agree with this article here but before you rush out and hire a aerator read this article here first https://spencerrichard01.wordpress.com/2015/03/19/a-for-aeration/
You should also scarify your lawn too before overseeding that why is it important also to over seed in the autumn over wise the moss will just take over and you are left with a green but spongy lawn.
If you missed out on the Autumn regime the best time is in the April when the ground is warm and wet and rain predicted other wise you have to water water . In the parts of the world like America with their water restrictions this isn't practical and some times illegal
