Reseeding Your Lawn Can Bring More Value to Your Home

Oct 30, 2007
If you are interested in making sure that your lawn is in the best possible condition, you may want to consider reseeding problem patches in your yard. This particularly is the case when it comes to preparing your house for sale. The fact is that by making sure your lawn is in the best possible shape, you will add a significant amount of curb appeal to your home. You will make your home more attractive to a potential buyer.

The reality is that in advance of reseeding your lawn, there are some steps that you do need to take to prepare your lawn for the reseeding process itself. By following these steps in preparation of law reseeding, you will be in the best possible position to ensure that your lawn reseeding is of the greatest effect.

The first step that you need to take in advance of lawn reseeding is remove all debris, weeds and dead grass from the area or areas that you will be reseeding. It is very important that you do thoroughly remove all of this trash from the areas in which you will be doing reseeding.

The second step that you will want to take when it comes to reseeding patches in your lawn is to aerate the soil in those spots at which you will be doing the reseeding. You want to make sure that water and nutrients easily are accessible to the grass seed and the roots as the seed begins to germinate.

The third step involved in the reseeding preparation process is adding compost to the soil if the soil itself is not in particularly good condition. It is very important that the soil be in the best possible condition to support the growth of the new grass that will result from your reseeding efforts.

The fourth step that you necessarily must take when it comes to reseeding your lawn is to make certain that you undertake the reseeding process itself at an appropriate time. For example, you do not want to reseed when the sun is at its harshest. In addition, if you do live in an area in which a freeze will occur, you will want to reseed the lawn at least a month before the first freeze is expected in your area. The timing of your reseeding efforts really is important and cannot be underestimated.

By making certain that you closely follow these recommendations, you will be in the best possible position to enjoy great success when it comes to reseeding your lawn. You will be able to improve the look and health of your lawn. And, by doing so, you actually will be improving the value of your house. (Again, this is a crucial step if you do intend to put the house on the market for sale any time soon.)
