Is your once lush and vibrant lawn showing signs of wear and tear? Has it lost its lushness and become patchy or thin? If so, our lawn overseeding service might be the rejuvenating solution you need. This comprehensive guide delves into the world of lawn overseeding—an essential service that can revive your lawn, enhancing its beauty, resilience, and health.


The process of overseeding is influenced by the type of grass being seeded and the climate.

The best time for overseeding cool-season grasses is between late summer and early fall. In late spring, before the lawn begins its growth period, it is best to overseed warm-season grasses. In order for the seed to germinate, the soil temperature must be above 55 degrees Fahrenheit (or around 12 degrees Celsius).

Regardless of the type of grass, there are certain general rules that must be followed when overseeding.

It is important to mow your lawn before planting so that the seeds sink into the ground, instead of sitting on the lawn. We also recommend raking the soil to remove the stubble and enable the seeds to reach the soil with ease.

Your lawn will be overseeded with high-quality products by your Excel Lawns & Landscape professional.

The recent ice storm had the sidewalks and driveway a sheet of ice. They came out twice to treat the areas. I was impressed with not only the work they performed but also that I did not have to call them to remind them. Rarely do I encounter from others the great service Excel provided. I am thrilled I hired them.

The crew at Excel worked on our front porch retaining wall. They did excellent work, were courteous, prompt in getting the job done, and even came out a few months later just to double-check the wall during cold weather. Thanks for all you did. I will definitely recommend your services.

I called and they actually answered the phone and it didn’t go to voicemail. They came to see the job and gave me a fair quote and a date when they would be able to do it. The job was completed on time and I’m very happy with the work of the team.
