Now is a good time to overseed

Over the next week we'll be getting a lot of rain in most parts of the northeast and if you haven't already overseeded your lawn, now is a good time to do so.

All the rain we're supposed to be getting will help keep the seed moist without the need to water every day, which should help keep your watering times down.

Keep an eye out and make sure the weather doesn't change, which it usually does, and water your lawn as necessary. It is important to keep the seeds and soil moist to get the highest germination rate.

It's best if you have a programmable sprinkler system. You don't need to rip up your yard to install one, there are many hose based options you can use to keep your lawn watered. For some ideas, review my post on automatic sprinkler systems for small yards.

If you haven't already done so, there is still some time to aerate your lawn before you overseed. Aeration helps improve the germination rate.
