At first, lawn overseeding sounds like something that could potentially hurt your lawn. But don’t worry, overseeding your lawn is nothing to be feared. In fact, it can boost your soil health and help it to grow greener and more durable turf.
Simply put, overseeding is a vital part of lawn maintenance that involves applying grass seed on a lawn that already has a fair amount of turf. It’s also a common solution to patchy grass, thinning lawns, and damaged lawns.

Benefits of Lawn Overseeding
Finishing Touches Landscaping & Maintenance offers lawn overseeding services which is one of the best grass growth options for a beautiful and resilient lawn that you can be proud of. By overseeding your lawn, we can grow a greener, sustainable lawn that lasts.
There are heaps of benefits to lawn overseeding. From the beginning of grass growth on a bare lawn to maintaining a full property, overseeding may just be the grass growth hack you’ve been looking for.
Curing Patchy or Damaged Areas of Grass
Shady spots, hills, and water tables can hinder grass growth. If your property has “bald spots” or patchy areas, overseeding may just be the miracle that brings the grass back up to snuff. With proper preparation and care, you can see prominent grass growth in spots that couldn’t grow much or anything before.
Lawn overseeding is also a blessing to homeowners with a property that has been damaged by soil erosion, pests, or other grass growth. It undoes the damage and can even act as a form of protection to prevent it from happening again.
Finishing Touches can provide lawn overseeding with the right kinds of grass seed for your property’s soil. Even if your property has no grass at all, we know what grows the best in our soil and the climate here in Washington State.
The most common types of grass found in Washington State are:
- Fine Fescue
- Kentucky Bluegrass
- Perennial Ryegrass
Maintaining Lawn Aesthetics
Lawn overseeding doesn’t just help you with patchy areas on your property, but it also helps to maintain a healthy lawn that you might not think would need any help. Even normal lawns can benefit from overseeding.
Note that when overseeding, you will also have to water and fertilize more often. It may be a good idea to invest in a sprinkler system to keep the grass green and healthy. Our lawn maintenance program can help you with all of that!
By spreading grass seed over existing turf, you can increase the green color and the soft texture of the grass. You may just want to walk barefoot over the lush lawn that Finishing Touches can give you!
Improving Soil Health
Statistically, over 80% of homeowners do not know what kind of soil they have, let alone how healthy it is. Your soil can be deteriorated by several factors, like overworking, heavy rains and flooding, and pests.
Not only can overseeding fix deteriorated soil, but it can also prevent soil erosion from ever happening in the first place.
Your property’s soil health is the biggest factor in how the grass will grow, so if your lawn’s in trouble, you’re going to want to find a team like Finishing Touches to figure out what your soil truly needs to grow healthy grass.
We look forward to the opportunity to help you with your upcoming project in these local areas:

Frequently Asked Questions
When Is The Best Time For Lawn Overseeding?
The mild climate that we experience in the Pacific Northwest may lead you to believe that any time during the year would be optimal, with the obvious exception being winter. However, you may be surprised to learn that Fall is the best time to overseed.
In Washington State, we have a lot of “cool-season” grasses that grow best when the weather is cooler. So during fall clean-up, it’s a great idea to have your lawn overseeded as an extra boost for the upcoming spring.
Does Overseeding Need More Maintenance Than Normal Methods?
Most of the time, homeowners will plant grass seed, water it once or twice, and then wait for their brown ground to start turning green. This will only result in patchy, thin grass that can be easily damaged.
Like planting a garden, creating the perfect lawn takes time to plan and prepare. Lawn overseeding will be much more effective if the ground is aerated first and maintained with fertilizer and regular watering.
