How to Treat Thin Grass Suffering from Shade Problems

Is your home’s overly shaded lawn taking a toll on your grass? Sometimes this shade can lead to thin grass. Whether there is a better type of grass seed that should be used or an entirely different approach, the experts at Heritage Lawns & Irrigation have the solution for you.

Grass Seeding May be the Best Solution

Sometimes we will adjust cultural practices to help the grass perform better and be healthier. If this is not an option, our experts look at seeding. Why would we do this? Seeding is a tool we can use to thicken bare or thin areas. Grasses like tall fescue don’t spread well and need seeding to help damaged areas recover. The best time of year to seed is from September 1 to October 15.

Sometimes it is better to start all over. In cases where we have undesirable grasses, it is better to kill off all of the bad growth and start over with the best seed you can get. It is amazing how many little problems go away when you have a good foundation or call us at (913) 451-4664 to discuss your situation.
