High-Quality Aeration and Overseeding for Your Tall Fescue Lawn
Eastern Turf Maintenance offers fescue overseeding to homeowners in the Triangle area.
North Carolina homeowners with cool-season turfgrass, like tall Fescue, can rely on Eastern Turf Maintenance for annual aeration and overseeding. Each fall, fescue lawns require overseeding to replenish and rejuvenate lawn health. The hot summers we experience in the Carolinas can take a toll on cool-season grasses which is why aeration and seeding are so important to maintain a lush, healthy Fescue lawn.

What is Overseeding?
Lawn overseeding is a process of spreading grass seed over already existing turf to help promote new growth and fill in thinning areas in a fescue lawn.
Generally, overseeding is best for larger areas where the turf is thin, but not completely bare. Smaller areas that are thin or infested with weeds can be spot seeded.
Benefits of overseeding your lawn include filling in bare spots or areas of turf damaged by summer stress with new grass, thickening and increasing its density, improving the lawn’s overall appearance, and enhancing its ability to fight insects and disease.
Each year, Eastern Turf Maintenance hand-selects a seed blend of the highest quality. We partner directly with growers to provide a high-quality seed blend to our customers in the Triangle area. We time our overseeding services each fall as soils reach ideal cooler temperatures for successful germination.
Our Core Aeration and Overseeding Process
Aeration and overseeding are two of the most important services you can offer your cool-season fescue lawn.
Aeration and overseeding are best combined as one lawn care service. You will not see the benefits of aeration on cool-season grass alone, without adding the grass seed. A thick, weed-free lawn starts with aeration and overseeding every fall.
Before applying your new grass seed, we will perform core aeration to help alleviate soil compaction, promote stronger, deeper root systems, and create new space in the soil for the new grass seed to germinate. Following your overseeding, you’ll receive professional watering guidelines and mowing recommendations to ensure you see the best results with your fescue grass.
With the popularity of Fescue lawns in and around Raleigh, and throughout the Triangle area of North Carolina, our aeration and overseeding services are in high demand. Pricing for lawn overseeding depends on the size and square feet of your property. To secure our services for your lawn call 919-571-9990 or get a free quote today.
Benefits of Aeration for Your Lawn
Aerating your lawn allows water, air, and fertilizer to penetrate all the way down to the root zone. This in turn supports root growth, by allowing the roots to grow deeper, creating a more healthy and thicker lawn.
Reduces the chances of having thatch buildup. Thatch makes it harder for your lawn to absorb water and nutrients. It also makes it more susceptible to lawn diseases.
Reduces soil compaction, creating more channels for water, air, and nutrients to travel through. Just like humans, grass plants need water, oxygen, and food to thrive.
Creates the optimal environment for new growth in your fescue lawn. The new seed has the opportunity to embed in the soil, absorbing nutrients so that it can sprout lush, green grass.
