If you live in a warmer climate, you know what happens to your lawn during the winter…the dreaded amber, brown color of dormancy.
If you’d like to make your lawn a little more vibrant during the winter, you can always overseed it in the fall with a cooler season grass. You’ll want to overseed with an annual grass, which has a quick rate of germination, or a perennial rye grass, which is more tolerant of extreme cold and heat.
Time the overseed anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks before that first nasty frost. And keep in mind, Bermuda does a better job with overseeding than Zoysia, St. Augustine or Centipede.
There’s no need to have a brown lawn during the winter. Consider overseeding if you’d like to add a little green to your lawn during those dreary winter months!
