Hey folks, as I've mentioned in my other posts, I'm still a newbie to this whole lawn care thing. I've decided to take a stab at overseeding this year; I wanted to do it last fall but it just didn't work out, though I did put down some winter fertilizer. So I've been doing some reading up on overseeding, and one thing I'm noticing is how many websites, etc. emphasize on doing it in the fall. Some just say it works better in the fall, while others make it sound like doing it in the spring is a waste of time.
Does the time of year really make that much of a difference? I am really excited about doing it as soon as possible (though first I have to wait for the eight feet of snow out there to melt.) Part of it is because while my lawn is in relatively good shape, it needs the help that a good overseeding would bring, and I don't want to wait another year and a half to see the result. (i.e. if I wait until this fall, I won't see the results until next year.)
Besides, one thing I've learned since I started putzing with this stuff is that the "experts" don't always have it right.
