Ahhhh. The perfect lawn.
It's what some of us strive for: a lush, green carpet of bluegrass, rye, and fescue that makes you want to venture barefoot. Or perhaps your definition of the perfect lawn is one that contains dandelions and clover with hovering pollinators. Which ever ideal you relate to, most likely we all would agree that crabgrass is an unwanted weed in the lawn.
There are effective ways to route out this annual monocot which seeds heavily if untreated, but not many are organic solutions. Up for a new method to try? Coming from the Cornell Cooperative Extension is an article explaining this sustainable technique called repetitive overseeding. For the last 15 years they have been demonstrating it's benefits on lawns in New York, and it works!
Read the report here.
If you are inclined to give it a try, let us know.
We'll be happy to order perennial ryegrass or tall fescue seed needed for this project.
