If your lawn took a hard hit from this dry summer as most have, this is the right time for over-seeding. Overseeding should be done in late summer or early fall. There are many reasons for this. With fall germination, the young grasses will have two or three months to become better established before temperatures drop too low and growth stops. Next spring, these young grasses will have another few months to develop deeper roots before the summer heat sets in.
