It’s not too early to start thinking about planting and lawn care for the next season. For the Kansas City area, it is very common for cool-season lawns to look a little unkempt after a stressful hot summer. If your lawn has gone through disease, excessive heat, neglect, drought or poor soil conditions the cool season is the perfect time for starting your overseeding. Many people say that the Kansas City area cool-season grasses should be cared for as if they are hardy annuals or delicate perennials. That is basically just saying that in order to keep your lawn looking beautiful it will more than likely need at least one overseeding each year.
The best time to overseed turfgrasses in the Kansas City area is usually September because Mother Nature is establishing cool-season grasses. So you’ll get the best results with the least amount of work. But don’t start seeding too late. That will bring in weeds like henbit and chickweed, a problem that takes more time and energy to deal with.
