Overseeding Or Reseeding Turf In Clay Soil

Question From: D. Klick - COLORADO
Q: Hi. Considering the overseeding process this coming fall, and I'm wondering if our goofy, clay-rich soil here in Denver presents any additional problems that I need to be aware of, or do I just follow the great instructions that I've just read on your website? Thanks.


I too grow turf in clay soil and follow Jeff Ball's recommendations. Core aeration before seeding is very helpful. Rake out the cores so they settle into the turf. I would do this a couple of weeks prior to seeding. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
