A decrease in temperatures signals the beginning of both autumn weather and tall fescue season. For fall 2016, Super-Sod released a YouTube video detailing the process of aerating and overseeding a tall fescue lawn to kick off cool season grass planting.

Ley Pickens of Orangeburg, South Carolina, stars in the video titled “Tall Fescue Overseeding.” Pickens instructs lawn owners on the proper methods for repairing tall fescue lawns from summer thinning and preparing tall fescue for cooler weather.

The video, filmed at a home north of Atlanta, Georgia, details the methods for ensuring a thriving tall fescue lawn. As a cool season grass, tall fescue thrives from fall through spring.

Aerating, overseeding and topdressing a lawn are crucial to a healthy tall fescue lawn. Pickens explains the process of conducting a soil test, preparing the lawn, aerating, applying nutrients and planting the tall fescue seed.

Produced with the do-it-yourself lawn enthusiast in mind, Super-Sod’s video includes tips for the beginner to learn best practices for his or her lawn.

Super-Sod offers products in the video for sale or rent. Blue-tag certified Elite Tall Fescue seed blend is selected for its dark green color, disease resistance and pest resistance. Elite tall fescue is also available as sod. Super-Sod lime and fertilizer mixes are available in stores, along with compost spreaders for rent.

Soil3, the OMRI-listed humus compost delivered in a signature BigYellowBag, is created at Super-Sod’s farm in Fort Valley, Georgia. Wheat straw, manure from local dairies, and grass clippings from the farm are the only ingredients featured in the compost. Soil3 is used to add nutrition, improve moisture retention, and build better soil structure in native clay soil.
