To Overseed Or Not To Overseed, That Is The Question!
What is “overseeding”?
Overseeding…A turf grass management practice in the southern part of the United States which occurs during the fall season, when the bermudagrass used for greens, tee boxes, fairways and roughs begins to go dormant and turns a shade of yellow/gold/brown during the cooler weather. These areas are overseeded with cold temperature tolerant ryegrass each year. This is typically done to allow the courses to stay aesthetically green for winter play.
