The decision to seed or replace your lawn depends on the condition of your existing lawn and your goals for your outdoor space. Here are some factors to consider:
- Condition of the existing lawn: If your lawn is mostly healthy but has some bare spots or thin areas, seeding may be a good option. However, if your lawn is in poor condition, with extensive damage from pests, disease, or drought, it may be better to replace it.
- Cost: Seeding is typically less expensive than replacing a lawn. If cost is a concern, seeding may be the better option. For an estimate on a full replacement of your lawn, you can request an estimate from our sister company Landscape IQ.
- Time: Seeding takes time and patience. It can take several months for new grass to become established, and during this time, you will need to water and care for the new grass regularly. If you need a quick fix, replacing the lawn may be a better option.
- Goals: Consider what you want from your lawn. If you want a uniform, lush lawn, replacing it may be the better option. If you're happy with your lawn's general appearance but just want to fill in some bare spots, seeding may be the better option.
If your lawn is in decent condition but needs some improvement, seeding may be a good choice. However, if your lawn is in poor condition or you want a complete overhaul, replacing the lawn may be the better option. Consider your goals, time, and budget when making your decision.
