ENH14: Overseeding Florida Lawns for Winter Color

Figure 1. Overseeding provides green winter turf cover. Overseeding is primarily used on golf courses, athletic fields, and high-profile landscape areas, but the principles can be applied by homeowners wishing to have year-round green lawns. It is important, however, to remember that this practice involves year-round lawn maintenance, including fertilization, irrigation, and mowing. Be sure to be ready for increased maintenance.
