What do lawn seeding services include?

Lawn seeding isn’t exactly one of the easiest household tasks out there. It requires meticulous attention to detail and isn’t something you can achieve in a few short hours. Here, we listed down the basic steps for a lawn seeding service if you’re still on the fence about hiring a Tasker for the job:

Preparing the soil 

It’s ideal to have your lawn’s soil tested to ensure it’s in the right condition for seeding. The results will show if your soil needs any nutrients or other amendments to improve it. Once your soil has been tested and is proven to be healthy, your Tasker can then proceed with clearing the soil of rocks, roots, sticks, and anything that may interfere with seed growth. The Tasker may also smoothen the surface with a rake to make sure the ground is level.  

Spreading the grass seed and fertilizing 

If it’s a brand-new lawn, your Tasker may apply a heavier-than-usual layer of seed. They may also add fertilizer. Next, your chosen lawn specialist will cover everything with a thin layer of soil to ensure that the seed doesn’t dry out or get washed away.

Watering and maintaining the lawn

Water is vital to lawn seeding, especially if your Tasker is working with a brand-new lawn. Your lawn needs watering at least once a day to keep the top inch of soil moist, not soggy. It’s also essential to protect the seedbed from pets and people! New grass may need several months before it’s ready for foot traffic and mowing. In the meantime, you can enjoy looking at your newly-seeded lawn with that added curb appeal. 


If your specialist is working with an old lawn with existing grass, they may add another layer of seed to achieve a newer and healthier look. When it comes to overseeding lawn services, it may also involve a process called aeration. In this process, the specialist uses a core aerator to make holes throughout the lawn by pulling soil plugs. This process enables oxygen, water, and nutrients to penetrate the soil. 


For your other home-related service needs, you can look for Taskers to take care of your lawn and maintain your garden on Airtasker.

Ivan is absolutely fantastic. Not only he completed the job on time (which in itself is no mean feat), he ended up helping me to design my front yard and did a lot of extra work. He is a very passionate gardener. I love his work ethics (e.g., he stayed late to finish the garden, and worked tirelessly in heavy rain) and the quality of his work is great. His pricing is also very clear and fair. I highly recommend Ivan - five stars 🌟
