I have a weekend home in the Catskills, and we go up there every couple of weeks at this time of year. I'd like to overseed the lawn, but I don't go up often and I don't want to do it before the big snows come, which could happen pretty much without warning.
But here's what I don't understand: I've heard on this board (and in a post just up on overseeding) that it's best to wait until the first snow. But I don't get this. We can get a foot at a time, and it may not melt till April. Shouldn't this be done before the snows start?
I was thinking of overseeding this weekend, by the way, but don't want to do it if it's too early.
Any guidance would be appreciated by this newbie.
