Your opinion...Do grass plants "wear out"?

    Somewhere over the last year or 2 I read about the fact that the grass plant, like most landscape plants, has a limited life span, after which the turf becomes less vigorous and healthy and overseeding or slitseeding is recommended. Do you agree with that point of view? We plan to do more seeding marketing this spring and I'd like to have a reference on this topic for our next newsletter.

    I seem to recall I got this from one of the respected ag depts like Purdue but I'm not sure

    Rutgers teaches the same thing. I take a class/day seminar there once a year. I think it was 2 tears ago the instructor stated the same. Aerating and overseeding was highlighted many times that day. I usually mention that when selling those services. I will try to find something in print. This may take a few days to dig up. Matt
