When is the best time to seed your lawn?

Successful lawn seeding can be accomplished almost any time of the year. Seeding into the lawn very early in the spring when freezing and thawing is occurring is a good way to embed the seed into the soil. Seeding can be accomplished during the spring and the summer. However, in very hot weather when evaporation is excessive it will be necessary to provide some irrigation to the newly seeded area.

Of course, the fall is an ideal time for seeding your lawn or establishing a new lawn. This is because the soil is warm, adequate rainfall usually occurs, the temperatures start to drop and the weed competition gradually lessens. I have complete planting instructions on each of my grass seed packages.
