When to Plant Grass Seed
Fall is best for planting cool-season grasses like Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrasses, and tall fescues. Daytime air temperatures should be averaging between 60 and 85 degrees which translates to soil temperatures between 50 to 75 degrees. Spring is the second best option for cool-season grasses. Warm-season grasses, like Bermudagrass, Bahiagrass, Centipede grass and Zoysia grass has the most successful germination rates in spring and early summer when daytime temperatures are averaging about 80 degrees.
