Why The Fall Season Is Usually The Best Time To Plant Grass Seed

by Ben Waterbury on 10/24/11

 The hot temperatures of summer are past. This makes it easier to keep the seed moist during germination. The young plants have better growing conditions without extreme heat.

Most of the weeds that compete with grass are dead and diseases are under control for the rest of the year. Weed and disease chemicals cannot be sprayed on new grass without injuring or killing it.

The new grass will have the fall and spring seasons to mature before facing all the stress of summer heat, traffic, competition, mowing, inappropriate watering, diseases, etc.

Planting in fall avoids several springtime problems: cool soil temperatures delay germination, soil may be too moist to prepare, weeds dominate the early growing months. Higher percentages of seed germination are likely since soil temperature and moisture levels are more favorable or can be controlled more readily.
