Since everything is greening up in spring and rainfall is abundant, it seems a reasonable assumption that it’s the best time to start grass seed. Not necessarily true. Different grass types are best germinated at different times. Tall fescue, for example, is best started in fall, so it has time to get well-established before enduring the brutal heat of mid-summer. So, first check to see what type of turf grass you’re growing before investing your time, energy, and money.
