When is the right time of year to plant new grass seeds

Seed Grows better in Early Fall
Choose the right time of year to plant new grass.

The time of year you plant grass seed has a direct effect on seeding success. Proper timing ensures that the grass effectively germinates, grows quickly and remains healthy while establishing.

Early fall is the ideal time to plant grass seed, according to the University of Massachusetts Extension Turf Program.1 At this point, the ground is still warm enough to hasten germination, while the days are cool and sometimes rainy, helping to ensure that the seeds don't dry out. In early fall there is also still sufficient sunlight to allow new grass to thrive and become established before winter arrives.

Spring seeding is your second best option. Aim to seed early in the season, before the weather warms up substantially. Spring also tends to bring periods of sunshine and rain, both of which contribute to strong growth.
