Our year-round green grasses are best planted in the fall and spring of each year. Early fall is considered by turf experts to be the best planting date because this allows for more growing time under ideal growth conditions (soil temperatures of 50 – 65 degrees). Spring is considered second best. Planting in summer is also an option, but irrigation is critical. Planting when night time temperatures are above 70 should be avoided altogether.
