I’ve received many questions from homeowners recently regarding fall seeding options if they’ve missed the optimal seeding window from mid-August to mid-September. If you’ve missed that window, but you still want to conduct seeding practices this fall, my recommendation is to wait until November to seed. This practice is called “dormant seeding” and is certainly an effective way to introduce new species and/or varieties of turf into your existing lawn.
If you’re lawn is brown or dormant due to the current drought, you might still have time to get some life back before winter. My recommendation is to keep (or start) watering your lawn to avoid significant winter injury. Jason DeRusha addressed this issue last night on his “Good Question” segment. Follow the link below:
