- Plant Grass. September is the very best month to plant cool-season grasses. Whether you are seeding a new lawn or overseeding bare spots in your existing lawn, seeding in September is optimal. Generally a blend of fescue a bluegrass is used.
- Fertilize Grass. Fertilize your cool-season grass in September, October or November with a slow release fertilizer. We have conventional & organic fertilizer options and organic starter fertilizer for lawns too!
- Lime? If you have not applied lime to your yard in the last few years, it’s time! We have dolomitic lime, hi-calcium lime, and fast acting lime. We have pH test kits for sale, and Cooperative Extension soil test boxes are available at the Garden Center on request.
- Water Regularly. Baby seedlings require more water initially – you don’t want them to dry up and wither. Keep them evenly moist while sprouting and newly sprouted. Lawns require one inch of water per week.
