Planting grass seed
The best time to plant grass seed is from late summer to mid October. If you have full sun to part shade, plant turf type tall fescue cultivars. If you have shade, select fine fescues. Hard fescue is recommended. See recommended cultivars. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/seedingsodding-lawns
See our website on lawn care, soil testing, fertilization and the U of MD fertilization schedule.
If you have not had your soil tested within the last several years, results give pH, liming, and nutrient deficiencies. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/soil-testing
