Too late?

We have been receiving a lot of calls lately asking if it is too late to seed or sod.

We recommend seeding between mid August until mid September.  This way, the seed has enough time to germinate and grow strong enough to survive the winter.  However, we never know when winter will arrive, so seed may still have enough time if planted right now … but do it soon.

Sod, on the other hand, is an established plant.  Therefore, it can be harvested and laid, winter can arrive the next day, and it will freeze until spring when it will begin to grow again.  The only thing to remember is the sod roots will not yet be established in the soil; therefore in the spring the watering schedule should begin as if the sod was just laid.

So for seed, as soon as possible; for sod, until mid to end of November.
