Hello I live In Indianapolis IN, and I was wondering when is a good time planting grass seed and the best way doing it?
I have some bare spots to fill in with new grass
This is really up to you. However, it is recommended that you plant the seeds in September time. This will allow any seeds that are near the surface to germinate and can then be removed. After the summer the ground tends to be warm and there is more moisture, then during the late autumn, a good root system will develop and your lawn will be ready and fresh for the coming spring and summer.
People really have several times to plant. The directions for the grass we planted (No Mow Grass) said anytime providing it will get wet...
Early Spring if you can work around mud.
Early Fall if you have regular fall rains.
Late fall if you want the seed to be dormant until spring.
You can even plant during summer IF you have no problem watering it.
