Planting newer varieties of Kentucky Bluegrass, Perennial Ryegrass and Tall Fescues is one of the most effective ways to enhance the quality of an existing lawn. Aging grass does not produce new stems or tillers as rapidly as younger grass, so new seed gives a lawn a boost. Moreover, new seed varieties offer benefits far beyond those that were available years ago. Today’s improved grass seed was propagated to adapt better to changing landscape conditions. New varieties can help protect a lawn from drought, disease, pests, excessive traffic and shade, so as a result they need less water and pest control. Some varieties even require less fertilizer.

Throughout the northern part of the United States, early fall is the best time to seed grass. SavaLawn, a leading provider of professional lawn care services, advises homeowners and property managers to take advantage of this opportunity to introduce new seed varieties to their lawn.

Planting cool weather grass seed in early fall gives it the best chance of survival for several reasons. It avoids the extreme heat of summer and it’s easier to keep seeds moist during germination. Diseases are generally under control by this time of year. Most weeds that compete with grass are gone and established grass goes dormant, freeing up vital nutrients for new seedlings. New grass should be thick and strong enough to survive the winter, and will have sufficient time to mature before facing all the stress of summer.
