Q. When should you plant grass seed?
Now is a good time to plant grass. The standard grass mix is probably what you have now and should continue to use. It has rye, Kentucky Blue grass and fescue and is mixed to provide an immediate cover of rye grass while the more durable grasses grow.
If all else fails, strike an agreement with your father that he will replace it with sod if the seeds don’t grow satisfactorily.
