As a follow-up to our previous blog post, “When is the Best Time to Grow Grass,” we here at Duke Transport thought it would be a great idea to expand on this topic, and, of course, shed further light on why the fall season is the best time grow grass.
If you’ve read our previous post, you may already know that summer isn’t the ideal time to grow grass because of its extreme temperatures, and that the fall is the perfect time because of its cooler nights, heavier morning dews, and shorter days. Well, if you aren’t convinced that you should be taking the time to sow some grass seed, here are a few other reasons why fall is the perfect time for you to get outside and get the job done:
- Less intense sunlight in the fall won’t burn and/or kill fragile new grass growth.
- Less intense sunlight throughout the fall allows the ground to retain vital water content to nourish new growth.
- Frost and freezes are no concern as colder temperatures only halt the grass blade growth, and the most important roots will continue to grow strong until the ground freezes.
- The root growth that continues long after the blades go dormant not only slows ground erosion over the wet winter and spring months, but enables your lawn to have a head start and easily handle next year’s punishing summer sun and arid conditions.
- Last, but not least, grass that is planted in the spring often never matures quickly enough to flourish or even survive the summer months. So, if you sow grass seeds in the fall, the more likely you will find greener and healthier grass once favorable temperatures arrive.
