Doing your own seeding isn’t difficult, it’s just time consuming! The absolute best time to seed a bare area or overseed existing fescue is mid-September to mid-October. We would advise September, because you never know what kind of weather you’ll get into later than that. You can seed in the spring, but results won’t be as good. Fescue is a cool season grass and its growing season starts in the fall. Most of our service area (Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee) is in a transition zone where it technically gets too hot for fescue. If you seed in the spring, DO NOT apply pre-emergents to those areas, or your seed won’t germinate. If you have a lawn care company, you must tell them that you are going to seed, no matter when you’re doing it.
Here’s what you’ll need:
