When Is The Best Time To Lay Grass Sod

on a new lawn?

The best time to lay grass sod on an existing lawn is when the first tines of the grass are at least one inch long. The ideal temperature for seeding is between 75 degrees and 80 degrees, but if you can’t get that high, then go ahead and seed as soon as you can. If you do it overnite, use cool water so the shoots don’t break off in your hand or clog up with mud!
