The first day of fall is upon us, and while the season is known for many things including the harvest, pumpkins and cooler weather, it’s also the best time of the year to establish and reseed cool-season grasses, which are popular in Kentucky lawns.

“The ideal time to plant cool-season grasses like tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass is from about the third week of August until the first of October,” said Gregg Munshaw, extension turfgrass specialist in the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment. “If we seed much later than Oct. 1, we don’t always get good germination.”
