The best time to renovate your lawn is NOW!  Seeding now while the temperatures are still warm will ensure the best possible germination.  As soil temps. cool so do percentages of germination.  But remember, you must keep the seed bed moist at all times and not allow it to dry out.  Once the seed pod breaks open, the plant must have consistent water to continue it's germination cycle.  It is also important to remember to water frequently after watering up until and in some cases past dormancy.  We recommend watering 2-3 times per day during the germination cycle (approx. 2 weeks for fescue) and every day thereafter until the plant is completely established.  Aeration is also very important to lawns this year to help open up the soil for oxygen, water and nutrients after the exceptional drought.
