Fix bare spots and dead grass
A lot of lawns have weathered blistering heat and devastating drought this summer and look worse for the wear. September and October are the key times to sow new grass seed to make repairs.
Bare patches in the lawn or sections of dead grass need to be repaired to avoid opportunistic weeds that will take root in the soil. Weak or dead grass also is an open invitation to insects or disease. Late summer and early fall are the best times to sow grass seed because temperatures usually are more moderate and the soil is more evenly moist.
