Establishing a Cool Season Grass Playing Surface from Seed - The Window is Closing

As we enter the season of fall, the window to establish a playing surface from seed is closing.  If seeding cool season turf (bluegrass, ryegrass, tall fescue) is still desired this fall, consider using a blend that includes more perennial ryegrass as the ryegrass will germinate quicker and has a better chance to survive early spring traffic.  If construction issues cause further delays annual ryegrass may need to be considered followed by a permanent spring seeding.  HERE is a great publication from Purdue University detailing establishing turf areas from seed.
