The Best Month to Plant a Lawn in Tennessee

Plant cool-season turfgrass, such as fescue, ryegrass and bluegrass from late August to mid-October in Tennessee. Fescue and ryegrass may also be started in late winter or early spring. Plant warm-season turfgrass, such as Bermuda grass, centipede grass, St. Augustine grass and zoysia grass between May 1 and June 30. Install cool- or warm-season sod any time when the soil is not frozen.
