The Best Time in March to Plant Grass in Tennessee

Establish grass sod any time during March, or any other time of year, in Tennessee. Otherwise, sow cool season grass seeds, such as bluegrass, fescues and ryegrass in August to mid-October for the best results. Start warm-season grasses like Zoysia species, St. Augustinegrass, centipedegrass and bermudagrass in May through June when temperatures are between 80 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit.
