When is the best time of the year to plant seed or sod my lawn?

You can sod while turf is dormant in the winter time, however my recommendation is that you sod during the months that turf will have optimal growing conditions. In Albany, Texas and the surrounding big country, the most suitable turf for our climate is a warm season turf. Examples of warm season turf are St. Augustine, Bermuda, and Buffalo Grass. When the night time temperature is 58* or above consistently, these types of warm season turf will see their optimal growth begin.
