When To Plant Grass Seed In Montana [VIDEO]

Montanans love their lawns. If yours (like mine) needs a little help this Spring, there are a couple things to know about the best time to plant some new grass seed.

We all know the weather is nuts around here in the Spring so saying that “late April” or “early June” is the best time to plant isn’t always right from year to year.

What you DO need to wait for:

  • Daytime temperatures to remain in the 70s or higher.
  • Overnight temperatures to remain consistently in 40s.

This is because the ground temperature really needs to be in the 50s or higher for your grass seed to germinate. You also need to be prepared to keep your fresh seed reasonably well watered in the beginning. My trick: I try to plan for a very rainy week so that far less effort on my part is needed for the watering!
