reseeding in summer

may I seed bare spots in my lawn in the summer
Submitted by BHGPhotoContest


Summer is not a good time to try and reseed. Lawn seed does best in the spring and fall when the weather is cool and moist. You can certainly try, especially if the spots are small and you can water them daily, but the best time is later in the early fall. Summer seeded grass also doesn't always develop a very deep root system.
