Best time to Plant grass in Calgary

Updated: Mar 23, 2023

The best time to plant new grass in Calgary depends on the type of grass you want to plant.

For cool-season grasses such as Kentucky bluegrass, fine fescue, and perennial ryegrass, the best time to plant is in late spring or early fall. These grasses thrive in the cooler temperatures and moderate moisture of spring and fall, and can be planted as early as late May and as late as mid-September.

Warm-season grasses such as Bermuda grass, Zoysia grass, and centipede grass are better suited for the warmer temperatures and longer growing season of summer. These grasses should be planted in the late spring or early summer, typically between late May and mid-July in Calgary

In general, it's best to wait until the soil has warmed to at least 10 degrees Celsius before planting new grass. It's also important to ensure that the soil is moist and that there is a forecast for adequate rainfall in the days following planting.
