Many lawn care professionals and homeowners debate the best time to establish a yard in Iowa, and how much more work and inputs it will take if planted the wrong time of year. Additionally, so many different turfgrass species are sold, that a side-by-side comparison of seed mixtures and planting dates is needed. The objectives of this study are to compare turfgrass seed that is locally, commercially available, commonly used, and planting timings. This is the first year of a two-year study.
