Is there a "wrong" time of year to plant a lawn? Last year we put down turf, which I thought was really the way to go until the Raccoons started showing up each night to lift the turf squares up and look for worms. Once I was able to deter them from visiting ( I used an all natural barrier spray) for snacks, the thing turned out great. However, this spring we had a cedar fence put in. The work was done by my girlfriend's boss' Son In Law who had every excuse in the book for not starting the project, until the rainiest day of the year...(you've probably figured out where this is going by now). When these clowns were done it looked like we had some sort of truck pull in our back yard - it was a mess. I was livid, but my GF convinced me not to say anything (yes I am whipped), and for the most part after about a month went by the yard didn't look too bad, except for one patch about 3 feet x 3 feet. I thought maybe that would fill in like the rest of the spots did, but it is probably too big, and it is in a heavy traffic area, so I don't think that's gonna happen. My question is (finally), is it too late, too early, or just the right time of the year to throw some seed down, or maybe even a chunk of turf? Thanks in advance, and I apologize if this is a redundant post.
