Q: Is fall a good time to plant turf grass?
A: It depends whether you are using seed or sod, and what type of grass you want. But before you do anything, get your soil tested. Healthy grass starts with healthy soil. Download forms and instructions here: Soiltesting.tamu.edu
More information about growing healthy grass is covered in this comprehensive article that includes selection the best grass for your area (seeds/sprigs/plugs/sod, cool season and warm season grasses), how and when to plant for best success and taking care of your new lawn (mowing, watering and fertilizing).
