    Grass is dormant (not dead) in winter... below 40 degrees for most varieties. Look to forecast for Last Frost... start then. I'd get local advice.

    You CAN overseed Under snow... that means you need to watch the forecast in late winter/ early spring. Get seed spread on the ground if there is a forecast for 1/2" or more of snow followed by a 1 week warming trend. The snow acts as irrigation and shelter from birds.

    A lot of grasses will be dormant in the winter. Before the first freeze, you can help your grass by giving your lawn a thorough fertilizing to replace all of the nutrients that can be lost from the soil during the hot summer months. Once the weather turns cold, the fertilizer will remain in the soil and feed your lawn’s roots all winter long.
