Cool season turf is grown from seed by turf suppliers and growers, and can be installed as turf rolls. If the turf has suffered any damage or thinning out, the lawn area can be over sown with the same grass seed to increase density of the turf grass. It is important to understand the germination characteristics of different seed varieties and when is the best time to spread the seed for best seed germination results in Georgia .

Once grass is planted, there are additional concerns with watering, fertilizing and weed control.
