Abstract/Contents:"Late summer or early fall seeding of northern grasses is much to be preferred to spring seeding, although with proper care good stands of grass may be obtained from spring seeding. Where turf is so thin that reseeding is justified, however, it is advisable to seed in the spring at as early a date as possible. While the ground is still frozen it is possible to get out on the turf without injuring the grass. By sowing seed at this time advantage can be taken of the "honeycombed" condition of the soil which frequently results from alternate freezing and thawing. The seeds sown on frozen soil will lodge in the cracks of the "honeycombed" structure, will be covered by subsequent thaws, and will germinate as soon as soil temperatures become favorable and before the soil dries out."
