I live in Mississauga, I want to know the timing of new grass seeding this year. Currently my backyard has no grass. What is the best time to seed my backyard this year.
Seeding a new lawn in the spring can begin as soon as the ground is warm and dry enough to be worked. This is usually around the middle of April. Begin by adding a generous layer of organic matter to improve your soil and get your new lawn off to a good start. Please refer to our Gardening Guide on soil for ideas on how to improve your soil.
LandscapeOntariohas produced a guide to starting new lawns that you may also find helpful. It is important to select a high quality seed mix that will suit your growing conditions and the new seed must be kept moist throughout the germination period.
Good luck with your new lawn.
