Planting Rye Grass

Planting rye grass is a quick way to get a green lawn or sports area.

Rye grass can be an annual or perennial - annual grasses are typically used for pastures and agriculture and perennial are typically used for lawns and sports turf although there are versions that can be used for either!

When planting rye grass in warmer areas to maintain a green lawn in winter, you typically overseed the existing lawn. This grass sprouts pretty easy so you don't need to disturb the currently growing or dormant lawn too much. Of course, frequent watering the first week is essential. It can be planted at any time as long as the ground is not frozen.

Planting rye grass is one of the easiest lawn tasks you can undertake. It can be sown without tilling or digging into the soil.
