You can definitely sod at this time and anytime until the ground freezes, but for seed, it is getting late. Check the soil temperatures, to determine if you will still get germination this year and will have a water source to keep the seed moist until establishment. Rye will like germinate and establish at this time, but Bluegrass or Fescue will likely suffer due to winter temperatures, apparently coming early.

Its not too late too sod but it is too late seed. The seed needs the warmer temperatures to help it germinate.

**I didnt see the above post prior to my post**

Anyway as much as Tru-green has a bad reputation it is a good time to go after those customers you have that use Guardian. If you dont want them and are around the Jackson, Howell area tell them to call me, I would be happy to take over.
I hate Tru-Green
i saw an add this week from another co. specifically targeting guardian's old clients. headline reads: 'who's on guard now?' and says 'did you know you know that your tree and lawn contract has been sold to a national company?' goes on to say that they are cross-honoring all contract pricing for a limited time. i no longer do chem apps, but for fwiw, the two clients i had that used guardian have converted over to a different company i referred to them. gotta love tgcl, two steps forward and one step back.

I have also picked up about two dozen ....so far... and I sent a letter to all my lawn customers that had Guardian about TG and will most likely get them also.
