    When the grass starts growing? Usually early spring.

    Cool season grass will grow slow with enough sun and temps as low as 50° F. Fast and best in temps ranging between 65°F and 85°F. Expect slower growth again in mid summer at very hot temps.

    Visit with your county's extension office. They should be able to inform you as to what to expect with your specific species of grass in your area.
