Warm-season turfgrass species actively grow during the warm temperature months of the year, typically March through October. During cool periods of the year these species often go dormant.
Cool-season turfgrass species grow best during cool temperature months, primarily October through March. These species can be seeded into dormant warm-season turfgrass species to provide green color during late fall into early spring.
