DON'T plant cool season grass seed in spring. Planting in spring exposes the seedlings to fusarium blight and other disease pathogens. The survivors will then be subjected to the intense heat and arid conditions of summer. What little grass is left in fall will then have to be overseeded in fall anyway. Best to wait until late August at the soonest.
