You heard it right! You can seed during the winter months while soil temperatures are low. This method is known as dormant seeding, and has advantageous over traditional spring seeding.
Grass seed will only germinate when soil temperatures are just right. Many of us always plan to seed during the spring, but heavy rains, busy schedules, and a short spring season can lead to missed opportunities. Getting your seed down in the winter ensures it is ready to grow as soon as temperatures are just right.
One caution, however, is to be careful about the type of pre emergent you put down in the springtime. Most pre emergents will inhibit grass seed germination along with your grassy weeds, but options are available to protect your seed. Be sure to plan out your strategy, and you will love the results!
