How do I start a new lawn using seed?

Late Summer Planning

If your lawn is planted in fescue, rye or bluegrass, then plan your Autumn activities from August 1 to Labor Day. Get your soil analyzed, order seed for overseeding, stock up on compost for topdressing, check rates on rented equipment, etc. If you have a good plan, you'll know what you need when you need it, and you can spend more time enjoying your cool season lawn!
