The Q&A Archives: Bare and marshy, wet back yard - Help!

Question: The lawn was not maintained by the previous owners. I plan to do major landscaping to fix the bare, muddy areas in the flat backyard. I already extended the downspouts underground to help resolve some of the excessive moisture, but it is still a big marshy mud pit. Is it best to try to start a bare lawn from sod or seed using a Fescue mix? Receives Partial sun and I am in the Metro DC area.
