Answer: It's actually too early to reseed. Wait until early September when temperatures are cooler and the new grass will germinate quickly and thicken up faster than if you try reseeding now. Straw will help the soil and seeds maintain moisture which will help more seeds germinate but you can get the same results with a thin layer of compost or peat moss which will break down faster than straw and add nutrients to the soil as it breaks down. Good luck with your turf.
