|Fall is actually a good time to reseed bare areas in your lawn. The cooler temperatures of fall will help the lawn establish a healthy root system before winter weather sets in. Be sure to rake the bare areas to break up the soil before reseeding. It's important that the seeds make good contact with the soil. After seeding, sprinkle a thin layer of compost or peat moss over the seeds. This will help keep them moist and should also hide the seeds from hungry birds. Best wishes with your lawn.
