I would like to know how would i go about restoring the grass in my backyard? My backyard looks really bad. There are patches of dirt where grass is missing. I just want an all green backyard, so when i start my garden it will look beautiful. Please help me. I'm a beginner at this.

There are different levels of lawn care, ranging from putting-green perfect (usually not practical for a home lawn) to something green that is mowed (more easily achieved) to everything in between. Early fall is the best time to reseed a lawn so you have some time to prepare. I would suggest you begin with some basic soil tests and determining why there are bare patches and work from there. Here is some excellent detailed lawn care information for New York state that should be helpful for you. You may need to cut and paste the complete url into your browser to make it work correctly.
