This is a huge project. You may want to work with your local county extension to run some basic soil tests, determine how best to amend your soil based on the test results, and then decide which grass variety would be best for your situation. Keep in mind also that the best time to start a new lawn is (surprisingly) in the fall. In the meantime, their web site offers a lot of advice you may find helpful.
