This depends on how much maintenance you plan on, what texture of lawn you want, and on the soil conditions in your yard. I would suggest you consult with your local county cooperative extension for specific advice. (They should also be able to help you with initial soil testing and interpreting the results.) In the meantime you may find the following publications helpful:
