Grass Seed Or Sod/Tiff? - Knowledgebase Question

Mesa, Ar
Question by windwalker9

I want to plant winter grass in a backyard that hasn't had it for a couple of years. Some of the earth is bare and flat. Do you recommend rolling out sod over these areas rather than palnting seed?

Most lawns in Mesa are a combination of bermuda and perennial ryegrass. I'd mow the lawn really low (scalp it!) then rake the bare areas and overseed with perennial rye. If you do it now while the weather is still warm, the seeds will germinate in about a week and your lawn will green up in 10-14 days.
