|Most lawns in your region are a combination of warm season and cool season grasses. Bermuda is the warm season grass and perennial rye the cool season grass. The usual process is to seed the bermuda now. It will grow and remain green all summer long. In September mow low and overseed with perennial rye. The rye will green up just as the bermuda begins to go dormant. You can aerate your lawn first, then seed and you can do this either in the spring or the fall.
