Several of you provided advice last Fall about how to plant grass in my
front 'lawn,' which was basically weeds and dirt at the time. I ended up
planting rye grass after killing everything off w/RoundUp and got a nice
lawn within weeks. But I've been told that the rye will die as soon as warm
weather rolls around so I should overseed w/another variety in the Spring.
My plan is to rake, aerate and fertilize the lawn, then overseed and water.
When would be the best time to do this in Atlanta? Now?
Given that I've got rye there now, which grows pretty fast, what do I do
about mowing? Do I just cut it real short prior to seeding and not mow until
the new stuff comes up?
Any advice about what to plant? The lawn gets full sun. Thanks in advance
for your help!
