Its best to overseed in late September. I did mine in late October and it turned out great since we had very warm temps last year.

I think early spring would be a good time to fertilize and add pre-emergent but I'm not an expert.

Best to overseed in the fall. You can't overseed and put pre-emergence down at the same time. Well..I guess you can..but your grass won't come up. Just go ahead and aerate and overseed early spring. Or better yet...wait til late spring and sod with some Bermuda.

I aerate and seed & fertilzer in September, put down first dose of pre-emergent down mid feb, fertilize a week later, fertilize again about 6 weeks later, pre- emergent again first to mid May. I threw down some in a patch a couples weeks ago and already coming up.

Fall is definitely best. I tilled up the front yard in Oct. My yard is the only one around that's been green through the winter and it's fescue. Heck I had to mow yesterday since it has been warm and so rainy!

the dark of the moon in february. That is what the old timers always do. Almost every seed will germinate. The full moon in Feb is the 25th so I would sow anywhere around that

I fertilized, etc., several years ago.

After having to mow every 3-4 days over a wet summer, I vowed to NEVER do that again!

I was told to seed in September so the grass will have time to develope a good deep root system. This is suppose to help it withstand summer's heat and drought.

I was also told that we are too far south for northern grasses and too far north for the southern ones.

To have a good looking lawn around here is a lot of work but if you enjoy that kind of thing then go for it. Good luck with your lawn.

Me too!

I have a 3 acre yard and WISH it were 100'x100' during mowing season
