Thanks guys for all the help. That is what i have been doing, just pulling weeds and seeding. I planted see last week and to my surprize with all the rain we have gotten over the two weeks i actually have grass growing already in most of the areas i seeded.
Now the next step is seeding the backyard and getting that nice and strong so the dog dosnt tare it all up. When i eventually get him to stop digging it all up. He is funny though i will pull a weed out and he will think hey ill help and he digs up the dirt where i pulled the weed out of.
I dont want to have to gate off the backyard to seed hopefully i wont have to but i might if i went to get some seed to grow.
thanks again guys
