According to my calculator you are going to need 267 Lbs. of seed per acre or 6 Lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. That would be ideal if you had irrigation. Since i don't think you do you might want to consider 8 Lbs. per 1000 or 356 Lbs. per acre. 100 Lbs. per acre is way to light. You need to use the best seed possible for your area.

When you do seed put down the seed, fertilizer and lime all at the same time. Use pelletized lime for this. You probably need lime but get a real soil test first, don't guess at what you think the soil need's.

Don't use pre-emergent herbicide until your new grass is well established. That usually mean's the following spring.

Do you have the proper tool's to do all of this ?
