Axe is right. You can seed when the temps come down below 85. Try to seed 8 weeks before frost--at least 6 weeks. Seed comes up fast when the soil temperature is above 70. Make sure soil is smooth and slopes gently away from house so no drainage ponding. A top quality seed blend with disease resistance is a good bet. Half Kentucky bluegrass and half perennial rye grass should work out fine. Include starter fertilizer as you till. Water every day for 30 days. If it is too big to water...just hope for rain. If no irrigation--use a lot more seed...say 6 to 8 pounds per thousand feet sq.
