Just overseed it with some fescue or something nice get growth started back be the easiest way with no experience unless you were asked to sod it, while it sets for germination start working on the beds, walkway edges, and around the house they need much attention.

But not sure of your location either.

I have plenty of experience laying sod, just looking for other options on fixing yards. By the way this is not a potential client of mine this is just a yard I found that if I was ever asked to fix something like this I wanted to know what the options were . Thanks for the replies.

Aerate, black gypsum, seed, top dress, lightly seed, then straw rolls for coverage. Starter fert for good measure.
