    Hey guys I need some advice in a hurry. A guy stopped at a job I was landscaping the other day and asked me to look at reseeding part of his lawn. Said he fertilized this summer and part just died. I assume he burned it. I was thinking of renting a overseeder and putting some seed down that way. I think I'm getting real short on time here to seed grass. It's about 14' x 17'. Really the whole back yard could use it I think. Thanks Dave:confused:

    Aerate, broadcast seed, and pray. It probably is getting late in your area.

    Too late probably if he is expecting to see results this year. Even if you do what 65Hoss says, I thinks it's way too late.

    Tell him you can do it in the Spring

    Thanks guys. I believe you're right. They're calling for rain mixed with snow all the rest of this week. If the ground ain't cold yet and it is, it will be soon. Dave

    I would agree, you are better off waiting. It will be too cold before you know it.
