I recently had some trees removed in the back yard and am in the process of turning the old scraggly natural areas into yard. I have had a bed of leaves there over the past 2 years composting and recently removed the top layer and tilled the rest into the soil, which is already excellent nice dark soil. Normally I would just rake this out and seed with fescue to match the rest of my yard, but I'm worried that since we have been so hot and dry that it will not take well. The reason I would like to get at least something down is because our dog has a dark soil radar and feels compelled to dig immediately upon sight Would seeding and watering every morning have any chance of success? It doesn't have to be pretty, just something to have some ground cover instead of letting weeds grow. I will definitely redo in the fall properly. Thanks!
