    We have a large forestted area that has relatively nice turf, but w/out irrigation, other than hose sprinklers...
    This year, one area was neglected by the h.o. in watering and it produced a lot of CG. as the grasses faded away...

    It is always bagged so there is little in the way of grass mulch to seed in, but I'll do a dormant seeding in the dead bodies of the CG, this fall...

    My question is: Has anyone had good luck with using the dead bodies of CG, w/out much grass mulch, to cover the seed for germination?
    Particularily as a 'Dormant Seeding'...

    (The soil is fine and needs no special preparation, it's just a matter of getting the seed to germinate.)
