    One of the apartment complexes I maintain had a big truck severely rut their lawn. When I repair this, should I plant Bermuda seed or will the grass just grow over the soil I fill the ruts with? Will the seed even sprout this time of year in central Texas?

    We are also in Texas. What we do this time of year is fill the ruts, seed with annual winter rye grass.

    Bermuda will not germinate unless it sees 80 degrees for a few days.

    Next spring we would seed with a blended Bermuda designed for over seeding.

    Good luck
