    I have a small landscape job to do next week. My ? is the seed to put down. My jobs in the past always fell in the summer so the type of seed was not an issue. I know I can do winter rye but in the summer it will be gone. I usually do Bermuda in the summer jobs witch is popular in my area. It seems Ive heard of some Contractor Mix that can be put down any time of the yr? Also if I put down Bermuda now(can it be bought now?) will it be OK until spring? My thoughts are mix Winter rye with Bermuda. What do you guys in MY AREA think? thanks

    Im no expert but I think I would try to sell the rye for now and then try to do the sod job in the spring.

    I would wait until early March before seeding.
