Backyard grass issues NEED HELP


Got the soil samples a few weeks ago. Here is a link if you wish to take a look.

I have been too busy with the front yard, but I am getting around to the back yard now. Almost all of the crab grass has died off leaving much of the yard bare now. Since I won't be able to get any seed down this year because of all the necessary prep work and I am already late to begin with, will I be able to put seed down in the spring and have any chance of survival during the hot summers?

You can plant grass seed in the spring but it takes more consistent watering than in the fall. Which is why the fall is my choice. This also gives you time to establish a root system in the young grass over the winter and spring before getting hit with the hot summers in NC / VA for me. Regardless, it will work if you plan correctly for the spring. You would want to pay attention to any drought tolerance issues during the summer though.

You will be fine in spring but just plan on doing the soil prep and planting the seed as soon after dangers with regard to freezing and frost are past.
