I live in northern NJ (Denville, Morris County) and want to plant grass seed in yard where there was previously tress & brush. I recently cleared the trees, stumps, brush & debris and plan to throw grass seed to germinate grass. I plan to drop a top (2") layer of top soil prior to seeding.
I do plan to rake, drop the seed, then re-rake the soil to ensure seed is covered by moist soil. The area is a southern and western exposure with good morning and early afternoon sun surrounded by wooded areas so it is not field or plain like setting.
When/ what temp is the best time to drop soil & seed?
What type (mixture) of seed should I use?
Any advice is highly appreciated.
Use a mix like some bluegrass and some rye. You can plant it now. Cover with only 1/2" or less top soil at the end. Fertilized two days prior to seeding. Add lime around end of May.
Don't forget to mulch! No need to cover with soil, just make sure you get good seed-to-soil contact.
