Till and reseed entire lawn or repairable?

I said I would post some pics, but I just updated my other post with before and after pics of weed killer application.

Should I water more often than not looking at the current condition of my lawn? Plan on reseeding in September.

The previous owners never watered the lawn before.
Near Leonia?

Watering frequency and watering intensity governs the depth of the roots and I think you want deep roots.

I think I'm going to purchase the Black and Decker cordless cultivator and get some Scotts Patchmaster Tall Fescue Grass.

Been researching and looking at people's blog posts and it looks like it grows very well and may be much cheaper than getting grass seeds, fertilizer, etc..

In any case, I am watering the lawn plenty enough. My seeds started to germinate and can see it sprouting. Will continue my regular routine.

Thanks!

If you really care about making it nice and green so it looks like the other lawns that hire a lawn service, then yes.

Once a year, only for my front yard I do this:

Water the entire area very well, maybe several hours or more if ground is dry.
Buy box of Miracle grow, either select or Miracle grow for Lawns.

Put it in miracle grow dispenser attach to hose and apply by hand to the whole front lawn.

Give it several good watering sessions over the next few days, starting about a day after you apply the miracle grow.

Like others said, mow as high as your mower goes, let it grow as long as you can.

If you use the miracle grow like I described with the watering, you will notice a dramatic improvement in how green the lawn is within a few days.
