This late it's better to just wait until spring to seed. You really aren't going to gain anything by planting this fall and you risk having it rot or get killed over the winter depending on when cold weather arrives.

Hey drew60.

Given the latitude of Bucks County, you are right at the end of the grass seed season. A warm, wet fall will get you grass that handles the winter. If it turns colder than normal soon, then you won't. I agree with Msradell on this one. Wait for early spring.

I hope this helps,
