Our new yard is currently a mixture of bare soil, weeds, and some "wild" running fescue. I'd like to get a head start on the lawn by putting some grass seed before winter hits. I'm tired of mud and dust - I want a lawn! A neighbor who is also a landscaping guy tells me I can scalp the existing green stuff, spread some seed (I'm planning on 80% kentucky blue and 20% rye) after Thanksgiving and over the winter the snow, etc. will push the seed into the soil and in the spring it will sprout. Does this actually work? Has anyone tried this - if so, what were your results?
