If you are going seed route, Big box stores carry patck kits. Kinda DYI hydroturf.
I reseeded some areas a few years ago, birds are a lot of the seed. Filled in ok. Just epensive bird seed.

That really helps the man out with his question.

If you seed water often.

Nice troll post...again.
Seed or sod will both work, depends on your patience level.

I've used the seed on small areas with mixed results. Break up the soil, drop the seed, cover with a little topsoil, and water often until it establishes.

Thanks fellas, I’m going to experiment with the seed just because I’m curious. Unfortunately my yard is so small it won’t take much

I put this lawn in with a fertilizer spreader and leaf rake after I hauled in 12 loads of dirt to cover the rocky hill up.

Only time I’ve had seed work is when over seeding an established yard with good thatch.

If it's sloped, and could run off, go with sod.

If it's fairly flat, and gets sun most of the day, seed is fine. I made a nice two acre yard with just seed. I've never bought a single square of sod in my life.

The hotter the weather, the better with Bermuda, provided you can water it when we are in summer. After one year of baby-ing infant Bermuda, just let it be, you cannot get rid of it. The month that makes the best Bermuda yard, historically is June. It is typically always warm, and we get some rain. At least in my part of the state.

GCI Alpha Elite is expensive but worth it. I started from nothing. I scaryfied the dirt and put down this seed and it has gone from nothing to this in a month and a half. I set my sprinklers to run for 3 minutes every hour. It sprouted within a week. Hit it with a good fert program and it will be worth it.

I have some incredible Bermuda from seeds growing, but 'downhill' from where I broadcast the seeds! frown

When i put bermuda seed out I watered it daily. Was very slow to grow...then someone said it needed to have water twice a day. May be coincidence but the additional water made a difference right away.

Keep it wet until it germinates.

The Maya that is in that mix is pretty meh. But the Blackjack and Riviera will dominate and I think you'll be happy with those.

Can I seed right after killing the weeds with herbicide? Say right after the patches turn brown and I pull out the dead stuff, or do I have to wait a few weeks?

Depends on what you sprayed it with I would guess. I have some stuff I spray my gravel drive edges and fence lines with that supposedly sterilizes the dirt for 6+ months.

Depends on what you used. If you used 24D yes, should be fine if you used glyphosate I'd wait a few weeks.

It's the opposite. 24D you need to wait 2-3 weeks. If you use 41% Gly you can spray it in the morning and seed that afternoon. But you want to make sure you use the correct Gly. The one like Season long has pre emergent in it. That wouldn't work out well trying to over seed with.
