grass seeding #851211

Asked September 25, 2023, 4:44 PM EDT

Hello, I removed weeds (creeping Charlie) and hostas from the center of my front yard that the previous owner planted. I am planting a serviceberry tree tomorrow in a portion of it. The remaining 9 feet of dirt in a circle is left there. I wish to plant grass seed, but know that it is late in the year. Do you have a suggestion for this to look nice until it snows? Should I plant the seed, let it be or sprinkle woods chips on for now?

Fall is a great time to seed grass. Typically the best timeframe is between August - September. This year September - early October is good based on the previous heat. I have attached a link below that details establishing a lawn with dead or sod. It includes types of seed mixes as well as how to plant and care for it as it grows.
