Hard to believe summer has nearly come and gone, but the best time of year for lawn care renovation in the mid Atlantic area is right around the corner.

Labor Day weekend project! Follow with Lesco Starter Fertilizer and Lesco Transition Blend grass seed.

Be sure with renting either an aerating or dethatching machine, schedule well in advance as peak time for these machines is in the coming weeks.

What seed is your recommendation for a shaded (90X4) = 360 sq feet area? I have a bermuda lawn(North Carolina) and a rose bed with shrub on the side. I was thinking of removing the shrubs and either laying bermuda sod or seeding. I know seeding is now not the time for bermuda lawn. Any thoughts on this?

Expertise here is on cool season grasses. Hopefully someone in the southern states will chime in.

The Lawn Care Nut didn't instruct the kid to dethatch the lawn. Also, is it wise to spray liquid weed control shortly after overseeding the lawn?

All depends on the needs of your lawn. Personally I always dethatch sometime heavier, sometimes more aggressive.

You either seed or weed control, never both same time.

Before you engage in a thatch campaigner, you might note the following, courtesy Penn State.

Thatchy turfgrass species. Some turfgrass species produce a lot of stem tissue as rhizomes or stolons. Consequently, these species form more thatch than others. The thatch forming cool-season grasses are Kentucky bluegrass, creeping red fescue, and creeping bentgrass. Perennial ryegrass and tall fescue are primarily bunch-type grasses and do not produce significant thatch build up.
