Deal with it this summer. Seed it in the fall.

the tree job destroyed the entire back yard and one side. i just had an existing patio demolished and replaced with a new patio, that made a nice path of mud through my front yard. there are no good areas really.

Unless you are getting rain, you best water that at least a minimum of twice a day, for 10 minutes each time. You need to keep the top seed bed wet, but not soaked. Especially if you are having hot temps.
