I did mine last weekend and I think a lot of it ended up washing away in the torrential downpours yesterday. I thought I was so smart because the 5-day forcast called for "gentle showers". Oh well.

There are some good current threads on what some others of us are doing this fall:

Anyone growing Kentucky Blue Grass?

Lawn rescue & replacement- Wake Forest NC

What Brand of Fescue Grass Seed are you overseeding with this fall?

Mine was ready for the seed and I just ran out of time on Monday night. Soooo glad I did.

I have a mostly flat yard and I reseeded on Sunday. I'm hoping that my seed didn't wash away. Being that it's mostly flat, tho, I doubt that it did.

Can anyone confirm this? Will all the water hurt the seed?

It depends how much rain you received ... did you cover it with straw?

I seeded Saturday, covered with straw. No sign of washed away seed here but we didn't get the deluge that the Holly Springs area got.

Nope, didn't cover with straw. We got a lot of rain, maybe 3-4 inches, but I didn't see any run off from my yard. I guess I can go out there and check but I wouldn't know if the seeds got absorbed into the ground or if they just washed away.

I fertilized, limed and threw down some seed 2.5 weeks ago. My lawn is green and growing like crazy. I think I timed it perfectly with the rain. I did not aerate this year.
