Good morning,

The best time to renovate is mid- August through late September. if you have bare ground, you do want to apply seed now (which is not the ideal time) but i would rather you have some grass seed germinate to outcompete weed seeds. know that in the fall, you would want to use a powerseeder and reapply the seed. for more information about seeding your lawn, refer to the following publication: http://www2.ca.uky.edu/agc/pubs/agr/agr51/agr51.pdf

For tall fescue variety recommendations, see the following publication: http://www.uky.edu/Ag/ukturf/varieties.html
