overseeding bare spots in lawn
I've been meaning to try to over-seed some bad spots in my lawn, but I think it's a tad late to do that now. Am I right about that. Do the seeds have to sprout and get settled before it gets too cold? For some reason I was under that impression that Fall is better than Spring for over-seeding, but does it really matter? If I decide to try it in the Spring, how do I pick the right time? Seems like too late and they'll get toasted, too soon they could catch a late freeze. If I wait til next Fall, what is the best time if now is too late?

We agree it's too late this year, but either spring or early fall should work if you are over seeding a cool season grass like Kentucky Bluegrass. Here's some information from CSU Extension: http://planttalk.colostate.edu/topics/lawns/1516-seeding-lawn/
