Planting grass seed

Asked September 30, 2019, 1:22 PM EDT

We live in northern Mi near Gladwin. Is it too late to plant grass seed? If I do, should I cover it with straw?

It is really past the time for a successful planting. As for the straw , it can help keep the soil from washing seed and keeping the soil moist. Check out the following links:
