Seed definitely wait. You can sod but you will need to be diligent about watering for a while.
Excellent. Many thanks. I was thinking about maybe just making the whole backyard a tomato farm until Fall.
go with the tomato farm.
You have to seed in cooler weather because of the water requirements. 90% of grass sowed now dies. Like zoinks says - sod is doable but you have to be super-super diligent about watering for probably a couple of months.
reminds me of a house I came across in Livingston that managed to avoid having a front lawn. I was impressed, though they could stand to do some weeding.
25 x 35 feet is a nice size for a summer veggie garden. If (but only if) you then decide to convert to grass: 4 1/2 weeks before summer ends, up to a bit less than 1 1/2 weeks after summer ends, is THE recommended (by these guys, whose judgement is trustworthy http://turfblog.rutgers.edu/?p... ) time to sow. Unless it's only perennial rye - in which case you have an extra 2 weeks.
Mr. H Pierson recommended the same time frame, I recollect.

I'd like to put either sod or seed down in my backyard. I'm not sure which to do. Also, is now the wrong time to start such a project? I originally starting tilling my yard for a large garden, but for a number of reasons, ended up tilling the whole thing. It's not big, about 35 feet by 25 feet. Any advice welcome. Many thanks in advance.
