Dormant Seeding Bare Patches in the Lawn

Someone said I could dormant seed the bare spots in my lawn in fall. How is this done and will it work?

Dormant seeding is done in late fall. Grass seed is planted late in the year so it will be in place and ready to grow next spring. Success is dependent on proper timing and the weather. Grass seeded too early or warm fall temperatures can result in fall sprouting. The tender grass seedlings can be killed by cold winter temperatures. If you feel lucky, give it a try. Wait until the soil temperatures drop below 45 degrees Fahrenheit Otherwise sow grass seed in early to mid May or late August through mid September for more reliable results.
