I finished my grading after the remodel in October.  Some of the lawn advice I got said that new grass might not over-winter well and that it might be best to seed late so it didn't germinate until spring.  That seemed reasonable to me so I waited until after Thanksgiving to seed.

 

I was out poking around yesterday and noticed I have new grass about 1" tall in the sunniest area.  Who'd have thunk it in S.E. Michigan this time of year!

 

I guess I need to hustle and get that mower set up working.

Forget the mower and get it mulched.  It needs cover to protect it from the elements and to help hold surface moisture in the spring to grow.  A good snow on top of a new seeding serves as an insulator and provides moisture.

Ditto to that, break some square bales loose and spread it out over that before the cold kills it off.

Ontario weather is messed up too... December we had rain and that froze. I had something like a 2 day week for school because of that. By now I should be knee deep in snow not ankle deep...
