I live in the Northeast and my area has been put under drought restrictions. Watering of lawns is prohibted. I moved into my new home last June and didn't get much of a lawn going since it was already a little late to get started.

Should I bother trying to do some seeding again now even with the restrictions, or should I **** it up and say "maybe next year" ? Does anybody have any advice for trying to start up a new lawn ?

You need to start a new lawn when you have a source of water...contact your county extension office and find out the best time to plant. In the North West its either early fall or early spring.

The best time is in the fall. The soil is warm enough to let the seeds germinate yet the grass isn't stressed by the hot afternoon sun. The roots continue to grow in the winter until the ground freezes.

Second best time is late winter (actually mid-winter, late January, early February, in the mid-west).

You need to keep the soil moist until the seed germinates. Then 1/2" twice a week.
