My wife and I moved into a home last fall and we'd like to fix up the backyard. I dethatched the "you know what" out of the lawn because it was in very bad condition (dead grass, weeds, bare spots). Part of the lawn is in the shade most of the day and is plain solid dirt and moss. I went out and purchased lime, shade grass seed, and starter fertilizer. I understand that I can't use any grub or crabgrass killer until the grass has started to grow (about 4-6 weeks I guess). Does it matter what order I put down the lime, seed, fertilizer? Will the lyme kill the seed also, or can they be on the ground at the same time? Can I lime the entire yard, or just where the moss it.

Thanks for the input!
