One may also ask, what grass grows best in my area? Cool-season grasses (fescue, bluegrass) do best in Northern climates, while warm-season grasses (St. Augustine, zoysia) fare better in Southern climates. A grass variety recommended for one area of the country may be discouraged for use in another area.

Subsequently, question is, will grass seed grow if I just throw it down?

If you simply throw grass seed onto compacted soil, you will get poor germination. I'm not a lawn expert, but if I was going to go to the cost and effort of spreading grass seed on my existing lawn, I would definitely spread a thin layer of finely sifted compost or topsoil over the top of the seed.

Will grass spread to bare spots?

Once you have addressed the cause of the bare spots, it's time to repair the damage. In most areas, the best solution is to replant the bare spot with new grass. You can apply grass seed and fertilizer separately. Spread straw as a mulch after planting the grass seed to help keep it moist and safe from birds.
