Nebraska homeowners with dead lawns after this year's drought should plan on reseeding their lawns. University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension experts say reseeding is the best way to deal with damage from drought or pests like grubs.

Zac Reicher says homeowners should consider putting down grass seed in their lawns sometime between November and March while the lawn is dormant.

Reicher says that seed won't germinate before winter, but the seed will be in place when temperatures start to warm up in spring. Normally, spring rains can make it hard to seed lawns because the ground is so soft.
