Questions about planting new lawn and what to do next

7 years ago

I recently had a new driveway poured which is much higher than my original walk/driveway. I ended up having to regrade a lot of the yard, and also added topsoil to many low spots in the yard. I have attached a picture so you can see what I am talking about. I plan on reseeding the yard. Some of the new topsoil has grass under it, while some does not.

I planned on purchasing grass seed and basically just seeding the entire lawn like it were new. Is this a good idea? I have never planted a yard before so other than my research regarding seed type, amount of seed, water, etc I dont know anything. I imagine that in many places the grass beneath the top soil will begin to come through.

This is something I really only want to do once.
