Default Kentucky blue

We are in the process of building our cabin, and wanted to plant a little
over 1.25 acres of Kentucky blue on a portion of the remaining land. The
soil is of the sandy type, and we are located in southern Oregon at around
4500 ft. The property originally had pine trees and sage brush. Some of the
pines remain, but I have rough graded the property to rid it of the sage and
tree stumps. We are not expecting to move in until the fall of '04, so we
have time to do everything right.

If any, what would you recommend as a topsoil combination? Best and most
efficient way of smoothing out the rough grade, so no there are no abrupt
changes throughout the lawn? Sod, seed, or hydroseed? Best time of year to
plant? Any other tips that would be beneficial? Thanks in advance.

Something with organic matter is a real fine way to start. Beware of the
shredded fill dirt that some label as topsoil.

A Bobcat with a rock-hound implement,if you're not trying to change the
grade much.

Best time is fall.

Btw..never plant all the same variety of grass seed.

So what would you recommend with Kentucky blue? I would like to keep the
dark green look and soft feel theme.
