    Pretty e-z, spray glysophate and kill an area of grass. Once its dead, lightly rake out the dead grass, it doesnt need to be perfect, just enuff to scratch the surface revealing some bare soil .... next procure some common bermuda grass and lightly mix with some ladino clover... note: The ladino naturally replaces nitrogen in the soil. Use a small seed hand spreader to sow the small bermuda grass & clover seeds... water & wait. If you really want it to take off once it is established, hit it with a high nitrogen fertilizer and soon you'll have a nice green carpet to chip from. Zoysia, bermuda maybe even blue grass will work, the main thing is you want a grass that spreads and can be mowed low without damage once the summer heat sets in.... Do not attempt to grow the hybrid bermuda or other exotic grasses unless your willing to devote some major time & expense with pesticides.... I tried this once and my area was destroyed by insects & worms... hence use common grass that is naturally resistant to insects & drought.... my $.02
