I live in the north part of Mississippi, not too far south of Memphis, TN. I have about 700 feet of gravel driveway. Either side has about 2 - 3 feet of grass, then a fence then pasture land. There are small drainage ditches on the pasture side of the fences on both sides. I want to widen the flat grass area inside the fence where my driveway is, so there will be a wider path to cut with my mower. Plus it will look better. Coming up the driveway is very narrow.
My question is: if I do that and use a dozer to move the dirt and cut the ditches out wider into the pasture, is it too late in the season to plant grass on the dirt? If not, is there a type of grass that would do better?
