Can someone help me with my grass or "lack of grass"?

Grass is not my thing. I could care less about having a lawn but my husband wants some grass. He attemped planting winter rye last winter, which didn't look very good because he didn't amend the soil. Now it's all dead and we have nothing but weeds and dead grass. Can someone please help with recommendations for our Georgia sandy, clay soil, type of grass to sow, soil amendments, etc. He wants to hydro-seed but I really don't want to spend money on grass, I'd rather spend it on my plants.
