    Sun water and nutrients , if you don’t have the right kind of grass you can plant some seeds made for shade or sun whatever you have most of

      That’s all correct. I’m lucky I’m in Florida so I’ve always used St. Augustine grass but zoysia, Bahia and centipede grow in the shade and centipede and st Augustine aren’t as picky about the soil they are in. Water it once daily in summer and 3 times a week in fall/ winter in most places but if you have snow wait until after the last frost to put down any seed. Or to buy sod. If you want to put sod down it’s easier than you think. You can rent a sod cutter to get your old lawn up in most cases and till 2-3” of your soil and lay the sod like you lay tile or wood flooring. Water it down so it stays give it 4-6 weeks to root in and when or if you see yellow tips on the grass mow it just trim top 2-3 inches off

    Do some research on a product call Milorganite. It's a slow release, organic, nitrogen rich fertilizer that works wonders.

    Sunlight and fertilizer even grass needs to be fed to grow nice and thick. You might check with a nursery for fertilizer recommendations.
