Grass seeding question
I'm having to have a pretty good sized live oak cut that split pretty bad due to the ice. Once I get the stump ground up, and fill in the area with some dirt, I'd like to get some grass to grown. Is seeding an option? Or should I just look to buy some sod. The grass in the area is pretty sparse already due to the tree causing so much ground shade.

re: Grass seeding question
What type of grass do you have around there now?

It sounds like a small enough area, so sod is probably your best bet. Quick and easy to establish.

There is not a seed option for St. Aug, just sod.

Unless you have a reason other than I just want to fill in the bare spot you might consider leaving it for a while. The roots and any other part that is still in the ground with rot and that spot will sink. If you put sod (seed isn't going to work) then you'll likely fill it in with dirt again in the near future.

re: Grass seeding question
What would be the best seed for a large area say 2-3 acres that grows well in both tree shaded and open property?

Honestly, nothing. Improved Bermuda would do good in the full sun areas. Fescue would do good in the shade. You’ll have to seed fescue in the fall so it could establish roots through the fall and spring to withstand summer heat. Fescue is clumpy so you’ll have to seed it multiple years.
