Default Grass Seed- Suggest One

I am in Tarrant County and have some dirt that I am thinking about seeding for grass. This spot in the yard gets tons of sun and lots of water when it rains. I can till it before throwing seed. I'm leaning toward seed because I have more time than money.

What type of seed should I use? Or any other suggestions....

I would get some type of Zoysia. Maybe Zenith Zoysia Grass Seed or something similar. Make sure you follow the follow germination instructions.

Bermuda. Zoisa is great in shady areas, wont do great in an only rain area. Bermuda is very drought tolerant.

Palisades Zoysia like full sun not shade, Emerald and Cavalier zoysia’s do better in shade. Palisades Zoysia is one of the most drought tolerant of the Zoysias.
In fact, some studies have shown it to survive up to 15 weeks without water. Another crucial distinguishing point about Palisades Zoysia that it can be mowed to as low as ½ inch in height.

Stick with something native, several good native mixes from Bamert Seed, Native American Seed, or Turner Seed.

Is this area going to have any traffic/animals or are you just covering up the dirt?
