As mentioned previously, cover crops help prevent soil erosion. Some gardens (especially those located in hilly or mountainous areas) may have a problem with this, and planting cover crops after you harvest is a great solution. Cover crops also work well as a weed barrier. They prevent weeds from taking hold in the area simply because they were there first, meaning they can monopolize the nutrients that weeds need to survive. One thing to be mindful of is that some of your cover crops could start acting like weeds and take over your garden if not they're not harvested before going to seed.
Having grass seed on hand can be helpful for a few reasons. For instance, you never know when you may have to add a little grass seed to a patch of bare soil on your lawn. Just rough up the ground a little and lay it down. Water it thoroughly and cover it with a bit of straw to protect it from hungry birds. It can be also helpful to buy seed varieties that fit your lawn's needs, especially if you happen to have a lawn that gets a lot of shade during the day.
