    Thanks to feedback on this site I am convinced this is better than sodding. August is the best month to seed and August is comming fast.
    Thanks

    Tim,
    I too took the advice from IDO and decided to seed. My guy broadcast spread the seed and then layed straw blankets.

    How big of an area and do you need grading and top soil?

    I just had this back area seeded a few weeks ago. I watered religiously for a week and could actually watch the grass grow.
    Now I water bout once every 5 days or so.

    I get price to hydro was more expensive than I want to pay. If I seed do I go over that with a roller and water the heck out of it. Or is putting straw over it better.

    Straw is better. It holds in the moisture better.

    Not much for a recommendation in your area, but in rural SE MN along Pool 4 we have had about 1/2 acre done around our new build. The local guy we had do it has been great but I don’t think he goes beyond Red Wing – Rochester. He’s told me I’m in about $500 per “load” and I think I’ve got 3 loads on. We’ve swapped a lot of labor and let him hunt our land over the years so it’s probably not a fair representation of cost. We did have about a 10’ x 30’ area washout on a hill and he redid it for nothing blaming his own grade work for the issue.

    On day 6 after seeding we clearly could see grass coming. Short waterings 3x a day have done it for us so far. The first ~36 hours he didn’t want any water on it as it set up. Once up 2” he said to slightly back off on watering to force the roots deeper to seek water.

    I’d be curious to hear other reports on costs/results from IDO’ers

    Eelpoutguy,
    That’s a heck of a transformation from what it started as!

    It did turn out well. I hang out there with the dogs a small glass of bourbon and a pappy cigar as often as I can.
