Seeding on a hill
I have a hill that needs seeding. I don't know the grade, but it's not so steep that it'll be a problem to mow, but it is steep enough that you could sled down it in the winter.
My plan has been to broadcast seed, rake seed in, lightly roll to press seed into soil, spread straw, and possibly roll again to press the straw down. I was hoping that this would be enough erosion control to get the hill seeded. However, the excavator that did the grading recommends erosion mats/blankets, but these are pretty darn expensive for such a large area. I guess I figured that I'd be OK with straw and if I developed a rut or two, I'd fill them and reseed them later.
