 Hydro Seeding

Last year I done a total make over of our front yard,you know the drill,round-up to kill the old grass, weeds etc. Had the soil tested and the ph level came in at 4.1 so the county agent recommend that I add about 1000 lbs. of powered lime to raise the ph level for the size of lawn and type of grass (centipede) that I would be putting in. The soil here in coastal Ga. is very poor and high in acid but it's great for growing pine trees and azaleas. I added the lime,till the soil,removed roots leveled and installed a irrigation system.We had centipede sod installed and the result was a beautiful lawn. Lots of hard work and lots of time. This year I have another yard about the same size that needs to be redone and I'm thinking about Hydro Seeding,my question is has anyone here tried hydro seeding and what kind of results. It seems quick and a lot less work and money.
Thanks, Headhog

 Hydro Seeding

Not sure about your climate, but here in Maine it seems to work well
provided you get a good mix. I found out not all applicators
mix it the same. Do your homework and talk to some pro's.
I understand it can vary greatly. Type and % of what type
of seed and fert.
Some will stand behind it 100%.

I used to work for a hydroseeding company in the Northern Virginia and Maryland area. It works great there. Here in South Alabama I never see it being done. I don't think our climate (and grass type) is good for this. I suspect that would be the case in your area too.
