    Default Planting Grass on a Steep Hill

    Does anyone have any advice on how to plant grass on a steep hill side? I am think seed it and aerate it to help keep the seeds from washing away.

    I have seen people put burlap down held in witg stakes and seed onto it. A good watering and the seeds will be imbeded in it and won't wash away.

    It depends on how steep and how big an area, but we have had good luck with some of the various biodegradable fabrics. There are some to simply cover the seeds, and there some some with seeds in the fabric.

    The hill is so step that if it was damp it was all the Cub Cadet wanted to go up over it. I alteady have a bunch of grass seed, 100lbs. I do have a little bit of burlap but not nearly enough. It is a strip that never had grass on it and the top soil washed off. It probably 15 to 20 feet wide and maybe 200 feet long. I used that dupont seed germination blanket in a area were a lot of water drains. It worked well but was expensive.
