The Q&A Archives: Grass on a hill

Question: I have a sloped front and grass seed washes away.

Answer: After sowing, cover the soil with an erosion preventing material, like seed-free wheat or barley straw or excelsior matting that can be pegged into place. Grass seed will germinate in 7-10 days when the weather is warm and the roots should help anchor it in place. Best wishes with your lawn.
