There are seed mats available but they're normally used for patching bare spots in established lawns. You could, however, use them to plant a new lawn. What's nice about this method is that you simply lay out the mats, anchor them down and keep them watered. The all-natural plant fibers will completely degrade over 90 to 180 days, depending on your climate, releasing Nitrogen to help plants get a healthy start.
