There are lots of strategies that I use for seeding depending on the environment, the season, irrigatio or not, soil, existing turf thickness, etc.,,, but putting down a straw mat is never an option for me, there is a better more excellent way to start seed and grow turf, so don't let the naysayers/bullies intimidate you into staying inside your box...
This late in the season better use the straw not hydromulch
Who puts fabric down over seed I want hear more on this fabric
Somethings you say makes me
