Most people would call it "hydroseeding". Basically we have a tank with an agitator in it. We put in water, mulch that is made from either recycled newspapers or lumber, add grass seed and fertilizer, then spray it on the ground. We put in some nifty little products like "tackifier" to help hold it in place. etc.

Thanks BMF

Do you really need tackifier when doing a lawn that size? I thought the tackifier was used only in really hilly places.

a good rain will ball it all up, use tack to hold it in place, even on level ground. There's all kinds of goodies to put with the stuff.

Ryan-
Hydromulch is a term used to describe a process in which a truck pulls up, a could guys run it and spray grass seed out of a nozzle kinda like on a fire truck. It is mix with other stuff to keep from washing away. It works really well.

Thanks East

We use tack in every load, it holds the material in place and even keeps it from being blown away if the people don't water it...than it will germinate in the rainy season :blob3:

Tack also helps to reduce friction in the hoses, makes for less clogs.
