    Overseeding- Applying grass seeds throught the lawn on top of the existing grass???

    Also, The other day I was watching a company travel around an apartment complex with a sprayer and spot spraying the green liquid. I know the green liquid was hydro-seed??? Is this something most people do over the browning spots?

    As you can see, I dont know much about any type of spraying. slowly learning though. Help!

    Do you mean overseed St Aug or Bermuda grass with rye for winter color?

    Or do you want to hydroseed bare spots?

    Or do you plan on overseeding every lawn as you fall round treatment?

    Not only for the license reason. I want to clear up brown spots, grow grass in spots where the dirt shows, and so on........

    The people i saw doing it, did an entire apartment complex with handheld sprayers. Is this common or a good start?
    Also, The people that were spot spraying it over dirt and browning grass. Its the same thing and works the same way just to grow in specific spots?

    Sorry dude, I thought you were serious! In my opinion, if your going to do it, do it right! Otherwise I would stick with inter grading more services to your established customers until your able to purchase better equipment.

    Filling in brown spots does not require a license. Basically the best thing to do is an aerate over seed. If you dont have an aerator you can rent one reasonably, and still make a profit. Hydroseeding really isnt much more effective.
