Last fall I had my driveway repaved, the result is a driveway that is 3" higher than the lawn. My driveway egde is 300 lineal feet. I recently spead a few yards of compost & topsoil to level the area out, then topped with seed and straw with very limited results. You know, birds, wind blew straw around and dried out soil, maybe I wasn't a diligent in watering as I should've been. My question is should I spead more seeds and cover it with the compost and straw again - OR - spead the seed and use a seed blanket. The seed blanket runs $10 for 20' or in my case $150!!! 2 yards compost $50, 3 bails straw = $20 What would you do?
