This is a question about my own personal lawn. Its kind of crappy to say the least. Its very rough, got some good patches and a few bad. Got a couple different grass species, and got a whole side yard of crab grass. So I'm thinking about having a guy I know who does hydroseeding tear up the whole yard, put down new loam, and hydroseed it and just start over. My question is this, how perfect of a lawn can you get with hydroseeding? I've seen a couple commercial places get hydro seeded, and the lawn looks like crap now (2 years later) and always has looked awful. My lawn is not very large, but seems to be to big for sodding to be a cost effective option. How long till I can mow if I were to do this to my lawn? And what are the professional opinions of the guys who hydro seed on here? From what I've seen I can expect to pay around 4 dollars a square foot for the whole deal..
