This is an area at the very front of my property that I'm having some erosion problems with. I've filled it in with top soil & re-seeded twice now only to have 2 torrential downpours about a week apart wipe out my work. I can't help but feel if I could get 10-14 days of little or even moderate rain it would stay in place long enough to germinate & I'd be good to go. So my question is am I doing this right? I've installed some edging to re-direct some of the water & I have the blanket tacked down pretty good. I don't want to sod as I'm trying to match the existing seed I already have. Is there something else I need to be doing?
