    I have a client that needs grass planted on a slope. I plan to use that green mesh that helps hold everything in place. 1) Does anyone know the name of this stuff? I have never used it befor. I assume you just use landscaping pins to hold it in place. 2) Would I need a helper, or can it be handled by one? I need to do about 12,000 sq. ft. feet
    Any info. would be of help.

    Thanks ,

    Wouldn't hydroseeding be faster and easier?

    I would just like to know how steep it is and if your using turf or seed?
    Turf I hope! If turf and its say up to 30' deg, lay the turf across the hill and you shouldnt really need netting. If it does slip, you could just knock in some steaks temporarily every other row until the roots hold then take them out.
    I've layed turf up to about 45' or so. The only problem is when it rains heavily straight after you put it down and the soil turns to mud.
    Good luck with it. Whos going to be mowing it?
