    For the folks in Florida, how popular is hydroseeding down there? Do you think that would be a profitable service to offer for a LMO? Did a search and found few references to hydroseeding in Florida. Anyone? Thanks.

    I don't recall ever seeing any hydroseeding in my neck of the woods. I believe it is due to the rain. When it rains, it pours buckets and erosion can be a major problem. Also, St. Augustine is the only grass you will find in the upscale areas, and that type of seed is not available for purchase.

    Down in south florida I think all that is seeded is Bahia, a lower quality lawn. I don't know if they even hydroseed that but I would assume it would mostly be roadside work.

    In northwest Florida you only see it on road work and some commercial aps. where lawn quality is not a factor. St. Augustine can't be seeded and centipede is somewhat pricey. Bahia is probably most common along with winter rye. Sod is king around here.
