We are in the midst of building a house and am trying to plan the grass part. At the end of the project there will probably be about 6-10 acres of grass to plant (depending on tree removal), whether it be seed, hydroseed. My questions are as follows: What is best method to actually plant? seed or hydroseed What kind of grass would be the best for this size property? And how would you actually apply it, ie aplication method? Some helpful tips: Let's assume cost is not a parameter in deciding b/t seed or hydroseed. If hydroseed is best, I would be open to purchasing my own machine, doing the work, and selling it afterwards. I don't plan on having any in ground irrigation available. However, a water truck would be available to get the grass started. The location is in South Louisiana and the property has equal amounts of shade and sunlight. Any soil preparation or spading/grading tips would be appreciated. Thanks for your help.
