    im leveling part of a backyard for a cust...they then want it hydroseeded, but how do we match up the seed to match the existing grass?...

    im will be subing out the hydroseed job but my ? is more to the point of how well will it match up? guessing it takes a year or so to blend in

    Well, for a perfect match you'd need to know the type, variety, and specific lot #. But for most folks, just knowing the type should do it. If you can find out what name varieties are there, do so (Midnight KBG, etc).
