    So i have a lawn where i was thinking just rip it out add some soil and hydro seed. but what if i were to just add soil where needed scalp the current lawn and then hydro seed over that after raking it over with a power thatch rake? Whats your take for all the guys that do this a bit more often. I have only done lawns on new construction and never an existing lawn. Thanks in advance for your help

    Airate, dethatch, topdress, seed, starter fret. Done this many times. Works good. Most guys that hydroseed have a minium price. Not worth it if its a small area.
