Well....If they don't water to keep it moist, it ain't gonna matter if the straw blows away, right?
I am a huge Penn mulch fan but straw blanket just yields better results from what I have experienced.
If the area has dead lawn / thatch use that as mulch, the use the Grass Stitcher (www.grassstitcher.com) poke hole through the dead thatch apply seed and water. You will get great soil/ seed contact - the seed will find its way into the soil where it will stay and germinate.
I see you are a sponsor and respect that. Wondering if anyone on here has used the Grass Stitcher? can you point me to other threads about it? I have some spots to seed...

Although if you put in Grass Stitcher in the search above you'll see all the posts.
You can also go to www.grassstitcher.com and see reviews.

I seed grass in large windy areas and blow straw on top to hold the moisture in. Many times the straw will blow away. Are there any ways to hold the straw in place? Is there a tack that you can spray on top of the straw to hold it? Or should I look into getting a straw crimper? Do crimpers work well? Thanks for any help.
In my area when the city dug up to put in sidewalks--they covered the straw with a netting with about 2 inch openings. It was very thin plastic mesh. They said--no need to remove. The grass grew OK if it was watered.
Here is another random link.
+1 for the straw mulch blanket staked in. FYI straw doesn't contain much weed seed. Straw is typically from wheat crop, farmers heavily treat cropland for weeds, so there are few.
I doubt though much of the seed blew away, its probably just waiting on moisture and temperature conditions.
How did it come out original poster?
