    I'm getting ready to overseed my yard (on a hill) again. The last time I did it $70 worth of grass seed went down the hill and gave my neighbor at the bottom of the hill a very pretty yard

    What can I put over the seed to help stop it from ending up at the bottom of the hill?

    Whatever you do dont water it or down the hill it goes
    Tyr hand watering it tell it comes up a very light mist.
    You can put a light mist of grass clipings on it .
    Just dont pit the fire hose on it.
    buy allready grown grass

    Have the area areated. That will make many holes in the area, then seed and rake the area to cover the seed.

    Hope this link works. Greenscapes seed germination blanket. Great for seeding hills and slopes.

    Scrape the dirt with a dirt rake or aeriate as suggested. Throw hay over the seed.

    My dear little wife had taken to a fitness regime of walking around the block.

    All it took was a suggestion that she walk around the lawn instead, and now, I just keep the mower maintained.

    take an old garden hose and lay it across the hill before you seed. you'll have stripes, but it'll stick.

    come back in a couple weeks and fill in the stripes.

    Mid... just throw any old kind of seed on your hill there buddy.. it will grow. I hear that dandylions are great, crabgrass and kudzu will hold that hill.

    When it rains you have to put on your little bathing suit, run outside and make sure each seed is picked up and placed back on that there hill. You can do it buddy, we all have faith in ya.
