Q: We are in the process of re-landscaping our yard which is approximately an acre +/-. We had truckloads of dirt and topsoil brought in and are getting ready for grass. Is hydroseeding fescue appropriate? If so, when is the best time?
A: December is a bad time to plant fescue. Your next opportunity is in late March. Hydroseeding is best for large or steep areas or If you choose to hydroseed, the thin layer of mulch slurry will protect the seed better than if you seed by hand. You’ll get a more even application of seed as well.
