How to Reduce the Amount of Water for Turf Grass

Hydroseeding vs SodEverybody always wants to bring dirt into their yard and they want to fill up, say the back of their yard with dirt and then it chases water towards the house. That is not what you want. You actually want to build up dirt around the house and if you have to build what’s known as an inverted retaining wall and then run a French drain on the outside of your house as a curtain French drain, not very much water is going to get in that anyway. But here is the catch. Make sure you seed it. Just go ahead and seed it and put straw down or hydroseed it because seed takes 10 times less water than sod.

Until that next video.
