Hi Mr. Smarty Pants. My front "yard" is about 2 1/2 sloping acres with a wet weather creek at the bottom. It has been recently cleared of cedar. The cedar is now shredded and acts as a cover to help with erosion. There are springs running through the hill as well, but only when the creek is full. So far this year - not to worry. I was hoping to seed it with turffalo. Plugging would not work for my budget. Would another type of grass be better? Now that the cedar is gone, there are oaks lining the creek with the rest unshaded. I'm also planning to seed the lower portion with various native wildflowers. Any ideas you have would be much appreciated!
