I'm about to re-do my lawn. Rototill the whole thing and plant new seed in fresh dirt. One concern I have with that is erosion. If we get a big rainfall, I expect that heavy rain could wash my new top soil away in a section of the lawn with a decent pitch. I've been told two fixes are:
1.) plant rye grass - which due to is quick germination can give me a quick route to stabilized soil.
2.) put a mesh/net over the sections that have inclines.
What do you guys think? How does the mesh thing work? How do I attach it. Would straw go over it, or under it?
