Seedy sea of green?

Can a sea of green garden be grown with seeds or do I need clones?
Jason Muise,

The concept of a sea of green garden is that the space gets filled quickly using a lot of plants which each have to grow just a little to fill the canopy. The alternative is fewer plants which each have to grow larger to fill the space. The sea of green garden is filled much faster.

The problem with growing unsexed plants in a sea of green is the same as with any unsexed garden, compounded by the number of plants. One undetected male can mess up the garden. Since there are so many plants the chances of a sneaky male going undetected are much greater. It would be preferable to avoid starting with seeds if that is possible.
