Most people want a lawn that is covered in healthy, weed-free grass. Hydroseeding is a fantastic way to achieve a lush lawn more effectively than traditional hand seeding or sod applications. But what is it exactly?
Hydroseeding combines grass seed, fertilizer, lime, moisture retention polymers, mulch and water into a mixture that is sprayed onto ground to establish grass growth. This hydroseed mixture is prepared on site to create a fresh and even combination that is sprayed over prepared ground in a uniform layer. Hydroseeding has advantages over traditional seeding with quicker and more uniform seed germination.
Hydroseeding is typically more effective because mulch in the mixture acts as the growth medium for the seed. When the appropriate type and rate of mulch is applied, it provides moisture retention for faster germination, insulation from temperature extremes, contains no weed seed, and sticks to the ground to prevent seeds from blowing away or being eaten by birds or pests.
The Hydroseeding mixture can be adjusted with various additives to create the ideal growth environment for the seed. The other big advantage versus conventional seeding methods is the labor savings. This is because all of the ingredients that you want to apply to the seed bed are combined into the slurry and applied at the same time. The conventional seeding process usually requires each item to be applied one at a time in layers.
