Hydroseeding is the process of spraying a specially mixed slurry comprising of water, seed, mulch, fertilizer plus a binder all in just one operation. It is becoming a popular means of planting grass due to its relative ease of use, cost and effectiveness. Once sprayed, the wet fibre mulch will help create a bond to the soil and provide the seeds with a water retaining blanketing-coat while protecting it from sunlight, wind, and erosion. As the grass seeds begin to germinate, the fibre mulch and fertilizer will slowly decompose adding nutrients to the soil and produce a lush grass in a very short time.
Hydroseeding takes significantly less time to get the job done and at fraction of the cost of sod.
Hydroseeding creates a uniform, continuous mat that covers your lawn. When the young roots take hold they stay in place and mature as strong vigorous plants. When sod matures, the roots are cut and the sod is transplanted to your lawn. What lawn do you think is stronger?
Hydroseeding is not the instant lawn that you get with sod, but with patience you will have a solid, healthy lawn.
Hydroseeding typically takes about 7-14 days to start germinating and by the 4th week you should have to mow for the first time. After that it will get thicker week after week, creating a lawn that neighbors will be envious of.
Can you Hydroseed Existing Lawns?
The great thing about hydroseed is that it is not just for new lawns. Hydroseed can be used to renovate or overseed an existing lawn as well. Homeowners who are not happy with their existing lawn can simply cut the grass short and have hydroseed sprayed right over the existing lawn. It will fill in weak spots and create a healthier overall lawn.
