Hydroseeding is an alternative to hand seeding or sod application. Why should you consider it?
Pressure is applied to the surface for seed germination and turf development.
VERSATILITY & USE
Hydroseeding has become more popular than both hand seeding and for a wide variety of jobsites and applications. There are many uses for soil renovation, including residential lawns, erosion control, hillside stabilization, vegetation restoration, wildfire repair, roadsides, national parks, landfills, city parks, airport dust control, and many other versatile applications. In addition to establishing permanent lawns or landscaping, hydroseeding is sometimes used as a temporary cover for dirt that will be removed eventually. As varied as the jobsites themselves, the seed varieties added to hydroseeding slurry mix add value to hydroseeding. Being able to mix and match different seed blends to fit the needs of the client and job is convenient. Hydroseeding differs from farming in several ways.
This method is more economical than other methods because it can cover large, hard-to-reach areas.
Seed germinates best in hydroseeding because the slurry creates the ideal microenvironment
It stimulates the seeds to grow and improves the seeds’ germination process
In the ground where moisture is greatest, a deep, healthy root system. In comparison to sod, hydroseeding is grown right in your own backyard, so transplant shock and soil adaptation issues are not an issue. Having a hydroseeded yard maintains full growth and prevents disease and weeds.
Hydroseeding slurry combines several different elements to maximize seed germination The hydroseeding process benefits from each of these individual elements. By preventing wind and water erosion, mulch fibers also protect the environment
Protect the surface from sun damage and fluctuating soil temperatures. In the end, mulch fibers provide protection, decomposes and adds nourishment to the soil to enhance the germination process.
Fertilizers with phosphorus content work together with mulch to ensure
Improved pH levels are a result of root growth and soil amendments. A hydroseeded yard will have significantly more grass growth than a traditional hand-seeded yard because hydroseeding provides moisture-retaining mulch that allows undetected seeds to germinate and root more quickly.
Despite the fact that hydroseeding doesn’t have the same “instant lawn” gratification as sod, the factors of cost, quality, coverage, erosion control, and health definitely tip the scales in favor of hydroseeding. This rapid application is achieved without the drawback of outstanding labor costs associated with sod. Hydroseeding is faster and easier to install than sod. When properly hydroseeded and watered, a lawn will start growing in about 7 days, and under normal conditions will be mature and ready to mow in 3-4 weeks. In contrast to other methods of seeding, seed applied in a hydroseed mix will generally grow and develop turf faster than if it were broadcast.
Hydroseeding is a completely safe and non-toxic method of growing grass that is harmless to
kids, pets and the environment.
Hydroseeding has the major advantage of requiring less manpower. If erosion blankets or sod were used in the same amount of time as hydroseeding, it would take six workers to accomplish the same results. Hydroseeding is not only the perfect seeding application to achieve a beautiful lawn for a fraction of the cost and time as sod, but it also requires very little installation labor compared to sod. Hand seeding, in addition to sod-laying, can be even more labor- and physically-intensive, resulting in lumpy, inconsistent results.
