Hydroseeding is fast, efficient, and economical. This grass planting process is usually more effective than conventional seeding, and certainly more economical than conventional sodding.
The process begins by mixing mulch, seed, fertilizer, and water in the tank of a hydromulching machine. The mixed material is then pumped from the tank and sprayed onto the ground. The material is often referred to as a slurry, much like a soupy batch of green papier-mâché. Once applied to the soil, the material enhances initial growth by providing a micro-environment beneficial to seed germination.
Instructions on caring for your new hydroseeded lawn are provided as a PDF downloadable file further down the page.
Many construction sites have depleted soils with low organic matter that require more than just fertilizer and other amendments to establish sustainable vegetation. Placing costly imported topsoil over depleted soils has historically been the preferred option to establish vegetation.
Hydroseeding Solutions uses
ProGanics™ Biotic Soil Media™ (BSM™) in place of topsoil on challenging and difficult-to-access sites, which will not only save money and time, but will also provide a growing medium that helps establish vegetation.
Hydroseeding Solutions now offers silt fence installation for residential and commercial clients. You can expect to receive the same first class level of quality and professional service that we pride ourselves on!
We are often asked questions about the services we provide and how they benefit our customers. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions and our responses. We hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to drop us a line with any questions you have!
What is Hydroseeding?
Hydroseeding is the simple procedure of applying grass seed, fertilizer, hydromulch and water in one liquefied application.
How much does Hydroseeding cost?
Hydroseeding prices will vary greatly. Conditions such as grass type, soil additives, slopes, and access are some of the factors that will affect cost.
What type of grass seed is used in Hydroseeding?
Just about any type of grass seed can be used in Hydroseeding. Unfortunately, St. Augustine cannot. It depends on the area(s) of application (sunny or shady for example) in determining the grass type.
Why is the green/blue color gone from my hydroseeded lawn?
The green/blue dye will fade and disappear after a day in some cases, and in other instances it may last for a week. The colorant has no bearing on the quality of the hydroseed or the impression that the hydroseeded lawn has washed away.
Will the green/blue stains on the surrounding concrete go away?
Yes. The dye that may have splashed onto foundation or walkways will usually fade away within a few days and can be hosed off with a garden hose.
How much to water after hydroseeding?
Initially water is essential to the development of a strong root system. Newly hydroseeded areas should be watered as much as 2-3 times a day. Special care should be taken to ensure that the area is NOT saturated during watering and puddles DO NOT form. An irrigation system is often the best method of watering. The goal is to have a consistently moist area for the best germination results.
Can I walk on the hydroseed once it is applied?
Only as much as is absolutely necessary. Heavy traffic on a newly seeded area can permanently damage the new grass. It can leave depressions and in some cases cause bare spots to form.
Is Hydroseeding guaranteed?
Hydroseeding Solutions will stand by all of our work. Incidents such as torrential rains, hurricanes, or other acts of nature are beyond our control and often not covered. A common problem in the development of new growth is neglect (i.e. not watering the property sufficiently will cause the yard to appear spotty and incomplete).
Is Hydroseeding better than sod?
Hydroseeding is considerably less expensive than the costly application of sod, and the process is better overall for the environment (visit our Services Page for a description). Ultimately, attention to your investment will determine what your results are with either choice.
Does a soils test need to be done before hydroseeding?
We recommend a soils test as an important tool in evaluating your soil requirements.
