What is Hydroseeding?
It is a process of mixing seed, fertilizer, tackifier and paper fiber mulch with water in
correct proportions inside a tank. Then spraying the mixture onto designated lawn
areas. Hydroseeding can be used in new construction projects as well as repairing or
replacing old lawns. Hydroseeding is fast and a less costly alternative to sodding
There are reasons hydroseeding works so well. The seed is suspended in a nutrient rich
slurry. The contact of the seed with the water in the machine triggers the germination
cycle. The mulch layer seals in the moisture, holds the soil in place and acts like a
mini-greenhouse effect. The seed is at an ideal depth for good results. The conditions
are right to produce a lush green lawn in a very short time.
After hydroseeding, your property will have a nice green appearance from the mulch in
the spray mix. The grass should begin to come up in 5 to 7 days depending on soil
temperatures and moisture. Your lawn should be ready to mow in 3 to 4 weeks.
