Hydroseeding is the fastest and easiest way to seed a lawn. The seed, fertilizer, hydromulch, tackifier and water are all applied in one fast, easy step. The use of messy straw is eliminated, and trimming is quick and easy. Even difficult-to-seed areas such as hill sides or narrow areas are a breeze to seed with hydroseeding.

Hydroseeding offers many advantages over the traditional process of broadcasting or sowing dry seed. It promotes quick germination and inhibits soil erosion. It is also a very cost effective alternative to sod.

Here are some commonly asked questions about Hydroseeding:

How soon will I have grass?

Often times, hydroseeded lawns will begin to germinate is as little as five to seven days. Most grass types will take three to four weeks to fill in, and depending on how often the lawn is watered and the type of grass seed used, it can take up to as much as eight weeks to see strong growth.

What’s the best time of year to have my lawn hydroseeded?

This will depend greatly on your climate. Traditionally, spring and fall months are the most conducive to growing any type of vegetation.

Is hydroseeding better than sod?

Having your lawn sodded will give you a picture-perfect lawn in as little as one day. Hydroseeding may take a few weeks to fully develop. Hydroseeding is also 60% to 75% less expensive than the costly application of sod. As to which lawn looks better, aftercare and attention to your investment will ultimately determine your results.

Can I walk on the hydroseed once it is applied?

Only as much as is absolutely necessary. Heavy traffic on a newly seeded lawn can permanently damage the new grass. Walking on a freshly hydroseeded lawn can leave depressions in the lawn and in some cases cause bare spots to form.

Will the green stains on my foundation and walkway after my yard was hydroseeded go away?

Absolutely. The green dye that may have splashed onto your foundation or walkways will usually fade away within a few days and can be hosed off with a garden hose.

Why is the green color gone from my hydroseeded lawn?

The green dye that was present during the initial application will fade and disappear in as few as two days in some cases, and in other instances it may last weeks. The colorant has no bearing on the quality of the hydroseed or the impression that the hydroseeded lawn has washed away.
