Hydroseeding (hydraulic mulch seeding, hydro-mulching, hydraseeding) is a planting process that uses a slurry of seed and mulch. The slurry is transported in a tank, either truck or trailer mounted, and then sprayed over prepared ground.
Knowing the Costs
Before calling Bill's Hydroseed
, you may be wondering whether the process is affordable. In fact, hydroseeding costs only a little more than old-fashioned methods using dry seeding techniques combined with messy straw mulch. The cost to have your new lawn hydroseeded is less than one-fourth of the cost of using sod, and in a few weeks you will have a better-appearing lawn with no need to worry whether the sod will take.
The Many Advantages1.
Hydroseeding Can Be Completed in a Very Short Time, Even If You're Planting a Large Area2.
The Process Can Be Very Effective for Hillsides & Sloping Lawns to Help with Erosion Control & Quick Planting3.
Hydroseeding Typically Costs Less Than Planting with Sod, but More than Regular Seeding4.
The results are often faster with high germination rates producing grass growth in about a week and mowing maintenance beginning around three to
four weeks from the application date. Fiber mulch accelerates the process because it maintains the moisture around the seeds, thus increasing the
Why Pick Hydroseeding over Other Methods?
Water Retention – Hydroseed Mulch Can Retain up to 10 Times Its Weight in Water, Seeds are Moist, Giving You Thicker Grass Faster
Soil Retention – The Mulch Helps Prevent Wind & Water Erosion Because It Takes Root Much Faster & Has a Better Root System
Protection – The Mulch Can Form an Almost Perfect Environment, Thus It Protects Young Seeds from the Hot Sun & Maintains a Proper Soil Temperature
