Restore Lawns and Prevent Erosion with the Right Hydroseeding Products
Lawn hydroseed is a specialized slurry often consisting of grass seeds, mulch, water, fertilizer, and biostimulants. The mixture can also contain green-tinted dye in some varieties, ensuring your lawn gives off an attractive green hue.
There are plenty of positive benefits of trying your hand at hydroseeding this season. Check out some advantages below!
- Achieves a more uniformed, attractive look sans the seams and patches caused by sod and traditional seeding
- More efficient compared to traditional seeding
- More affordable than laying sod
- Customize seed blends
- Quick grass germination
- Results in healthier, nutrient-rich lawns
Lawn Hydroseeding: The Basics
To hydroseed a lawn or large piece of grassy land, you typically take the slurry and apply it to the intended surface with high pressure. Agitating the mixture with the help of an equipment piece called a hydroseeder tank ensures the slurry remains evenly combined for proper distribution onto the lawn. Using heavy-duty, professional-grade equipment is also a productive way to hydroseed other kinds of areas besides grass.
By spraying the intended area with this slurry, the chances of erosion decrease due to the rapid time of seed germination. With hydroseeding, sprouting can occur in just 1 to 2 weeks for best-case scenarios and new lawns!
What is Hydroseeding Used For?
There are various things that hydroseeding helps achieve, along with ideal scenarios in which you should consider using the lawn care technique.
- Revives lawns
- Strengthens topsoil
- Great for large areas and slopes
- Protects against soil erosion from wind, pests, or water
- Eliminates unwanted weed growth
- Perfect for commercial applications like athletic fields and recreational parks
Although this technique is excellent for numerous applications, we recommend hydroseeding in the spring and fall seasons due to the moist and cool environment that encourages seed growth. It’s also strongly encouraged to perform a soil test, regardless of season and project, to ensure that you’re choosing the right grass seeding. Confirming the type of soil pH will help you adjust your seeding mulch mixture.
