This hydroseeding process speeds up the seeding process and allows our technicians to get your yard back to its former glory without the wait!
Hydroseeding is a planting process that uses a slurry of seed and mulch. It is often used as an erosion control technique, as an alternative to broadcasting or sowing dry seed. Hydroseeding has many benefits over traditional methods of seed planting. It is faster, uses less water, and provides better coverage.
The origins of seed mulching date back to the 1940s in the United States. Maurice Mandell, from the Connecticut Highway Department, discovered that by mixing seed and water together, the resulting mulch could be spread and sprayed over steep and inaccessible slopes of expressways in Connecticut.
Hydro-seeding is a great option if you're looking to cover a large area in a short amount of time. It's especially effective for planting on hillsides or sloped lawns and can help with erosion control and quick germination rates. Hydro-seeding will typically cost less than planting with sod, but more than broadcast seeding. Results are often quick, with high germination rates producing grass growth in about a week and mowing maintenance beginning around 3 to 4 weeks from the date of application. Fiber mulch accelerates the growing process by maintaining moisture around the seeds, thereby increasing the rate of germination.
