What is hydroseeding?
It involves mixing together grass seed, fertilizer, mulch and water in a tank to make a slurry which is then sprayed onto a growing surface. This helps the grass to grow faster, healthier and longer lasting.
When it comes to the advantages of hydroseeding, it’s difficult to know where to begin, because there are so many of them.
Untamed weed growth tarnishes the beauty of your lawn. It also destroys the soil, making it loose and causing soil erosion. Using a mixture of hydro seeds reduces the growth of weeds as the mixture is free from weed seeds.
Hydroseeding – A cost-effective solution
It is more cost efficient as compared to hand seeding. While an average hand-sewn lawn may take half a day, the same area can be hydroseeded within an hour and a half with assistance from our professional team at AC Yard Services.
Since mulch is present in significant proportion in the slurry mixture, Hydroseed grass is able to retain more moisture than grass sewn through any other conventional technique. Due to its incredible water retaining capacity, the watering needs for hydro seeds are about half as frequent as compared to other methods.
Quality and Erosion Control
Hydroseeded lawns are healthier, greener and are more resistant to foreign agents. They have deeper root establishments, with greater water content and help in erosion control.
When to Hydroseed?
When it comes to hydroseeding every season has its pros and cons, but experts suggest that the best time to hydroseed is during late summer or early fall as temperatures continue to drop and the precipitation increases which means you don’t need much water to hydroseed. The ideal temperature during the initial phase of hydroseeding is between 65 and 75 degrees which makes fall the perfect season for hydroseeding.
