Many Applications Where Hydroseeding Will Excel
IS HYDROSEEDING THE ROUTE TO GO OR NOT?
Hydroseeding is more cost-effective when trying to establish new grass in an open lot like a new build home or open space with no existing grass vs installing sod roll by roll.
When hydroseed is mixed, it is mixed on-site prior to spraying to ensure what is applied will stick and will grow based on the amount of shade, steepness of the terrain, and more.
Planned or existing irrigation system.
Hydroseed over the long term requires little to no maintenance once the seed is established. Depending on where you get sod and if you know what type of sod to pick out… sod is primarily sun-grown. Meaning if you place a sun-grown sod in a shaded area it will over time the quality will decrease easily, depending on the amount of shade, if it is treated with seed and or fertilizer.
Hydroseed works excellently on steep hillsides, banks or areas prone to eroding.
The overall time of hydroseeding installation and prep is a lot faster than sod and is not as messy.
Even tho hydroseeding is used primarily to grow grass in an open non-existing grass area, hydroseed can be sprayed over existing grass to fill in bare spots where the grass is dying off or has died off and now it is bare soil
Ok - good -and- great soil conditions
Soil prep is tedious as the first 1-2 top inches of soil need to be loose for roots to develop.
The first couple of weeks are critical - needs watering multiple times a day (depending on the time of year), fertilization, and low to no traffic.
