FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The hydroseeding slurry contains a tackifier which, when mixed with the mulch, forms a barrier to keep everything in place. It will stabilize the seed to allow it to take in the moisture, fertilizer and amendments it needs to grow quickly. The mulch fiber helps to reduce erosion from wind and water. It also insulates the soil from temperature fluctuation, eventually breaking down and providing the soil with extra nutrients and organic matter to grow to its highest potential.
Hydroseeding is a quicker and easier alternative to traditional hand seeding methods. Grass seed stays in constant contact with the moisture in the mulch of the hydroseed slurry which helps speed up seed germination time. The mulch also creates a protective layer over the seed, creating a greenhouse effect, contributing to a higher percentage of seed being germinated. Leaving you with a thick, even lawn.
It’s important to give the seed the best foundation available. Remove existing grass and weeds where possible. If using top soil, make sure there is at least 4 inches of topsoil leveled and raked. Be sure the surface is free of any debris, large rocks, leaves and sticks.
A properly hydroseeded lawn should show results in as little as 10 days to 2 weeks, depending on watering and/or rainfall. The lawn should be ready for the first cut in 4 to 6 weeks. This is only a guideline and soil moisture and environmental conditions will dictate the actual length of grass establishment.
