Hydroseeding grass seed is often used to
economically seed large areas of lawns, especially on commercial
projects. It is use extensively by commercial grassing contractors, for planting large areas and in areas
(such as slopes) where normal planting methods may not be easily accomplished.
Hydroseeding Grass Seed
Hydroseeding has recently gained favor for planting of
lawns for homeowners, though culti-packer type applications still can accomplish as good or
better seeding results.
Hydro is not an inexpensive method of planting. With
hydro seeding, you will need a specialized equipment to seed. A mixture of seed and
mulch is placed in a container of water, and the resulting slurry mixture is sprayed
(blown) on the prepared lawn area to be planted.
The advantage of this method is that
the slurry material supposedly absorbs water and allows this storage of water to be
available to the seed that is in contact with the material. Seeds need water to
start the germination process. Hydroseeding experts say that the seeds germinate
better than with methods which use the more conventional "culti-packer / roller"
Fertilizers can also be applied using the hydroseeding
method at the same time as the seeds are planted. A cover crop of millet or ryegrass can
also be applied in the mixture to give a fast germinating ground cover until the grass you
are planting becomes established. This method is only recommended for use during the
growing season of your particular grass species.
a beautiful tomorrow!®
