Hydroseeding is a fast, cost effective way to establish a new lawn, or to rejuvenate an existing lawn that is in need of restoration. While people often think of hydroseeding as applicable to banks along a highway, or other slope situations, it provides many advantages for basic lawns as well.The process involves creating a slurry comprised of seed and a biodegradable mulch. This is sprayed onto the prepared lawn surface, providing the following advantages:
- The seed is more firmly established in the soil, resulting in a higher germination rate and better protection from birds.
- The seed starts growing immediately, and protected by mulch, is less prone to drying out from wind, and erosion. A hydroseeded lawn becomes established much sooner than a hand-seeded lawn, giving you a faster result, but also less time to be subject to dry spells or erosion-causing rain squalls.
- Hydroseeding mulch adds to the humus content of a lawn as it decomposes.
- The mulch has a green dye which, in addition to being more attractive than bare soil or straw mulch, while your lawn emerges, also provides evidence of the evenness of application.
