What is Hydroseeding?
Hydroseeding is when we combine wood mulch, grass seed, fertilizer, tackifire (a bonding agent), and water into a large tank. These materials are mixed together by engaging the augers. Then we spray this mixture onto your prepared soil.

How fast does hydroseeding grow?
You will begin to see blades of grass emerge from the soil in 7 to 10 days. At the 4 to 5 week stage the grass is 3 to 4 inches tall, and ready for its first mowing. The grass is then to be mowed each week thereafter. At 7 to 8 weeks the grass is completely established and ready for any type of activity. (Results vary depending on weather, soil and prep quality, and watering schedule.)

How often do I water hydroseed?
For the first 3 to 4 weeks you will need to water 3 to 4 times a day for about 10 to 15 minutes each time. Amounts vary depending on water pressure, types of sprinklers, soil type, and weather. After the first month you will then cut back the water and train your roots to go deeper into the soil.

What's the best time of year to hydroseed?
Anytime is a good time to plant your lawn. Different seasons offer different advantages. Hydroseeding in the spring and fall requires less water than in the summer months. However, in the heat of the summer the grass will germinate and grow faster. Ideal temperature for hydroseeding is 75-85 degrees for the first 5 to 6 weeks. Extreme heat or cold can lead to unique challenges, call for more details. 

What type of prep should I do before hydroseeding?
You need to get all the weeds and bigger rocks out. Any rock bigger than the size of an egg should be removed. For best results, spray the weeds with round-up, give them one week to die, then till your soil and remove the rocks and dead weeds at the same time. If you till without killing the weeds, you will leave the live root system in the ground, allowing it to re-emerge quickly. If you have rocky or clay based soil it is recommended to bring in good top soil. It's much wiser to pay a little extra for good top soil and have a healthy lawn, rather than planting in poor soil and spending a greater amount of money on fertilizers to try to make it look good. It is also recommended to have 2 to 4 inches of soft/lose soil on the surface allowing the grass to easily establish a deep root system. The better you prep, the better your lawn is going to look. For more descriptive details, view our "Preparing for Hydroseed" page.

Do I have to have a sprinkler system to hydroseed?
No, however we highly recommend one. You can water it by hand, but it just requires a lot of time and effort. If you are going to be watering by hand, we recommend hydroseeding in the spring or fall.
