Hydroseeding is a popular erosion control method that’s both cost effective and practical. Boost the results of your landscaping or construction project when you invest in this tried and true lawn growth tactic.
The process of hydroseeding is a popular erosion control method; essentially, it’s known as a high-quality, inexpensive technique of lawn seeding. Hydroseeding involves a slurry of grass seed, mulch, fertilizer, and water being sprayed evenly across bare soil with a hose or a hydroseeding truck. This erosion control method creates a lush, vibrant, and evenly grown lawn for your commercial location.
There are many avenues for erosion control and achieving luscious, healthy grass, such as sprinkling seeds by hand or laying sod, but hydroseeding is the most effective and efficient. Upholding a positive reputation includes making sure your building’s landscaping needs are a top priority.
A few notable advantages of hydroseeding are:
Hydroseeding is less expensive than laying sod since it’s not as labor-intensive as unrolling and installation. On average, hydroseeding a lawn costs 50 cents to $1 per square foot, with an additional cost for the sprinkler system. The total costs of hydroseeding depends on factors like:
The number of square feet of coverage area
Capacity or size of hydroseeding truck and its tank
The tank’s mixing rate
For fast distribution and fast results, hydroseeding is an excellent choice. The slurry is sprayed over the land in a quick process that only takes half the time of traditional erosion control techniques. The slurry binds to soil instantly, thanks to special bonding compounds called tackifying agents. They help the seeds take root more quickly, so you can expect to see sprouting within three to five days.
Enhances Quality of Project
With hydroseeding, grassroots are embedded into the soil quicker and deeper than sod. Plus, the slurry is evenly distributed, giving your lawn a healthier look and adding curb appeal to the location. The appearance of your company’s lawn won’t have any seams, like sod. Also, the natural growth of grass is highly resistant to disease, and unwanted weeds.
Retains More Moisture
Hydroseed mixture provides incredible moisture. It has the ability to obtain up to 10 times its weight in water. For this reason, it offers the fastest and healthiest seed germination, and requires less maintenance and upkeep than hand-seeded lawns, in terms of irrigation. Expect your company’s lawn to need mowing after three to four weeks, which is significantly quicker than a conventionally seeded lawn.
Hydroseeding is neither toxic nor hazardous. It poses no threat to the environment, wild animals, pets, or children since there is no heavy equipment and no complex equipment. This makes it an incredibly safe erosion control method.
The common objective of hydroseeding is to generate expansive turf or healthy, green grass across a large area. No matter if you’re a business owner building on new land, or if you’re a landscaping contractor aiming to prevent erosion, hydroseeding is beneficial for a variety of agricultural needs and beyond.
With hydroseeding, you can choose whichever blend you want. If your soil is difficult or your area experiences tougher weather conditions, you have the option to choose the blend that best suits your landscape. When you hire professionals, consulting with them leads to a wiser decision of what to include in your slurry.
