Hydroseeding can grow grass most anywhere...
Advantages over dry seeding
1. Hydroseeded lawns come up faster. The contact of the seed with water will trigger the germination cycle. We often hear of grass up in 3 to 5 days.
2. Hydro seeding has an attractive green appearance that looks far better than lawns dry seeded and covered with straw mulch. Unlike straw that is often used as a protective cover for a newly seeded area, hydroseeding mulch has NO weed seed. Straw is loaded with weed seed.
3. Hydroseeding allows the custom tayloring of the proper seed for your job. It is not uncommon to use two or even three seeds custom spraying the right seed for different areas on the lawn or job. Many contractors will use one seed for shady areas, one for high traffic areas, one to make the front lawn a showpiece.
4. Hydro Seeding mulch adds to the humus content of a lawn as it decomposes. The bacterial action of straw will leach nitrogen from the soil as it decomposes.
Advantages over sod
1. Sod is a good solution to the need for a new lawn. It is expensive. Sod generally costs 3 to 5 times more than hydroseeding. Hydroseeding will often produce turf as nice looking as sod within a very short time at a significant cost savings.
2. With hydroseeding the new seedlings are grown on your soil. Sod can have a problem with the type of soil it was grown on, not having sufficient compatibility with the soil it is planted on. This is called "not taking". If you have ever seen sod that looks like it could be rolled right back up
even years after it was planted, that is sod that did not take.
3. With sod the roots are chopped off resulting in a less healthy plant.
Sod requires a lot of care. It can produce a beautiful lawn. Should you decide to use sod, or as some people do, decide to sod the front lawn, and hydroseed the back lawn, ask about the watering and fertilizing steps you need to follow to insure that you have a successful and beautiful new lawn.
