Create a Beautiful Yard with Hydroseeding: How to Get a Lush and Low-Maintenance Lawn
Hydroseeding has clear advantages for planting lawns for homeowners and landscapers. It’s easy to apply, effective, and can produce a huge lawn in no time. Professional services usually provide all the necessary supplies for the job and there are a vast array of different seeds and fertilizers available to use. The mixture that’s sprayed on is a special combination of water, seeds, fertilizer, cellulose fiber or wood mulch, and soil treatment agents. The mulch creates a protective layer for the seeds, which quickly germinate and get to work.
As the mulch starts breaking down, it releases a wide range of beneficial nutrients and absorbs sunlight, wind, and soil erosion—all of which help your lawn grow faster and last longer. Once the slurry is sprayed evenly over the lawn, you’ll be able to achieve a deep root system and a lovely even leaf-stock pattern, with a gorgeous and healthy dark green color. Hydroseeding is also useful for erosion control on large areas, such as forest fire restore sites.
As always, it’s wise to do a bit of research before getting any hydroseeding supplies. Some companies charge differently for different types of seed and fertilizer, and you want to make sure you get the best quality for the best price. Also, make sure you prepare the soil properly with a rototiller before spraying and follow any instructions given by your hydroseeding company.
Once your hydraulically-mulched lawn is established, it’s important to keep it watered regularly for the first couple of weeks. Moisture is key for the seeds’ continued success, so two to three waterings per day will do the trick. And as soon as your grass hits three inches, you can go ahead and mow it. Avoid walking on the lawn and keep pets and pests away with their waste out of the picture, and you are on track for the perfect lawn.
Lastly, hydroseeding is incredibly cost-effective, since the process involves very few additional costs like weeding, palletizing, and shipping. The mulch breaks down and blends in with the soil, leaving you with a lush and abundant lawn that can be enjoyed for years to come. So, for anyone who wants an easy and budget-friendly option for having a lush and beautiful lawn, try hydroseeding!
