The Benefits of Hydroseeding

Hydroseeding is a cost-effective choice and allows you to have a beautiful lawn. This is the wave of the future, and gives you a healthy lawn with faster germination. It involves a process of seed and mulch that creates a slurry and is spread around the ground.

Quality of Hydroseed

Hydroseed lawns are healthier, longer lasting, and greener than hand seeded or sodded lawns. The root is established deeper in the soil and avoid shock of being in foreign soil. The seeds end up being more resistant to external problems and yield great results the first time it is installed. The soil can hold moisture better than hand seeded or sod types, and seeds can germinate way quicker. Hydroseeding includes far less weed seeds and no layering of the soil. You can also customize the application process of different seeds.

Coverage of Hydroseed

Hydroseeding gives a thicker and more uniform lawn. It consists of a mat of interlocking fibers and creates a mat of interlocking fibers. By creating an evenly covered area, it forms a barrier to keep the seed stabilized and retains moisture and fertilizer. This results in a full and lush lawn. Hydroseeding can cover cover large and inaccessible areas such as slopes. These are usually to hard to sod. Increased plant survival also comes with hydroseeding, so it is great for big spaces like golf courses or roadside erosion control.

Water Retention

Hydroseeding can retain up to 10 times its weight in water, therefore being the best method for fast and healthy germination, as well as high plant survival. No other grass growing method has advantages of hydroseeding when it comes to water retention. Within the mix, fiber mulch and tackifiers are used to hold the mixture and seal in moisture. The water is slowly released to the roots and replenishes until the next time it rains.


Hydroseeding is typically 50-80% less than the price of sod with saving in material costs and installation prices. An average hand-sewn lawn takes about half of a day to install, but hydroseeding can be done within an hour to an hour and a half. While maintaining an even healthier lawn with beautiful results, hydroseeding is the most cost effective choice for your yard.


Hydroseeding is becoming increasingly popular for many different uses. Hillside stabilization, residential lawns, erosion control, wildfire repair, vegetation restoration, roadsides, soil renovations, national parks, city parks, and more. The varieties of seeds in the hydroseeding mix are unique and are different per job site. One main differentiation between hydroseeding and other methods of seeding is the ability to seed large areas economically.
