GreenPoint Landscaping offers another turf solution service called Hydro-Seeding. Hydro-seeding is the seeding process that combines water, seed, wood/paper mulch and fertilizer. This mixer is mechanically agitated in the hydro-seeder and then sprayed over the prepared soil surface.
Hydro-seeding is a more effective and desirable method of seeding as opposed to tradition methods for a number of reasons:
- Faster Germination. The seed and fiber mixer that is applied to the soil surface is a wet application. In order for a seed to germinate it needs constant moisture. Being wet "out of the gate" so to speak greatly contributes to this germination process. In addition to this, the fiber that is used, holds moisture far better than alternatives such as straw.
- Even Distribution & Adherence. If sprayed properly the seed mixture will evenly cover the prepared surface. The pressure of the water will push the seed into the dirt giving it a far better chance of germinating. The fiber blend will adhere to the grounds surface which will hold the seed intact, keeping washout at a minimum. This is especially helpful on a steep hill or an embankment where tradition straw methods would be very ineffective.
- Aesthetically better than straw. Straw takes many, many months to break down and is unattractive in the mean time. The fiber material used in hydro-seeding is fine and hardly visible especially when the grass seed germinates.
- Cost Effective. If your looking for instant gratification you would go with sod as opposed to hydro-seeding. But lets be realistic. Sodding a large area like an acre or more would be un-affordable for most homeowners. Hydro-seeding gives the ability to seed very large areas for a fraction of the cost of sod and still delivers an attractive and functional lawn in the end.
