If you’re like many people, you want your lawn to appear healthy and lush. However, you may not know about the different techniques designed to help keep your lawn looking great all year long. Hydroseeding is an example of one of the best ways to develop your turf.
What Is Hydroseeding?
Also known as hydraulic mulch seeding, hydroseeding is a planting process that involves using a combination of seed, fertilizer, mulch, and healthy soil to grow grass and reduce erosion. It is one of the fastest and most cost-effective strategies for achieving and maintaining a healthy lawn all year round.
How Does It Work?
A combination of mulch and moisture work together to shield your seeds from wind, soil erosion, and sunlight. The mixture used in hydromulch grass releases a variety of nutrients designed to help your seeds thrive.
What Are the Benefits?
The process of spraying during the planting phase means that a healthy lawn can be planted on almost any kind of surface. Even if the land is uneven or has a slope, grass can grow quickly and thrive with this technique. You can also easily fill in patchy areas by simply respraying the mixture over the affected area. An additional benefit is that hydroseeding helps reduce the presence of weeds in your lawn.
How Do I Care for My New Lawn?
During the first couple of weeks after the spraying is over, it’s important to keep the mulch wet at all times. This will help promote the growth of a healthy lawn. Two or three light sprinkles with water each day should be fine. Then, you can reduce to only one or two sprinkles for the next couple of weeks after that. You’ll just want to be careful not to allow puddles to form on the lawn.
