Hydro-mulching, sometimes referred to as hydroseeding, is a grass
planting process. This grass planting process is fast, efficient, and
economical. This method is frequently more effective than conventional
seeding and more economical than conventional sodding. It begins by
mixing mulch, seed, fertilizer, and water in a tank. Then the material
is pumped from the tank and sprayed onto the ground. The mixed material
is often referred to as a slurry, and looks very similar to green paper
Once applied to the soil, the material enhances initial growth by providing an environment beneficial to seed germination.
A good mulch application will reduce
moisture evaporation from the soil. Grass seed needs soil moisture to
germinate and grow, and that moisture must come from either irrigation
or rainfall. Poor growth is almost always due to lack of water.
Hydro-mulching is best suited for large areas where sodding may be cost
prohibitive. Large acreage properties or commercial projects often call
for the use of hydro-mulch for turf establishment. You more than likely
have seen the use of hydro-mulching along road ways during highway
Without adequate irrigation, the establishment time and coverage will
vary significantly. To ensure quality turf, propering watering is
essential. An in-ground irrigation system makes the application of water
much easier and more efficient.
Warm and moist conditions promote faster seed germination. Seed bed
conditions determine growth rates after germination. When all the
conditions are favorable, grass may require mowing and have excellent
coverage in about four to eight weeks. During less favorable
circumstances, a good stand of grass can take many months, or even up to
a year, to become established.
Most new construction sites need new grass. These include housing and
business facilities. Highway construction and other land development
areas need new grass. Grass is necessary to provide erosion and soil
control. If your project calls for the establishment of turf let SIMS
GRASS help you with the option that best suits your needs and budget.
Each method has its advantages and disadvantages. Seeding without the
protection of mulch is usually less expensive than hydro-mulching, so it
may be the method of choice due to budget constraints. However, the
results will almost always be less dependable. Sodding will provide
solid coverage of grass immediately. This is the best method for the
establishment of a turf. Hydromulching can provide a full coverage of
grass in six to eight weeks. The cost of hydro-mulching falls between
that of seeding and sodding.
