Our finish grade and hydroseeding method:
- Strip the entire landscape to remove all old growth and grass.
- Spread two inches of screened loam over newly prepped areas.
- Lime and starter fertilizer are applied to condition the soil.
- Spray the area with hydroseed mixture.
The hydro seed mixture is seed, hydro mulch (recycled post-consumer paper), tackifier and water. Tackifier is a glue-like substance that allows the ingredients to adhere to one another when applied. This method is a simple single-step process and is the most cost effective method. Seed can be customized for individual applications such as shaded or sunny areas etc.
Sod is an excellent source for the customers who want an instant lawn. The sod is grown off site at a sod farm and simply cut and installed on the finish-graded site. The sod then is watered heavily to allow the grass roots to establish themselves at the new site. The initial appearance is perfect and the weed content is very low. Sod costs more than hydro seed simply due to it being the finished product and more labor intensive.
