A Closer Look At The Advantages Of Hydroseeding Your Yard

Your green grass is looking a little patchy lately and you know that sowing it with grass seed is a chore that is in your near future. When you start researching the best ways to place grass seed, you are bound to come across the idea of hydroseeding. Hydroseeding involves distributing the seeds as part of a slurried mixture of liquid and then covering it with ulch. While this may sound like a lot of work when you could simply distribute the seed yourself by hand in the traditional dry manner, hydroseeding is definitely the better option. Here's a look at some of the advantages you can reap with hydroseeding your yard:

Hydroseeding yields more effective, more consistent results. 

When you have your yard hydroseeded, you will not have to be concerned about only certain areas of the seed growing, which is a common problem with traditional broadcast seeding methods. This is because the grass seed that is placed is more likely to stay put so it can germinate thanks to the moisture and mulch used in the hydroseeding process. Through traditional methods, a quick bout of rain after spreading the seed and have it washed to one area. This is not a problem with hydroseeding, so you see a more even result once the grass starts to grow.

Hydroseeding your lawn means it will start to grow quicker. 

When you go through the trouble of spreading grass seed on your yard, you will be anxiously anticipating the day when it finally starts to grow and your yard looks more full, which can take a while. However, with hydroseeding, every seed is given everything it needs to start the germination process right from the start. The moisture used helps to embed the seed in the soil for nutrition, but also encourages the seed to start sprouting at a faster pace. 

Hydroseeding allows you easy visibility of where you have laid the grass seed. 

When you distribute seed on your yard in a traditional way, whether it is with a seed spreader, or by hand, you spend a lot of time guessing where the seed actually landed. Grass seed is so small, it tends to get lost in the blades of grass ad can be difficult to determine where you spread seed and where you did not. During the hudroseeding process, the sewn areas are actually covered in a thin layer of chopped much right after, so there is no guesswork involved.
