Hydro-seeding is an innovative alternative to sowing dry grass seeds. If you want to reinvigorate your property’s landscape before the winter weather starts, hydro-seeding offers several advantages over traditional grass growing techniques. This technique takes a very different approach to grass planting that offers stellar results as well as some surprising additional benefits.

What Is Hydro-seeding?
Unlike dry sowing, hydro-seeding uses a moistened mixture of grass seed, mulch fibers, fertilizer, and stabilizing emulsifiers. When you purchase - services, your landscaping technician will spray the mixture using hydro-mulching gear to ensure an even distribution. This technique helps to prevent the most common issues that interfere with traditional grass planting techniques, such as wind erosion and runoff from excessive rain. The heavy mixture of wood fibers and fertilizer helps to create a “blanket” that not only encourages faster growth but also keeps them in place while retaining moisture
What Time of Year Is Best for Hydro-seeding?
Fall is one of the best times of the year to plan hydro-seeding for any property. Hydro-seeding during the fall means the slurry mixture will require less water, and a hydro-seeded lawn should start showing results within just one week. While the lawn may appear a bit thin during the end of the fall, planting at this time helps ensure a vibrant, lush lawn for the following spring. It will look even better the following spring once the lawn has had more time to establish itself.
