Fast, Friendly, Professional Service


What is Hydroseeding?

Hydroseeding is a process where seed, water, specially designed fertilizer, tackifier (glue) and wood and paper fiber mulch are mixed together and applied over the ground at an even rate of application. In one application, the ground is seeded, fertilized and watered.
How long does the process take?

We can cover if all conditions are right about 6,000-16,000 square feet an hour. The rate of application depends on the amount of water we have on site to mix the slurry and apply the slurry.

What type of seed do we use?

We have access to any type of seed you are interested in. The most common seed type used in this area by homeowners is Bermuda and Centipede with Zoysia gaining in popularity.  In the northern areas of the CSRA we can plant Fescue grasses, but most of our area can support only the warm season grasses that are commonly grown in our area.  For slopes, low maintenance areas, naturalized areas, and erosion problem areas we can use Low Maintenance Mix, which is a mixture of Brown Top Millet and Bermuda grasses. Greener Days enjoys establishing wildflower gardens as well.  We use only the highest quality certified seed blends available to ensure your lawn fills in thick and healthy.

What does it cost?

Hydroseeding is about a fourth of the cost of sod. Both require preparation and after care. With hydroseeding you have no labor or labor cost of laying it. One other benefit of hydroseeding over sod is that roots from the newly applied seed form directly in the original soil unlike sod where the roots must work their way into the underlying soil.  This basically means that you can put a heavy riding mower on a hydroseeded yard after a couple of months instead of the 4-6 months recommended for sod.

How long before the lawn looks good?

Depending on weather conditions, seed planted and watering, germination begins in 7 to 35 days. The first mowing can be as early as 4 weeks and up to 8 weeks after the application; again, depending on weather conditions. In the end it provides a thicker, healthier, and more durable grass.

Preparation:

No matter what method is used: hydroseeding, drill seeding, or sodding; the soil or seedbed must be properly prepared if the seed or sod is to become well established. The contractor, landscaper, or homeowner can do the preparation of the area.  With hydroseeding soil preparation is a minimum; the soil surface just needs to be level enough to mow.  Most times the soil is level enough.

Call today and let Greener Days Hydroseeding give you the lawn you have always wanted.
