Hydroseeding was invented in the early 1950's as a method by which to combine both grass seed and fertilizer for seeding large tracts of land, especially areas that were inaccessible or unsuitable for conventional methods. Since that time, it has grown to become the method of choice for seeding residential lawns, golf courses, highway roadsides, commercial tracts, and more.
Hydroseeding is more effective than traditional seeding. Hydroseeding can be completed in a very short period of time. It can be very effective for hillsides and sloping lawns to help with erosion control and quick planting. Hydroseeding cost less than planting with sod. Results are often quick with high germination rates producing grass growth in about a week and mowing maintenance beginning around 3 to 4 weeks from the date of application. Fiber mulch accelerates the growing process by maintaining moisture around the seeds thereby increasing the rate of germination.
