Cost is roughly 1/4 the price of sod. As little as .10 cents per sq ft. Minimum charge is $450 which includes up to 2500 sq ft
Hydroseeding is a one step process and can be the fastest way to creating a lush green lawn. It is also a great way of planting wild flowers, crown vetch, native grasses, for soil stabilization projects, re-vegetation, erosion control and lots more.
The hydroseeding process involves spraying on a mixture of water, a high quality grass seed, hydroseeding mulch which protects the seed and helps keep the seed moist to promote fast germination, a high quality starter fertilizer that feeds the new seedlings and promotes a strong root system, and a tacking agent which works like a glue to help hold the material in place in the event of heavy rains.
Hydro seeding typically will produce great results faster than other methods of establishing a new lawn. Feel free to visit the advantages page to see how it compares to other seeding methods and why sod quality results can be achieved at a fraction of the cost.

Hydroseeding (or hydraulic mulch seeding, hydro-mulching, hydraseeding) is a planting process that uses a slurry of seed and mulch. It is often used as an erosion control technique on construction sites, as an alternative to the traditional process of broadcasting or sowing dry seed.
The hydroseeding slurry is transported in a tank, either truck-mounted or trailer-mounted and sprayed over prepared ground. Hydroseeding is an alternative to the traditional process of broadcasting or sowing dry seed.
If planting a relatively large area, 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 will typically cost less than planting with sod, but more than broadcast seeding. 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
