Hydroseeding and decompaction is definitely the most economical choice for establishing the growing results desired without the expense, time consumption, material costs or installation demands of sodding or traditional hand seeding methods. Hydro seeding typically costs 50-80% less than the price of sod, and coupled with labor charges, the overall expenses associated with sodding can be astronomical. With the savings in material costs and installation expenses, a lawn could be fully established for half the price of sod. The savings that can be achieved when comparing the square footage costs are the same savings that are getting passed on to the client’s bottom-line.
Benefits of hydro seeding
· Hydroseed has an attractive green appearance that looks far better than lawns dry seeded and covered with straw mulch.
· Unlike straw that is often used as a protective cover for a newly seeded area, hydro seeding mulch has NO weed seed. Straw is loaded with weed seed.
· Hydro seeding allows the custom tailoring of the proper seed for your job. It is not uncommon to use two or even three seeds custom spraying the right seed for different areas on the lawn or job. Many custom hydro seeding contractors will use one seed for shady areas, one for high traffic areas, one to make the front lawn a showpiece.
