Hydroseeding? Never heard of it...

Chances are‚ you have probably seen hydroseeding but didn’t know what to call it. If you’ve ever noticed the green‚ textured material sprayed along the side of the road or at the golf course‚ you’ve seen hydroseeding.

How does Hydroseeding work?

The components of hydroseeding are:
Water
Seed (grasses‚ wildflowers‚ practically any seed!)
Fertilizer
Wood Fibre Mulch
Organic Tackifier (the glue to hold it all together)

When these 5 components are placed in our seeder and mechanically chopped and agitated‚ the result is a nutrient–rich slurry. This slurry contains all of the elements necessary for healthy‚ fast growing plants.

This slurry is then sprayed onto your prepared soil. When the biodegradable glue in our slurry sets‚ it creates a stable environment resistant to erosion from wind and water. This environment is more resistant to evaporation as well‚ and helps in retaining the water necessary for the germination of your grass seed.

A Wise Choice

LAWNS GROWN ON SITE ARE MORE RESISTANT TO DISEASE
The root system of a hydroseeded lawn has been established on site. Sod cutting opens up the grass plants to disease. Plants established on site are healthier than plants which have been moved to a new soil environment.

CHOOSE A SEED VARIETY TAILORED TO YOUR SPECIFIC NEED
We can plant any grass variety to suit your needs; from typical sod type grass‚ to more drought tolerant eco–friendly varieties. Native grass seed‚ wildflowers‚ or general vegetative cover... the possibilities are almost endless.

HYDROSEEDING IS SURPRISINGLY COST–EFFICIENT
In the Calgary area‚ hydroseeding is becoming a popular choice for economic reasons as well. The cost of sod is approximately .25 per ft2. Add installation and delivery costs‚ and it will end up costing .60 to $1 per ft2. A hydroseeded lawn will cost 1/3 the price of sod or less. An urban residential lot can be hydroseeded for .13 to .16 per ft2 (including installation) depending on the size of lot and seed variety chosen. A larger space such as an acreage or park will cost even less. Contact us today for a free estimate.
