What is Hydroseeding?

Here's how it works... Grass seed, fertilizer, fibrous mulch and water are mixed into a thick slurry, which is evenly sprayed onto your prepared soil. You will get a fast, thicker, more uniform lawn, which will be healthier and last longer because it's grown in place at your home to your soil conditions.

Once your soil has been hydroseeded, the grass seeds and fertilizer are suspended in a protective interlocking fibrous mulch mat. This mat not only prevents wind and water from eroding the new seeds, it also provides needed nitrogen as it decomposes. The mulch mat also serves as a sponge by holding moisture--critical for proper seed germination. In addition, the fibers create a micro-greenhouse effect for fast germination.

Hydroseeding is an effective, quick and affordable grass seeding solution for:
  • Lawns

  • Pastures

  • Golf Courses

  • Wetlands

  • Retention Ponds

  • Bio-swales

  • Landfills

  • Large Construction Sites

  • Erosion Control

  • Steep Slope Stabilization with Bonded Fiber Matrix

  • Dust Control with Pam


We eliminate the back-breaking job of installing sod through hydroseeding your lawn at a fraction of the cost. By having your lawn hydroseeded, you save more than 50% of the price of sod, plus labor of installation.


Hydroseeding Provides Lush Lawn Fast

Agrow-Tech's special certified seed mix promotes rapid germination. In 7 to 10 days you should see growth, and in 3 weeks have a lush, full lawn. Our mix produces a fine blade, deep-rooted, superb quality lawn not available with conventional sod or other standard hydroseeding.

Guaranteed Results With Hydroseeding

By having your lawn hydroseeded you are ensuring nearly 100% seed growth. Each seed is suspended and protected in a mulch mat. You won't have the problem of watching your seeds "wash away in streams" only to puddle up in clumps. The risk of sprout dehydration is greatly reduced as the mulch matting retains water. Your grass seeds do not blow away, but root in place as they are held securely in the mulch fibers, creating a micro-greenhouse effect.


Hydroseeding Saves You Time & Money

Our special hydroseeding process provides you with absolutely the best method to attain a high-quality lawn without a high price tag. By having your lawn hydro-seeded, you eliminate continuous re-seeding and expense of regular seeding. Agrow-Tech eliminates the high cost and labor of conventional sod installation and yields superior results and vigorous growth to a beautiful lawn every time.

Watering and Care of Your
Hydroseeded Lawn

Your lawn has just been professionally hydroseeded with a safe non-toxic nutrient mix of certified seed, fertilizer, and specially processed wood fibers that provide a micro-environment for fast vigorous growth. "We strongly recommend that you follow the instructions below."

Hydroseeding Germination

The first blades of grass should appear within 7-10 days after planting. Germination time depends on weather, temperature, and amount of watering by you the homeowner! Sometimes germination takes longer with temperatures of 60 degrees and below. When the grass starts to appear, keep in mind what you see is about 20% of the seed germination initially. The remainder will follow and continue to thicken into sod within 2 to 3 weeks. At first, you may think some areas were missed, but that is not the case. Germination time differs with each type of seed.

Watering Your Hydroseeded Lawn

Do not allow the hydroseeded area to dry out for 2 weeks after planting. Water 3 times per day or enough to keep the top layer of soil moist. Watch for hot weather and wind which may require more watering. DO NOT ALLOW THE MIX TO BAKE OUT AND DELAY THE GROWTH. KEEP THE YARD MOIST WITHOUT WASHING THE MIX. You can walk on the yard, but be careful not to disturb the mix, such as dragging the hose and exposing the dirt. As your lawn matures, less frequent watering is necessary. Continue to water 3 times per week for approximately 15 minutes per area, until your first mowing. After your first mowing, your lawn will require one inch of water per week. Remember, early morning is the best time of day to water.

Mowing Your Hydroseeded Lawn

When the lawn has substantial coverage of 3" tall young grass, discontinue watering. When the ground is dry enough, mow the grass, make sure the mower blades are sharp and never cut off more than one-third of the grass each mowing. Then resume watering on a three to five day basis, and continue mowing to a height of one and one half to two inches.

Fertilizing Your Hydroseeded Lawn

Your lawn must be fertilized 2 weeks after application and again 30 days later. Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer found at your local farm and garden stores. Use a broadcast spreader not a drop spreader to apply fertilizer to your lawn to ensure even coverage. If using a granular fertilizer, apply to dry grass, then water lawn thoroughly. As lawn matures, soak periodically rather than frequent light or daily watering. "In order to maintain a high quality lawn you must have an ongoing fertilizing program after the second application of fertilizer!"

Weed Control For Your Hydroseeded Lawn

Weeds may come from imported topsoil, the existing soil or from nearby areas. If weeds appear, do not apply weed control products for 3 months after hydroseeding. At that time, weeds may be spot sprayed with a safe herbicide.
