Creating An Inviting Yard

I have always been one of those people who loves to create a warm, inviting atmosphere for others, which is why I started looking at landscaping design in the first place. It was incredible to me to see how much of a difference I was able to make by adding a few new plants, and after that first project, I wanted to help other people. I started volunteering to help friends and neighbors do their landscaping, and after a few months, I had developed quite a following. This blog is all about creating a warm, inviting yard through smart landscaping and an eye for detail.

2 Reasons To Hydroseed Your Lawn

by Addison Washington

If you want to quickly plant grass in your yard for near-instant results, then you have likely considered hydroseeding. Hydroseeding is the process of basically spraying mulch and moisture-infused grass seed onto your landscape so new growth can begin.

Whether you are skilled in maintaining a lawn or you are new to having a new yard of grass, consider hydroseeding. Here are 2 reasons to choose hydroseeding over other type of grass planting techniques.

Hydroseeding requires little maintenance

With grass seed, you have to avoid walking on planted areas and must water your newly-planted lawn several times a day in the hopes grass blades will soon begin to appear. With sod you must water frequently and plant your grass before it dries out to ensure it "takes" and you have healthy growth.

With hydroseeding, maintenance is still required but you don't have to do as much work as other techniques in order for your grass to grow. Since the seed is mixed with thick, moist mulch you don't have to worry about the seeds being washed away with too much watering. They are able to take root easily and grow much easier than traditional grass seed, and hydroseeding results are almost as fast as planting sod. 

Hydroseeding has a high success rate

Hydroseeding is a special technique that leads to an evenly layered lawn. Thick layers of healthy grass seed are applied on all areas of your yard. The application process and the way the grass seed is treated prior to being applied to your lawn helps ensure that you will have a more even growth and more areas where the seed fills in completely.

With sod you often have to replace dead or dying areas that don't take root and with grass seed you often have to re-apply the seed for thicker grass growth. Hydroseeding helps make your whole lawn grow in successfully the first time, which saves time and money in the process. Keep this in mind as you are choosing your grass application to your yard.

Whether you want to give your lawn a quick makeover or you are planting grass for the very first time, talk to your landscaper about hydroseeding. This technique can make your yard look beautiful rather quickly and can be a very cost-effective technique for making your yard lush and green as well. To find out if hydroseeding is the right option for your needs, compare it to other grass options and reach out to companies like Reed Hydromulch.
