Getting A Gorgeous Lawn With Hydroseeding

Sonia Scott

When it comes to the value of your newly-constructed home, completing the landscaping process as soon as possible can be beneficial. If you are looking for a simple, yet effective way to start growing grass on your new property, then you may want to invest in hydroseeding.

Hydroseeding is done by connecting your garden hose to a tank containing water, grass seeds, fertilizer, mulch, and soil treatment agents. Here are three reasons why you might want to invest in hydroseeding to help landscape your newly-constructed home.

1. Hydroseeding is a versatile seed application method

If your home's landscape isn't completely flat then you may find it difficult to sow grass seeds the traditional way. Using a tiller to loosen soil on an incline can be both challenging and dangerous.

Covering sloped areas with grass is the best way to help control soil erosion on your property, and hydroseeding provides a versatile application method to help you promote the growth of grass with relying on a tiller. Simply use your garden hose to spray the seed mixture onto the sloped area, and allow the seeds time to germinate.

2. Hydroseeding helps healthy grass grow

When starting a new lawn, it can be challenging to get healthy grass to grow. Unless the soil conditions are right to promote grass growth, you may find yourself constantly applying new seeds or fertilizers to help promote the germination process.

When you make the choice to invest in hydroseeding, soil treatments and fertilizers are applied at the same time as the grass seeds. This ensures that the seeds will have access to adequate nutrition, helping to speed the growth of healthy grass on your new property.

3. Hydroseeding helps camouflage the growth phase

A new home that is surrounded by dirt can be unsightly. If you are hoping to camouflage your property's soil during the growth phase in order to help improve the aesthetic appeal of your new home, then hydroseeding could be the right option.

Many manufacturers dye the mulch that is included in their hydroseed mixture green. Having colored mulch allows you to not only see where you have applied the hydroseed mixture to avoid missing any spots, but it can serve as a way to camouflage the bare soil while the grass seeds are germinating.

When it comes to landscaping your newly-constructed home, take advantage of the benefits that the hydroseeding process can provide. For more information, contact companies like

About Me
New Gardener? Choose Your Flowers Carefully

As a child and teenager, I watched my mother garden, although I wasn't interested in it at the time. I later learned that I had missed out on learning the craft because before I planted my first garden, I thought it would be so easy! Once I finally had a yard of my own, I was eager to plant some beautiful flowers in the yard and do other landscaping work. Unfortunately, I learned a hard lesson and none of things I planted survived more than a few weeks, even though I watered them daily. I gave my mother a call and asked her what could have gone wrong, and I learned that plants have to be chosen carefully. Check out this blog to learn more landscaping plant tips.
