Why Hydroseed?

Hydroseeding has many great benefits that make it a much better option than sod. Some of these things are listed below, but for more information about each of these, visit our website @

1. Cost Effective
  •  Hydroseeding is the most economical way to have grass establish well and quickly, without having the great expense of sod.  It typically costs 50-80% less than sod, and is almost always more effective.
2. Quality
  • A hydroseeded lawn offers much healthier, greener, longer lasting grass. With sod there is risk of transplant shock, meaning the grass didn't "take". It is very difficult for the roots of sod to establish into the ground it has been transplanted to. With hydroseeding, there is no risk of transplant shock because the grass is sown where it will establish and grow; no need to be uprooted and moved! The roots establish quickly with the help of fertilizer and mulch to protect it from the wind and sun. 
3. Health
  • Because hydroseeded grass is sown where it will establish and live, the grass will be much healthier, and have a much easier life than that of sod. The slurry of mulch, fertilizer and water creates an ideal growing environment for the grass seeds, and promotes quick root establishment and growth. The mulch offers protection from the wind, sun and rain, and the fertilizer aids in quick germination. 
4. Labour
  • Hydroseeding is much less labour intensive than laying sod. Sod can be very expensive per square foot, plus labour costs on top of that. There is always the option to do it yourself, but we all know it's backbreaking and dirty. Hydroseeding is a quick and easy process that only requires one person, and they could spray the area in a fraction of the time a person could lay the same area with sod. You prepare the soil and ensure it's level and weeds are removed, and we do the rest! 

These are only a few of the benefits of hydroseeding. To see more and learn more about the hydroseeding process, visit our website!
