The hydroseeding slurry is transported in a tank and sprayed over prepared ground. Hydroseeding is an alternative to the traditional process of broadcasting or sowing dry seed. It can be very effective for hillsides and sloping lawns to help with erosion control and quick planting. Fiber mulch accelerates the growing process by maintaining moisture around the seeds thereby increasing the rate of germination. Hydro seeding typically costs less than sod but, more than broadcast seeding. Results are often quick with high germination rates producing grass growth in about 10 to 14 days. Mowing often begins around 4 to 5 weeks from the date of application.
