At Alternative Landscapes, we are a full-service hardscape and landscaping company that focuses on excellence. We understand that our clients want tough, hardy, and aesthetically appealing lawns. It's why we recommend they opt for hydroseeding against sod installations.
We cater to residential and commercial clients and handle hydroseeding jobs of any type. With over 15 years of managing similar projects throughout Northwest Ohio, we have what it takes to provide our clients with high-grade solutions. While hydroseeded lawns take longer to take root and grow, they can endure wear and tear much better.
What is Hydroseeding?Hydroseeding (or hydraulic mulch seeding, hydro-mulching, hydraseeding) is a planting process which utilizes a slurry of seed and mulch. The process is called sprigging (or hydro-sprigging) when the slurry contains stolons or rhizomes instead of seed.
The slurry is transported in a tank, either truck or trailer mounted and sprayed over prepared ground in a uniform layer; helicopters may be used in cases where larger areas must be covered. Hydroseeding is an alternative to the traditional process of broadcasting or sowing dry seed.
It promotes quick germination and inhibits soil erosion. The mulch in the hydroseed mixture helps maintain the moisture level of the seed and seedlings. The slurry often has other ingredients including fertilizer, tackifying agents, green dye and other additives.
History of hydroseedingThe first commercial hydroseeder was invented in the United States in the early 1950s in order to efficiently shoot seed and fertilizer over broad areas. The process is now used throughout the world, arriving in the United Kingdom in the 1960s.
Advantages of HydroseedingHydroseeding is used to seed grass on commercial sites (highways/motorways etc.), golf courses, lawns and areas too large, inaccessible or unsuitable for conventional methods.
Starting a lawn by hydroseeding is considerably cheaper than laying sod/turf and quicker than using seed. It is also used to spread mixtures of wildflower and tree/shrub seeds or turf grasses for erosion control.
