Hydroseeding

Our Hydroseed machines mix together seed, water, fertiliser, tackifier (glue), and green wood fiber mulch to create a slurry. The slurry is then sprayed on the ground at high pressure . These conditions are perfect to produce a lush green lawn in a very short time and at a fraction of the cost of roll out lawn.

HydroSeeding  is a cost effective option for obtaining a beautiful lush lawn. It is a cheaper option to instant turf, though the same amount of ground preparation is required.

At Ground Care, we work to the highest standards of this industry. As a result, we do not use home made blends of non-renewable  products or recycled newspaper  as mulch, only the highest quality of 100% virgin  wood fibre with tackifiers at concentrations appropriate to the contracted application. We are firmly committed to successful lawn establishment and erosion control on every project.

+ What is hydroseeding?

Hydroseeding is a process of combining seed, wood fibre mulch, fertiliser, tackifiers and other organic additives with water to form a slurry mixture. This mixture is pressure applied to the soil to create the ideal environment for seed germination and turf development. Grass may appear in as little as 5 days and be well established in 3-4 weeks.

+ How soon will I have Grass?

Hydroseeded lawns will begin to germinate is as little as 5-7 days. Most grass types will take between 3-4 weeks to fill in .

+ IS HYDROSEEDING DANGEROUS TO MY CHILDREN OR PETS?

No Hydroseeding is a completely safe and non-toxic method of growing grass that is harmless to kids, pets and the environment.

+ DO ALL HYDROSEEDING CONTRACTORS USE THE SAME MATERIALS?

No. Some companies use the least amount of materials, less expensive seed or recycled newspaper as mulch. This means that you are not getting the best quality lawn.

+ Can I Hydroseed an existing lawn?

Yes, hydroseeding is not just for new lawns, it can be used to renovate or overseed existing lawn as well. It will fill in bare, weak areas and create a much healthier lawn.
