Choosing what is best for you
Sod and hydroseeding will both get you to the same ending point, a lush green yard. Choosing between the two options can come down to how fast you want a completed yard. Sodding a yard is instant gratification. By instant gratification we mean that we show up to a finish graded dirt surface prepared by our grading team and when we leave you have a full yard of grass. Sodding can all take place in a matter of hours. With hydroseeding, spraying the seed, water and mulch takes very little time. It is the weeks you have to wait for the grass seed to germinate and mature. Both have their benefits and uses. Let’s take a look at when you should hydro seed.
Using a hydroseeder to plant grass seed is an inexpensive way to establish grass. Even though it takes time for the grass to mature, hydroseeding is a great option for commercial and residential use. Our team completes more hydro seeding jobs for contractors and commercial work. The situations the contractors are in do not require immediate grass and more often than not require erosion control. Below are the most common situations where we recommend hydroseeding.
