Worried about bald spots in your yard? Looking to green out your struggling lawn? Hydroseeding could be the perfect solution for your residential or commercial property.

Hydroseeding is a process used to establish grass quickly and cost-effectively. It’s also becoming a popular alternative to less effective traditional seeding. Anyone can use a hydroseeding service to add a finishing touch to their lawn. You just need to find the right provider to help — including the professionals at PurGreen Group.

Here’s everything you need to know about hydroseeding, including how it works, how long it takes, and how much it costs to get the job done right.

How Does Hydroseeding Work?

Hydroseeding uses a combination of materials — including grass seed, water, mulch, fertilizer, and green dye — to cover empty patches of lawn or finished construction sites. Although it’s not a brand-new type of landscaping service, it’s only now becoming a popular option for residential homeowners.

Your landscaper may use specialized equipment to cover your lawn in a thick layer of slurry. This process may take just a few hours to complete, or up to a few days depending on the size of your lawn.

There’s no one species of grass covered by hydroseeding. However, it’s important to choose a species or variety that thrives in your general area. Here in Chesterland, this includes:

  • Kentucky bluegrass
  • Perennial ryegrass
  • Tall fescue
  • Fine fescue

How Long Does Hydroseeding Take?

As mentioned, the application speed of a hydroseeding service depends on the size of your lawn. It may take a few hours or a few days to apply an even layer of slurry, especially if the weather isn’t cooperative.

How long it takes to see grass shoots appear? That depends on temperature and rainfall. However, you can generally expect shoots to appear in two weeks — just be mindful to stay off the lawn in the meantime. You should wait five weeks before walking on your hydroseeded lawn to give the grass a chance to establish itself.

How Much Does Hydroseeding Cost?

The cost of hydroseeding varies depending on your provider, property size, and type of grass seed. Smaller properties typically cost less, while larger properties often cost more.

Keep in mind hydroseeding is a one-time investment — once it’s done, you don’t need it again.
