If your lawn needs to be seeded, there are a number of ways that you can do it. If you only have a small or flat yard, you can do it by hand. It will take you some time to do, but it is doable. But if you have a large yard or there are a lot of hills, then trying to do it all by hand can be time-consuming. Another option is to talk to a landscaper who offers hydroseeding as one of their services.
Hydroseeding involves a slurry of seeds, mulch, and fertilizer being sprayed over your yard or anywhere that needs to be seeded. The slurry is put in a tanker truck that has a hose attached to it. When the truck gets to the site to be seeded, the hose is turned on, and the slurry is sprayed on the ground. The slurry will dry, acting as mulch, and the seeds will germinate and root, turning into grass. You might want to use hydroseeding for several reasons if you need to reseed your yard or any large area.
One reason to use hydroseeding is that it will be faster than other options. If you do it by hand, even using some kind of spreader, it will take a long time because you have to make sure that you walk the entire area to be seeded. However, with hydroseeding, you don't have to walk through the entire area; you can have the person doing the spraying make sure that they cover everything. The tanker trucks often have a platform to stand on, so the person doing the application can stand there and spray everything, allowing them to access more space and cover it more efficiently.
You can get better coverage with hydroseeding as well. Part of that is because the slurry is colored, so you can easily see where it has been applied and where it hasn't. That makes it easier not to miss any spots. It also makes getting even coverage easier, which will let your new yard grow better.
If you need to have a large area seeded, consider using hydroseeding. It can help you get grass seed where it needs to be, letting you have the lush and gorgeous yard you want. Talk to a landscaping company in your area to see if they can use hydroseeding for your yard. For more information on hydroseeding, contact a professional near you.
