Hydroseeding is the easiest, most carefree, and most economical method of seeding a lawn and provides a lush, beautiful lawn in Michigan.
What does it mean to Hydroseed a lawn?
Hydroseeding is a lawn seeding method in which selectively-blended grass seed varieties, growth promoting fertilizers, and moisture-storing mulch are mixed together with water and sprayed onto your yard after the ground has been thoroughly graded and cleaned of debris. The wet mulch and fertilizer feed the grass seed blend, nurturing it into a healthy, green lawn. Proper and consistent watering after hydro-seeding is an important step for your lawn maintenance after hydro-seeding.
The Clark’s Landscape Hydroseeding Difference
Seed Since your lawn is something that you will live with for a long time, it pays to start with a quality seed mix. All of Clark’s grass seed mixes are custom blended for local environmental conditions for the Michigan seasons. There are hundreds of seed varieties. Of these, Clark’s chooses the perfect few to use in your yard. Our seed blends contain a multitude of hybrid bluegrass, rye, and fescue varieties. What this means for you is a soft, low maintenance lawn that fills in quickly and always looks healthy and beautiful.
Fertilizer The stuff that makes your lawn fertile. The fertilizer used in Clark’s hydroseed applications is sulfur-coated to provide a slow-release throughout the germination process of the seed. Competitive fertilizers often leach out of the root zone during the heavy watering and starve the lawn of the nutrients it requires for a healthy development. Unlike these competitive fertilizers, our fertilizer is specially designed to keep your lawn a healthy green.
Mulch Mulching not only holds water to keep the seed wet in the heat of the summer day, but it provides food for the grass as it breaks down. Clark’s Landscape uses the best mulches available on the market today. We use a unique blend of recycled paper and wood cellulose. This blend allows for optimum moisture-retention for excellent germination.
Keeping your Lawn Hydrated
Any type of lawn installation, be it sod or hydroseeding, requires a lot of water, especially if it’s being installed in the heat of the summer. The seed has to be kept moist to germinate. We recommend watering 3 short times a day for the first few weeks. We strongly recommend an underground irrigation system if you intend to hydroseed. It can be installed before the final grade is done, meaning it won’t have to be torn up after the lawn is established, and it will eliminate the need to drag hoses around on your newly hydroseeded lawn. It further simplifies the process and is surprisingly inexpensive.
