At TenderCare, we customize hydroseed to fit your home environment. We understand that not all hydroseeding is the same, so we use only the finest in hydromulching products and equipment. It’s important for contractors to apply bonded fiber matrix or wood fiber mulch mixed with proprietary bonding agents. Certain hydroseeding machines can only spray paper mulch products, which can result in an inferior job with a greater chance of erosion control problems.
Hydroseeding is the process of mixing seed, fertilizer and fiber-mulch with water in correct proportions inside a tank and spraying the homogenous slurry onto designated lawn areas.
Putting the seed, fertilizer and mulch into a solution means the seed will be encapsulated within water-retaining mulch as it is applied. Since seed requires moisture and warmth to germinate, the process gives the seed a “jump-start” in the growth cycle.
The fertilizer (and lime or sulphur if needed) placed in a solution quickly adjusts the existing soil chemistry to provide for sturdy grass plant growth. Your new grass sinks roots into chemically balanced soil, thereby enjoying a growing stimulus when it needs it most.
The fiber mulch retains water longer than straw and many other mulches, acts as a stabilizer to delay water and wind erosion, reduces surface evaporation from the soil, and provides an outstanding germinating medium as it traps moisture around the seed as well as wicks moisture to the seed. This is crucial when grass roots are forming.
The carefully proportioned materials mixed thoroughly together in a homogenous slurry provide an ideal medium for:
Eventually, the mulch becomes a humus added to the soil. The end result is a lush, long-lasting lawn at a most reasonable cost without the negatives of dry seeding with separate applications of fertilizer, seed and straw.
