Fast and effective grass seeding for large spaces.
Hydromulching, sometimes referred to as hydroseeding or spraygrass, is a grass planting process which is often more effective than conventional seeding and in many cases more economical than conventional turfing over large areas.
The hydromulching process
This process begins by mixing mulch, seed, fertiliser and water in the tank of a spray grass machine. The mixed material is then pumped from the tank and sprayed onto the ground. Once applied to the soil, the combined material enhances initial growth by providing a micro-environment beneficial to seed germination.
If the area is well prepared and growing conditions suited, the result will be a smooth and evenly covered surface making it the perfect solution for a variety of large areas.
The mulch material
Mulch products are usually produced from wood or recycled paper, Turfco uses a product called Conwed Fibers. A very specific fibre texture is particularly important in achieving an erosion resistant product which can also be easily pumped with a hydromulching machine. The mulch fibre is dyed green for aesthetics, but the colour is also important so that the thickness of application can be monitored.
The results of hydromulching
Seed bed conditions determine growth rates after germination, for instance warm and moist conditions promote faster seed germination. When all conditions are favourable, in as little as three to four weeks, grass will have excellent coverage and may need mowing.
