What is Hydroseeding?

Learn Why Hydro-Seeding is Better Than Sod for Colorado Land Owners


Hydroseeding is also referred as liquid sod, spray on grass, spray on lawns or spray on sod. Hydroseeding consists of using a custom premium seed mix, 100% wood fiber mulch, and tackifier when needed, water and fertilizer mixed in a Hydroseeding machine to form a perfect slurry. The slurry is sprayed, under pressure, uniformly onto the prepared soil to start a beautiful lawn mowing in 21 days weather permitting. This slurry is a high quality, custom-blended, drought tolerant Blue Grass.

Hydromulching offers better results than conventional seeding at a lower cost, generally one third to one half of the price of sodding. We have been landscaping beautiful lawns from Pueblo to Denver to Colorado Springs for over 40 years. Hydroseeding and liquid soil is a better, more affordable alternative to sod.
