Hydroseeding is a process of mixing grass seed, fertilizer, tackifier and wood fiber-mulch with water in correct proportions inside a mechanical hydroseeding machine, then spraying the mixture or “slurry” onto the designated soil areas. Calgary Lawn Solutions Hydroseeding uses only top quality wood-based hydro-mulches and tackifiers that are far superior than less expensive paper mulches. The Wood Fiber Mulch provides excelent erosion control, moisture retention and helps prevent pests from getting to the seed to provide an ideal growing environment for the grass seed. Wood fiber hydro-mulches also have a much greater water retention for quick germination and growth, and prevents soil erosion from wind and water. We are proud to provide a generous portion of Canadian Certified Grass Seed that has the highest retaining germination rate in the industry with a 99.9% purity rate to ensure the highest succes rates and reduced weeds. Hydroseeding and hydro-mulching can be used in all types of residential and commercial construction, including: grass seeding projects, oil and gas site reclamation, slope protection and ditch erosion control, or even to replace an old expired lawn. Hydroseeding is a quick, easy and economical alternative to sodding. You can have a beautiful, healthy, durable lawn at a fraction of the cost of sodding.

The Growing-in Stage:
Irrigation in the first 2-3 weeks is most important for getting your new lawn to germinate evenly and quickly.The mulch must be kept damp at all times so the emerging seedlings do not dry out. Under or over watering can both produce unfavorable results. The hydroseeding product is weed-free but weed seed is always present in the soil whether supplied to you or existing. When you start watering your new lawn, weeds will also start to appear. These can be controlled with a selective weed-spray when your lawn is established. All grass seed supplied is custom blended for individual requirements, tested and certified.
