Hello nature lover.....!

Hydroseeding is a process by which seed, water, fertilizer, fiber mulch, and sometimes lime are blended together in a tank and applied onto a prepared lawn area through a spraying hose. Once sprayed, the wet fiber mulch will help create a bond to the soil and provide the seeds with a water retaining blanketing-coat while protecting it from sunlight, wind, and erosion. As the grass seeds begin to germinate, the fiber mulch will slowly decompose adding nutrients to the soil.

Hydroseeding works very well as a method to successfully establish turf grass especially when planting zoysia or bermuda seed. However, a couple of key points need to be considered when measuring your area and applying the mulch with the seed, in order to increase the odds for success.

Soil temperature is still a critical factor when hydroseeding, although some applicators include green dye or other dark colored agents in the tank mix in order to warm the seed bed up earlier - this does help, but growth will still be slow, until SOIL temperatures are consistently over 60 degrees F (similar to the night air temperature).

Hydromulch applications can improve and benefit soil moisture levels to help germinate the seed, especially if a commercial wetting solution is added to the tank mix. Moisture is especially critical for a successful seeding of zoysia grass seed which needs readily available moisture to germinate well. However, just using hydro application with its initial tank load of water is not enough - additional rainfall or irrigation must still be applied regularly for the first 2-3 weeks for the best results.

Seed planting depth can be even more critical in a hydro application process, as a too thick layer of mulch will cover the bermuda or zoysia seed too much and prevent it from receiving the needed light to stimulate the germination process.

Do Not plant the seed first and "cap it" with a layer of hydro mulch over the top of the seedbed - this is always too thick a cover for the seeds, and germination results will be very slow and disappointing. Mixing the seeds into the tank is more desirable, but again - do not apply too thick a layer or the seeds may be buried too deeply. Also, a too-thick layer of mulch may leave the seeds hung up too far off the ground to root in properly - the seeds need to be fairly close to the soil surface so that the new roots can be established .

Shade has no impact in the seeding technique for either zoysia or bermudagrass seed. Bermudagrass needs a minimum of 6 hours good sunlight each day to grow well and thrive. Zoysia seed will germinate poorly in too much shade, but mature zoysia can tolerate some shade, and the plants from surrounding areas may be able to creep in and cover nearby bare areas with moderate shade conditions.
