I want grass!
Which is better seed & straw, sod or Hydro-Seed?
This is the question people most frequently ask us. Hand seeding requires time, persistence, hard work and, often, re-seeding. Heavy rain can wash away your seed, sun and drought can burn it out or a flock of birds can stop by for lunch. Sodding is the fastest but also the most expensive method. In just 3-4 weeks after a Hydro-Seed application, you can be enjoying a plush green yard.
With Libbee’s Hydro-Seed equipment a mixture of seed, fertilizer, hydro-mulch, tackifier and water are all sprayed on the area in one fast easy step and Hydro-Seeding eliminating the use of messy straw! 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, erosion, and pests. As the grass seeds begin to germinate, the fiber mulch will slowly decompose adding nutrients to the soil. Hydro-Seeding is great for problem areas and difficult to seed areas such as hillsides, erosion control areas and narrow areas between sidewalks and curbs.
