|Golf Courses, Sports Fields,
Commercial Complexes, Private
Landscapes -- from 1000 SQFT to
1000 Acres we have the equipment
and personnel to seed your grass.
We purchase all types of turf seed per
project, so all seed has guaranteed
purity and germination percentages
and is the exact species and variety
of your choice or specification. Call or
email for a quote or consultation.
|Types of Turf Grasses
|Mature Creeping Red. Great for slopes, meadows and
erosion control. Irrigate to keep green year-round.
|SOME THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT HYDROSEEDED TURF
As necessary, bring in a good quality top soil and or rototill
amendments into the areas you plan to seed. Use caution when
considering the addition of recycled wood compost. This material can
contain weed seed which you do not want to introduce to your site.
Also, recycled wood compost will take up nitrogen necessary for good
germination of new seedlings. If soil fertility is in question, a soils test
($100 +/-) can simply determine what amendments should be added to
your soil or to the hydroseed slurry to optimize turf growth. If a good
turf stand (or weed stand) has flourished in the soil previously, a soils
test is probably not warranted.
Proper irrigation is important. The irrigation system should have total
coverage and should water evenly. Check for head-to-head coverage
(overlap), low and high spots. Re-grade any deficiencies and adjust
heads/change nozzles. The system should be capable of watering 2-5
times per day during the germination period.
Weed control is important. Remove undesired vegetation from the area.
Water & fertilize the area to germinate weed seed. This will also show
you if you have head-to-head coverage, or not. Dry areas will not grow
grass. After weeds have germinated (7-14 days), spray the weeds with
a contact weed killer like Round-Up, or remove the weeds by hand.
Pre-seed irrigation and weed kill/removal may take more than one cycle
depending on your site.
After hydroseeding, all surface areas must be kept continually moist
with frequent light watering. Water 2-5 times per day depending upon
weather. Avoid puddling or runoff. Do not allow germinating seedlings
to dry out or they will die. Once seed has germinated, and growth is
established, water should be applied with less frequency, but for longer
periods of time. Deep watering will establish deep root growth.
Mow grass every 7-10 days depending on the species you have selected
and fertilize with any balanced fertilizer 1-3 times per year depending
upon species and soil conditions. Regular mowing will manage weeds
and push lateral growth, creating a tight stand of grass.
