Hydraulic Mulch Seeding (Hydroseeding) is our specialty at Lawn & Turf Contracting. Hydroseeding offers a cost effective way to install a quick establishing, healthy lawn. Seed is applied evenly on site by a wood fibre mulch sprayed across a prepared surface. The mulch acts as a germination bed by retaining moisture, resulting in a quick and consistent strike within 5-14 days, depending on soil temperature and seed variety. During germination, the mulch layer restricts the growth of weeds, while protecting the seed from wind, rain and adverse weather conditions. Fertiliser and tacking agents are also added to the moisture to boost the lawn establishment phase.

Fertiliser and tacking agents are also added to the moisture to boost the lawn establishment phase. Hydroseeding gives you a guaranteed result under the most adverse of weather conditions. We use wood fibre mulch which gives twice the moisture retention and twice the stick ability than paper mulch which is commonly used by other applications. We use leading market products and the most up to date industry technology. Link to profile products data sheets
