Hydroseeding vs. Sod

Hydroseeding vs. Sod

If you've recently bought a property or your lawn has fallen into disrepair, then you may be considering ways to fix it. Two options for creating a new lawn in Massachusetts include sod and hydroseeding, both of which are popular options in Lunenburg, Concord, Leominster, and nearby cities.

Most people know that sod installation involves placing rolls of grass directly onto bare soil, rolling it to make it level, and then watering it for a bit. Hydroseeding, however, is not as common of a term—but it's an incredibly efficient way to create a new lawn. It involves spraying a slurry mixture of seed, mulch, fertilizer, and other substances onto bare soil. Here, we'll compare hydroseeding and sod's cost, time, quality, and use cases so you can decide which one is best for your property.

Price Comparison (Winner: Hydroseeding)

When looking at price alone, hydroseeding is the clear winner. Sod must be bought by the pallet which means you may end up having to buy more sod than you actually need. Sod also requires more labor to install, which increases its price as well. In most cases, sod costs up to four times more per square foot than hydroseeding services do. When you have a large property, that price difference adds up quickly.

How Hydroseeding Revitalizes Your Lawn

How Hydroseeding Revitalizes Your Lawn

Hydroseeding is a process that involves spraying your lawn with a mixture of water, seeds, fertilizer, cellulose fiber, mulch, and other treatment agents. Many homeowners are opting for hydroseeding over sod installation or hand seeding due to hydroseeding’s revitalizing properties.

Applying hydroseeding to your lawn improves its health, creates a fuller lawn, controls soil erosion, and more. Here is how hydroseeding revitalizes your lawn in Lunenburg, Leominster, Concord, and the surrounding areas.

Hydroseeding Improves the Health of Your Lawn

As the mixture goes through its natural decomposition cycle, it releases a wide range of beneficial nutrients that soak deep down into your soil and help your seeds thrive. Hydroseed is a thick mixture, creating the perfect natural weed repellent. Because hydroseeding promotes a thicker, more even lawn, there is virtually no room for weeds to sprout and grow. Fewer weeds lead to a healthier lawn that is more robust and can fight off pests, lawn diseases, and future weed growth.

Hydroseeding encourages a much deeper and stronger root establishment, which leads to a lush, dark, almost blue-green look that every homeowner craves. And because the seed mixture is sprayed on top of your soil, there is no transplanting of seeds into foreign soils and no shock involved from the process.
