Hydroseeding is a type of grass seed planting that uses high-powered sprayers and a moist blend of grass seed and another agent, like water. This method is usually meant for larger areas like farms or building sites for a lawn that can only be compared to the finest golf courses.
If you choose to hydroseed your property, you should know that this is not something that you should attempt to do on your own. You’ll need a professional’s help to figure out what type of grass is best for your lawn and a team of experts to apply it.

Benefits of Hydroseeding Your Lawn
Hydroseeding can be an extremely effective way to create a beautifully lush property without the hassle of planting by hand. Not only can it prevent soil erosion, but is often used as a solution for it as well.
It’s common to see construction sites use hydroseeding to reclaim the ground after trucks and equipment have torn up the ground. You may even see many sites ravaged by wildfire being restored through hydroseeding.
Hydroseeding Prevents Soil Erosion
Hydroseeding is the best solution to fix or prevent soil erosion, which happens when the nutrients in the soil are depleted. Soil erosion can be the result of many things even natural occurrences, including:
- Constant exposure to moisture, like heavy rainfall, flooding, and overwatering
- Wildfires, brushfires, or former fire-pit locations.
- A prolonged time without any plant life.
- Overworking the soil through foot traffic, raking, digging, and driving on it.
- Being on a steep slope, like a hillside or mountainside.
The hydroseeding mixture may have to be watered more often and will have to remain untouched until it starts to grow. But it is a much better option if you have bad luck growing grass in your backyard.
Hydroseeding is Cost-Friendly For Larger Properties
On average, hydroseeding can cost from 50 cents to a dollar per square foot, while sod costs from 1-2 dollars. This is why it’s seen as a more cost-friendly solution, but not for everyone.
Hydroseeding can be a bit costly for a small yard, but for larger properties like parks, soccer fields, and horse pastures, this is a much more budget-friendly solution. Plus, if you’re property is located on a hilltop or other kind of land elevation, this is the best method for stronger, thicker grass that won’t move because of the slope.
Easier Application with Hydroseeding
Because hydroseeding is done with a high-pressured hose, it is clearly much quicker to do than by hand. It’s also a much more efficient way to get full coverage and a thick, healthy lawn. The sprayers cover larger areas, without leaving patchy areas or overseeding.
This method also proves to grow faster than regular seeding, with your first mow being as quick as 4 weeks after planting. Plus, there’s no chance of the grass seed blowing away in the wind or washing away in the rain.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is in a Hydroseeding Mixture?
The type of grass seed used in the hydroseeding mixture will be specific to how much sun and shade that your property has, as well as the type of soil. Three types of grass are very common in Washington State, including:
- Kentucky Bluegrass
Hydroseed is also blended with water, to help it adhere to the ground. Many times, other agents will be added to further improve the grass growth. Here are some of the agents that can be blended in hydroseed.
- Lime creates a well-balanced soil for healthier grass.
- Mulch helps to retain the moisture that the seeds need for germination.
- Fertilizer to boost growth time and put nutrients into the soil.
Will I Need A Sprinkler System If I Hydroseed My Lawn?
If you do choose to hydroseed your property, we do recommend that you install a sprinkler system. While our climate is mild, nowhere in the world gets the same amount of rain every year, so a sprinkler system ensures that the lawn is always hydrated, even during dry seasons or droughts, and this will help the grass take hold, developing into robust, healthy and durable turf.
When you choose to hydroseed your lawn, one of the best preparations that you can make is to install a sprinkler system. Hydroseeding will need to be regularly watered to grow thick, green, and durable.
