For many homes, businesses, and public spaces, there’s a certain appeal to an instant lawn. Sod is a popular choice for landscaping projects because it’s fast, instantly gratifying, and – if you get your grass from a respected Northern California sod supplier – quality turf. But some homeowners are less impressed with instant curb appeal and more drawn to easy, effective erosion control. Hydroseed establishes quickly, costs less initially than sod, and offers unbeatable erosion control for Northern California homeowners.
Why Choose Hydroseeding for Erosion Control?
- Hydroseed protects the ground from soil erosion immediately after installation
- Hydroseed helps conserve moisture in the soil
- Hydroseed provides both long term and short term soil erosion control
Fall Installation of Hydroseed
Hydroseed establishes much more quickly than seeded lawns, typically germinating within 2-6 weeks, depending on the season and the amount of moisture in the soil. We recommend applying hydroseed in the fall months. The cooler weather allows plants to develop a deeper, more expansive root system, strengthening grass for the winter season. Spraying hydroseed in September, October, and even November frees landscapers from constant watering and upkeep without exposing new grass to the harshness of winter weather. Hydroseeding Northern California lawns in the fall also decreases the chances that weeds from the surrounding soil will infiltrate and infest new lawns. Most weeds that creep into new hydroseed do not establish well enough to survive through spring.
