Hydro Seeding

Hydro SeedingNo landscaping project is complete without grass. Everyone likes their yard or garden to be lush with vibrant green grass, neatly trimmed and beautiful. There are many different ways to plant grass in the soil; some are age-old methods, like hand-sowing. Methods like sod installation are expensive and sometimes, the grass doesn’t take.

We at Secret Garden Designs generally recommend hydroseeding to our customers. We've worked on lawns in Moscow, Scranton, Clarks Summit, Dalton, Mayfield, Dunmore and Montdate. We also serve Customers in Monroe, and Luzerne County.

What is Hydroseeding?

Hydroseeding is a process by which a mixture of different grass seed types, mulch, water and fertilizers is mixed together and sprayed onto the prepared and loosened soil. The mixture creates an ideal environment for the grass to grow and can lead to a vibrantly green, beautiful lawn. Hydroseeding is a cost effective method, especially on large lawns and gardens.

Advantages of Hydroseeding

There are several advantages to Hydroseeding.

Hydro Seeding
  • Adaptability: One of the primary advantages of Hydroseeding is that you can choose a particular blend of grass type. You can choose a more resilient species or something that thrives better in shade, etc.

  • Cost: Hydroseeding cost is nearly one fourth of the cost of sod installation and it many times proves more successful than sod.

  • Attractiveness: Again, you can pick a particular type of grass seed that’s more attractive. If you wish for finer blades, or darker shades, etc., you can choose that type of grass.

  • Disease resistance: The advantage of blending different seeds is that you have more a resilient grass in the end. The mixture of different species ensures that a disease can’t spread on a wide scale. This makes for easier lawn care.

  • Health: Since the grass in grown naturally, in soil that’s been treated with natural and organic fertilizers, the general health of the grass is better and it long lasting.


Hydroseeding is a carefully planned and thought-out process. It takes time and care to ensure that the grass is planted and grows properly.

Hydro Seeding
  • We can begin the process only after the irrigation and drainage system are already installed.

  • The soil is smoothened out, all debris and stones on the surface are generally removed so that there’s an even bed for the top layer of soil to be placed on.

  • It is best of have the edging done before hand because doing it after the seeding can be detrimental to the growth of the grass.

  • Then a layer of soil mixed with compost and other such natural lawn fertilizer is placed on the ground.

  • We then treat the soil with lime, which restores the pH balance in the soil and ensures healthy grass growth.

  • The Hydroseeding mixture is sprayed onto the surface. It would take about two months to the lawn to develop completely, though grass is visible in around 5 to 7 days.

Hydroseeding ensures steady growth and green lawns. If you wish to know more, you can call Secret Garden Designs on 570-842-2600.
