THE FASTEST, EASIEST AND
LOWEST COST WAY TO SEED
popularity of hydro seeding is skyrocketing. Customers notice that you
spray it on, and before you know it a beautiful lush lawn is
growing. Landscapers find that their customers love it, and it
helps solve many of the problems they face.
There are reasons hydro seeding works so well. The seed
is suspended in a nutrient rich slurry. The contact of the seed with the
water in machine triggers the germination cycle. The mulch layer seals in
the moisture, and holds the soil in place. The seed is at an ideal depth
for good results. The conditions are right to produce a lush green lawn in
very short time.
Turbo Turf Hydro Seeding systems can greatly lower labor costs.
One person can operate a Turbo Turf Hydro
Seeding System simultaneously applying hydromulch, seed, fertilizer,
tackifier and water.
The use of straw is eliminated. Hydro mulch is easier to store and
transport than straw. It does not produce dust during application. It will not blow
off, and does not need to be removed. Hydro seeding mulch does not contain
weed seed as straw does. It won’t cause a loss of nitrogen as it
decomposes as straw does. Hydro seeding has a neat green appearance that
is far more attractive than straw. It is easy to understand why hydro
seeding is becoming the method of choice of consumers and professionals
seeding is a one step application. One person can easily hydro seed using
a Turbo Turf System. Mulch, seed and fertilizer are evenly
distributed in the sprayed material. It is fast and easy to do. Irregular
areas are a breeze. Hillsides, banks and other areas that can be a problem
with other seeding methods are easy to do with a Turbo Turf Hydro Seeding
system. It is an ideal system for landscape contractors and anyone
with seeding to do.
Any seed used in lawn or roadside applications can be used in a Turbo
Turf Hydro Seeding System. Any grass that can be grown from seed can be
planted as well as wildflowers and crown vetch. Seeds used for hydro
seeding do not need to be anything special. Many people experience an
increase in germination rates with hydro seeding, however, this increase
is not enough to suggest using less seed. Seed can be pre-germinated for
even faster growth. One easy system is to soak the seed overnight in clear
water in a container such as a garbage can.
Any type of fertilizer can be used. Liquid, water
soluble or granular fertilizers may all be used with a Turbo Turf system.
Granular fertilizer is the most commonly used. The unit does not dissolve
the granules. It will suspend them and blend the granules evenly in the
mix. The use of lime is not recommended. If the soil ph needs to be
changed a liquid lime product such as New Cal is the best choice. Granular
or pelletized lime can be used if necessary.
Tackifiers are used to help hold the material in place
on hillsides especially during rainy weather. Any tackifier may be used in
a Turbo Turf system. The system can also be used to apply tackifer or a
tackifier mulch mix over straw to hold it in place.
There are two basic types of mulch. Wood fiber mulch is
made from wood by-products. Cellulose fiber mulch is made from recycled
news print. We recommend the cellulose mulch. It is less expensive, easier
to use and has the same result. Average cost for a bale of cellulose mulch
is $ 7.00. Coverage is approximatiely 2000 square feet per bale. Recently
pelletized mulches such as Jet Spray have been introduced. They are
a combination of paper and wood fiber and may be simply poured into the
machines greatly reducing loading time.
Many other products can be used in the mix. Some of the
more common additives are Co-Polymers
that are used when water may be a
problem. Co-polymers hold 400 times their weight in water and slowly
release it to the new seedlings. Locking Fibers (shown in photo on
the right) may also be used. Locking
fibers are made from crimped polyester. They will disperse through the
load, and when sprayed on interlock to form a type of spray-on erosion
control blanket. Other products to stimulate growth, or to enhance the
color may also be used.
Turbo Turf Hydro Seeding Systems can be easily made into a multipurpose
system. Adding a seed and spray option to the units makes it into a turf
sprayer that will do a great job of applying chemicals in lawn
applications. Addition of the boom to the pull type units allow them to be
used as both a hydro seeding system and a lawn sprayer.
