HYDROSEEDING FOR SCHOOLS, PARKS AND ESTATES
Schools, Parks Departments, Municipalities, Estates and others with ground to maintain find a Turbo Turf Hydro Seeding System a valuable tool in their equipment arsenal. Many schools have a lot of ground to maintain and a Turbo Turf Hydroseeder can help make that job easier for your grounds department.
The smaller units such as the HS-100 and HS-150 have been a popular choice for schools. These units are very powerful yet inexpensive and easy to use. No matter whether the need is a small construction project, repairing damage or redoing an athletic field. Or repairing damage from traffic where students cut across a lawn. Many schools chose with more ground to see chose a larger unit but whatever the need Turbo Turf makes a unit that fits that need.
One issue schools face when maintaining athletic fields is concerned, is that it is often a problem getting on them to repair them, because they are nearly always in use. The ability to zip on to a field and quickly spray a mix of seed, mulch and fertilizer, and to have grass up fast is a big Turbo Turf plus.
Turbo Turf’s small pull type units can easily be used for more than just hydroseeding. When seeding is not needed they double as a watering unit and are really useful for watering flowers or plants in areas where it is difficult to reach with a hose. The can also be set up to double as a lawn sprayer. They can be equipped with a boom for spraying open areas or with a hose reel and lawn gun for more controlled spraying. Many Turbo Turf units can also be easily adapted to become an ice control sprayer to deice roads, parking lots and steps in the winter. Liquid anti-icing and de-icing have become a popular way to make parking lots, sidewalks and roads safer in the winter.
Any Turbo Turf Hydro Seeding system can be equipped with the “Seed & Spray” option. This option includes 150′ of sprayer hose on a hose reel, a chemlawn style gun and a strainer. To convert to a sprayer, it is only necessary to change a quick coupler. The “Seed & Spray” option is almost like having two machines for not much more than the price of one. It works great as a turf sprayer. It does not however have the pressure required for tree spraying or deep root feeding.
Another popular option for making the pull type Turbo Turf Hydro Seeding Systems a dual purpose unit is the spray boom. This option allows the unit to be used like a regular boom type turf sprayer to maintain grounds. It can be used with fertilizer, herbicide, insecticide, fungicide or any other standard spray materials. This option is available for the HS-50-P, the HS-100-P and the HS-150-P. The boom may also be combined with the Seed and Spray unit to provide both a boom and a gun.
The list of schools who have found a Turbo Turf Hydro Seeding System a valuable tool for maintaining their campus is endless but includes such schools as Dartmouth, Princeton, Penn State University and Cornell University.
