Hydroseed vs Sod

Creating a luscious, green lawn is the desire of every homeowner. When faced with a barren patch of dirt, it can be hard to imagine creating a lawn you can enjoy for years to come. Let Northwest Bulldozing & Hydroseeding assist you in the creation of a beautiful lawn in a short time.

Hydroseeding requires less labor than sod. Many homeowners consider sod to be the quickest way to create a perfect lawn. However, laying sod is a long, hard process involving hours of hard labor and takes daily watering. In addition to the physical aspects of sod, long-term success of sod is not a guarantee. Sod may allow you to create a green lawn in one day, but many times the sod does not take, especially around the edges. This results in a lawn that looks like it was pieced together, complete with lines and dead spaces. Sod can also be prohibitively expensive.

Hydroseeding is less expensive than sod. Hydroseeding is 75% cheaper than sod if self–installed, and even greater savings when you have sod installed for you. As an added bonus, hydroseeding does not require any hard physical labor for you. The hydroseed mixture is sprayed onto bare ground and when it is kept damp and warm, hydroseed mixtures encourage growth and germination in much less time than hand-seeding a lawn. With the warm summer weather of western Washington, hydroseeding generally creates a brilliant green lawn that will be ready to be mowed in 3 to 4 weeks. Hydroseeding is an economical alternative to sod and traditional seeding. It costs less, is just as effective, and results in a lawn that you can be proud of for years to come.

When you find yourself in need of a new lawn, consider hydroseeding instead of sod or seeding the lawn yourself. You will save time, labor, and money by allowing Northwesr Bulldozing & Hydroseeding to assist you in creating a lawn that is grown from seed in the variety you want.
