Today the Hydroseeding contractor came and sprayed a small area in our back yard that I’ve had trouble getting grass to grow. As you can see in the picture the area that is bright green was sprayed with a combination of seed, water, fertilizer and paper mulch (recycled newspaper).
I prepared the area by raking it to loosen the top layer of soil and remove small rocks and twigs. It only took them about 10 minutes to do the job. I lucked out by having a neighbor that was having the entire back yard done so they were willing to spray my small 500 sq. ft. area.
Hydroseeding ranges from about 5 cents to 10 cents a square foot. My small 500 sq. ft. area only cost me $25 so I thought it was well worth it. I didn’t take a picture of the truck today but it was pretty similar to the one in the attached photo. Hopefully we’ll have some nice grass in a few weeks and then I’ll be sold on hydroseeding.
