Hydroseeding typically cost less 1/3 the price of sod. Purchasing sod is expensive, even if you know how to lay it yourself. If you can't lay it yourself, the labor charges make sod extremely expensive. Hydroseed will cost 70%-80% less than sod and give you an equally beautiful lawn.
Have you ever seen a sodded lawn with seams showing? Or watched a hand-seeded lawn grow in patchy and sparse? And what about slopes? Hydroseed creates an evenly covered area that forms a crust to hold seed in place and retain water and fertilizer. The result is a full, lush lawn. Hydroseeding can be very effective for hillsides and sloping lawns to help with erosion control and quick planting.
