T.O.M.S. offers a wide array of residential and commercial outdoor services with a specialty in hydroseeding, landscaping, and erosion control.
- The hydroseeding process begins by mixing cellulose fiber or wood mulch, a standard high quality grass seed (custom seed by request), fertilizer and water in the application tank of the hydroseeding machine. The mixed slurry is then applied as a controlled spray through a hose from the tank onto the ground. The process is gentle and does not disrupt the grade or landscaping of the yard. Once the slurry is in place, the material boosts initial growth by creating a micro environment specifically developed for the germination of seed. Results are quick with a high germination rate.
- Once the hydroseeding is complete, you must take care to keep the mulch moist at all times for the first 2 weeks to achieve a healthy germination and growth. A light irrigation with water at least 2 to 3 times a day for the first 2 weeks and tapering down to 1 to 2 waterings a day for the next 2 weeks is optimal. Take care to ensure the lawn does not dry out and/or puddles do not form on the lawn.
- Hydroseeding is one of the most effective ways to achieve a dense and healthy lawn at a fraction of the cost when compared to alternative methods such as sod.
