Traditional methods for starting lawns include laying down turf or sod, as well as growing a lawn from seed. Hydromulching (sometimes called “hydroseeding“) is a quicker and less expensive alternative for residential lawns and virtually all commercial applications including golf courses, highways, and anywhere that traditional methods aren’t practical.
Reed Hydromulching, Inc. provides multi-state services for hydroseeding using advanced equipment at competitive prices for Texas residents and businesses from San Antonio to Austin, Waco, and Dallas-Fort Worth.
What is the Hydromulch Process?
The process of hydroseeding utilizes a combination of slurry, seed, and mulch that’s sprayed across the ground that has been prepped for application. We use a tank to transport the slurry to your location, much like a traditional truck might transport dry seed.
Here is a small selection of properties that can benefit from the application of hydromulch grass:
- Commercial job sites
- Golf courses
- Residential lots
Additionally, hydromulch seeding is an ideal solution for areas where laying turf or sod presents some difficulties.
Did You Know? If you own a very large piece of land, you’ll see a lower hydromulching price than using other traditional forms of planting.
What are the Advantages of Hydromulch Service?
As mentioned above, there’s a good chance your hydromulch cost will prove more economical than other methods, but hydromulch is also a terrific option for storm drain protection and sediment retention.
Additionally, hydromulch grass also helps with dust control around sand and roads, as well as for soil stabilization purposes.
What Grass Should I Get for My Residential Home?
One of the most popular grasses for the average homeowner is Bermuda grass, and it’s common in Texas because it grows well in the bright sun. It grows fast, is resistant to damage under heavy traffic, and doesn’t create a substantial number of mower clippings. Also, Bermuda grass is dense and beautiful while also offering an impressive tolerance to drought.
If you choose Bermuda grass, you’ll be able to choose from four different varieties including Common, Blackjack, Sahara, and Princess. Each of these varieties has different traits, and we’ll help you decide which is best for your lawn depending on things like expected traffic levels and how much sun the grass will get each day.
Another option for your residential lawn is Buffalo grass, which also features a variety of advantages but does require a higher initial investment. This native Texas grass grows slowly, but once it’s established in the ground, it requires very little maintenance. You don’t have to mow it that often, and it doesn’t require a significant amount of fertilizer.

What Can I Expect with Commercial Hydromulch Services?
If you own a golf course or a large commercial area, hydromulch in Texas is an economical way to get the property green. There is a variety of mixes available from turf & native grasses to wildflowers and mixes designed for erosion control.
The process of hydromulching a commercial property features a four-part slurry. Components of this special blend include:
- 100% Wood Fiber Matrix
- A Fertilizer Component Tailored to the Application Site
- Hydromulch Fiber to Ensure Uniform Seed Distribution
- Tackifier to Ensure Uniform Seed to Soil Contact
In addition to hydromulching, another option for large areas is drill seeding, which uses a tractor and a special attachment to place the seeds in the soil at a predetermined depth. This process keeps costs down because the process doesn’t feature the wood fiber of standard hydromulching.
