Hydromulch is less than sod because the property owner
has elected to grow the grass and not to pay the sod company
for growing, weeding, palletizing, and shipping.

to Thickness Of Material Applied
Hydromulch success and pricing is in direct proportion
to the quality and quantity of mulch material applied to the
area. Fairway Greens has the experience to put the correct amount

Grass is a very important part of your landscape. Not only
is it visually appealing, also environmentally necessary. The
average size lawn produces enough oxygen for a family of four
to breathe. At the same time it removes carbon dioxide, dust,
dirt, and other air pollution from our air. Grass reduces soil
erosion and cools the air around us. Turf grass is 90% water,
but only a small part of the plant is above ground.
is instant grass. The sod comes in squares or rolls of grass
with a root and top vegetation already formed. The sod is grass
that has been removed from a farm and put on pallets ready for
is the process of taking grass sprigs (pieces of grass with roots), mulch,fertilizer,
tactifier,and water. This mix is placed in a machine and spray
under pressure to form a uniform application.
Hydromulch/Hydroseed consists of the mixing fiber mulch, grass
seed, fertilizer and/or other agriculture approved additives
(one is a tactifier or bonding agent) to water. This mix is placed
in a machine to form a homogeneous slurry. The slurry is sprayed
under pressure to form a uniform application over the soil. Hydromulching
is, a term used by many contractrators in the Southern parts
of the U.S., when this slurry is 35 lbs. of mulch material or
more per 1000 SF (1500 lbs. per acre). Anything less is called
Hydroseeding in Southern U.S. Hydroseeding is use in the North
for all thickness of Hydroplanting. Hydroplanting is a new term
to represent all hydrolic planting.
Wood fiber is superior to paper because it will not totally
form a solid covering. Wood Fiber has very small openings between the
fibers to allow water, air, and nutrients to reach the seeds.
This allows extremely thick applications to resist soil erosion
and may be put on at a rate to slopes heavy enough to not to
require erosion control blankets. Only wood fiber contains natural
organic lignin and sugars which add soil nutrients as it biodegrades.
Pure uncontaminated wood fiber holds ten times its weight in
moisture enhancing grass survival
Paper must be applied at Hydroseed rates. When applied at
Hydromulching rates it forms a crust that smothers the seed and
germination will fail. Therefore paper can only be applied at
very low rates which only has minimal resistance to erosion.l.
Paper is recycled newspaper and contains metal ink pigments.
Hydrosprigging vs. Hydroseeding vs. Seeding Hydrosprigging is using actual
piece of grass, therefore you have growth the same day it is
applied. Hydrosprigging allows you to plant grasses that otherwise
you would have to pay the high price of sod. It also allows for
a faster establishment with less water.
Hydroseeding is better than just seeding.
The mixture of fertilizer, tactifier, mulch and seed all soaked
in water creates a process that germinates faster and is applied
more evenly than seeding. Seeding can take several days of watering
to reach the same stage of seed saturation as the other process
is applied at.
Hydromulching, because it is applied
at heavier rates is superior Hydroseeding. Mulch will retain
10 times its weight in water. Therefore mulch applied at a heavy
rate will result in large amounts of water retainage at the same
time resist erosion due to bad weather. Hydromulch with a tactifier
can successfully provide erosion control to slopes and flat areas
with the greatest success over seed or Hydroseeding. Hydromulch
and Hydroseeding forms a almost perfect environment for germination.
Fairway Greens uses either 100% wood . This product is superior in
erosion control and seed germination. A tactifier is included
in most of our applications.
FERTILIZER: A 18-18-18 fertilizer is used unless
a different ratio is requested.
In the Dallas Ft. Worth area the seeds commonly sprayed for home
lawns are: common Bermuda, improved common Bermuda, Buffalo,
Rye (annual and perennial), and Fescue. Wildflowers and other
mixes can be used for special needs. Fairway Greens only uses
the best seed available. For variety and questions contact me
At what rates
do you recommend? We will spray to customer specifications,
but will recommend Hydromulching at rates for the greatest success.
This is a investment and you do get what you pay for. Almost all of our Hydromulching
is sprayed at 50 - 55 Lbs. of WOOD FIBER MULCH, 10 Lbs. of fertilizer,
and 1-2 lbs. tactifier per 1000 sq. ft. (about 2000 Lbs. of fiber per
acre). This will create the greatest possibility of success for
our customers. Thicker rates are used for slopes and ditches.
What advantages are there to
the Hydromulch applied by Fairway Greens?
Wood fiber is produced from
pure uncontaminated raw lumber chips,and is free of lead paint
or varnish contaminants---we use only top quality fiber, the
Wood fiber holds 10 times its weight in moisture

Wood fiber as it biodegrades adds natural
organic sugars and lignin nutrients to the soil

How long before
I have grass? Several factors determine the time
of germination of grass. The type of grass, season, and care
provided by the customer all determine the out come. In most
cases the grass will germination in 7 to 14 days and will be
ready to mow in 3-4 weeks. For more exact information please
EMAIL Fairway Greens
with the type of grass and time of year you are considering
of your new lawn - seed, sod, Hydroseed, Hydrosprig, or Hydromulch
Mowing your lawn -
as soon as the new lawn is 1 1/2 - 2 inches high for Bermuda
and St. Augustine, 3 inches for Fescue and rye it is time for
the first mowing. Hybrid Bermudas and bent grass need to be cut
shorter at 1/2 to 1 inch. Subsequent cuttings should be done
often and no more than 1/3 of the grass remove at one time. For
different types of grasses please contact Fairway
Weed Control -
This is very
serious --- do not use weed control produces on new young grass.
The grass at this stage may react severely to the chemicals and
dye. Weeds invade the grass all the time and you may want to
hand pull or spot treat the lawn but never use weed and feed,
pre-emergent, or treat the total lawn with killer at least for
one year of growth. The best defense on weeds is a healthy lawn.
Proper mowing, using quality fertilizer, and water creates the
best lawn .
Watering - The establishment of your
new lawn requires water. The Hydromulch, Hydrosprig, Hydroseed,
or sod is in place and waiting. For Hydromulch, Hydrosprig or
Hydroseed it must be kept moist at all times the first 14 days.
The frequency and amount of water applied will be determined
by soil composition, temperature, grass, and equipment used to
water. Most Hydromulch, Hydrosprig, or Hydroseed need 2-3 times
a day watering to ensure it is kept moist. The grass should at
first have frequent light sprinklings. If this is not possible
soak your lawn until run off is just detected in the morning
and again in the evening. This process should be done for the
first 2 - 21/2 weeks then cut back to once a day until first
mowing. Don't let the mulch dry out it will die. Sod is saturated
once or twice a day for the same time period. After the first
mowing water for all types should be cut back on the number of
times but increase on the amount of water. Slowly cut back to
a point of long but infrequent watering to get the roots as deep
Fertilizing - Fertilizer is provided
in all the types of installation. The sod farm fertilizes heavily,
it does not need any additional for about three weeks after installation.
Hydromulch, Hydroseed, and Hydrosprig will need to be fertilized
within three weeks of installation or the first cutting which
ever is sooner. The initial fertilizing for all the processes
should be a quick release type. After the first application,
use a slow release balance formula to help create a healthy and
