a way to get a Lush Thick

Quality Hydromulch Provided by Fairway Greens:
to 1/2 the price of sod
Erosion Control due to Thickness Of Material Applied
- 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.
- 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
to control even the steepest slope, keeping the soil were is
belongs even under stormy conditions.
Wood Fiber used
- Virgin wood fiber out performs paper product in seed
germination and erosion control.
Professionals produce Lush Grass with the first application
- Fairway Greens has experience in many areas of the
landscape industry including but not limited to Hydromulch, landscaping,
sprinkler system, dirt work, fences, and drainage. With this
experience Fairway Greens can provide a complete installation
with all the steps connecting in perfect harmony with superior
results over other contractors.
environmentally safe and effective way to establish
- Hydromulch is safe to pets, children, and the environment.
It is made from recycled wood.

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 when this slurry is 35 lbs. of mulch material or more per
1000 SF (1500 lbs. per acre). Anything less is called Hydroseeding.

Mulches - Wood
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
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.
Hydromulch, 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.
and Methods Do you use?
Fairway Greens uses the Conwed product line of mulch. We use
either 100% wood or a enviro blend which is 90% wood and 10%
paper. Both products are superior in their erosion control and
seed germination. A tactifier is included in most of our applications.
A 17-17-17 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 specification
but recommend Hydromulching. Almost all of our Hydromulching
is sprayed at 45-50 Lbs. of wood fiber mulch, 20 Lbs. of fertilizer,
and tactifier per 1000 sq. ft. (about 2000 Lbs. of fiber per
acre). This will create the greatest possibility of success for
What advantages are there to

pure uncontaminated raw lumber chips,and is free of lead paint
or varnish contaminants---we use only top quality fiber, the

organic sugars and lignin nutrients to the soil
- Superior erosion control and germination
performance due to the rate of application we recommend---- design

the right seed for the area and explain maintenance in detail.
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

After several weeks it naturally break
down and adds nutrient to the soil adding in the establishment

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
