The terms “hydro-Turf” , “hydro-mulching” , “hydro-Seeding ” have been used to define an improved grass seeding processes. Grasses can be planted by using living pieces of grass instead of seed in the tank, These grass sprigs are harvested from our sod farm’s. At this time, the only grasses that are commonly “hydro-sprigged” are warm season grasses such as the numerous varieties of hybrid Bermuda grass.
More varieties of grasses can be seeded for special applications such as Slope Stabilisation, Dust Suppression, Forestation . Some of these grasses require less water or fertilizer. Some can be mowed extremely close, making them ideal for putting greens. Some can thrive in more shade than others. Some can survive under conditions of heavy foot traffic punishment. These improved and highly desirable varieties of grasses are becoming more available. Most of these improved varieties must be propagated vegetatively.
“Hydro-sprigging” is becoming more widely used to plant grasses vegetatively at substantially less costs than solid sodding or hand Dibbling ot in Areas which is Difficult to plant manually . The chemistry and technology are emerging making hydro-sprigging a highly reliable way to plant these new grasses. The Five-S HybroTurf is a very affordable machine capable of this “Vegetative Planting Technology”.
