The hydro seeding method is basically done by spraying the seed that wants to be planted on the land. For the sod farmer, they usually plant vegetable or grass seed on their farm. The vegetable or grass seed will be spray along with fertilizer, mulch, green color dye, and water. They will use a special tool which could spray the mixture to their farm with high pressure. This will allow the mixture to enter deeply into the soil which will then make the vegetable or grass seed grows better. This method also easy to do since the farmer only needs to spray the vegetable or grass seed to the farm that they want to grow it, thus they will finish the planting process faster compared to the traditional method.
Even though this procedure has been invented since a long time ago, but it is still used even today. The one who uses this method is the professional grass planter because of the need to plant grass in a large area as fast as possible. So to do that, they will use more modern equipment which will make the method better and can be done easier.
