- Superior seed to soil contact for better establishment and washout protection
- Prevents erosion and protects against wind and water in exposed areas
- Even seed distribution of size and type – perfect for wildflower or species rich areas
- Soil stabilisation on bunkers, pond edges, banks and along watercourses
- Provides unrivaled erosion control
- Optimal durability for bunkers and greens when used in combination with Futerra TRM
- More cost effective than turf
- 100% organic and biodegradable
- Ideal for steep banks or inaccessible areas
Why use hydroseeding on a golf course?
Hydroseeding is a fast and cost effective way of laying grass compared to turf, so golf courses can get ready for play quickly and cheaply. It’s easy to apply the grass slurry to the slopes on a golf course too, so you can easily seed hard to reach areas on a regular basis.
What grass seeds do golf courses use?
Chewings fescue and slender creeping red fescue are the primary types of grass seeds utilised on golf courses.
These species have shown excellent performance when nitrogen is applied at low or moderate levels. Also, due to their lower susceptibility to diseases, incorporating these grasses may lead to a decreased dependence on fungicides in golf course maintenance.
