Matching on Angi
Lawn & Landscaping
Great experience, great team! I wasted a lot of time contacting other landscape companies which had a hydroseeding reference on Angie's list but either had never performed this service or had discontinued it. Since we were arranging to seed in November, I was beginning to expect we wouldn't find any one to do the job. So I was quite surprised when TC Hydroseeding was not only still in the business, but very responsive and willing to get the job done before inclement weather the following week. They are a small business run by young guys with a lot of integrity. They we able to answer all of my questions about hydroseeding in the fall. Normally fall seeding has a very low germination rate (40%) due to seeds being redistributed by wind, water and birds. But hydroseeding pastes seed into place with a fertilized fibrous mulch mixture resulting in more than 80% germination. They were also able to put down multiple varieties of grass on the same service call, which was exactly what we needed. Their minimum charge was $600 for 2,500 square feet. Though we had less than this area to do, we decided to commit. Our landscape project which was just completed left us with amended soil on the boulevard and a putting green size lawn in the front yard. We also had built up soil to create a slope on the west of our property, which we did not want to see eroded by spring. We also had installed a retaining wall to the east and in the process tore up the empty lot there. Hard scape features would make maintaining grasses to the east and west a pain, so we had them put down a No-Mow mixture. They showed on time, were incredibly friendly, careful not to spray outside the areas requested and didn't disturb anything with their significantly large and long rubber hoses (they even have a canon mounted atop the truck for fields). The only draw back was that for the first few weeks the color was almost turquoise. The neighbors were very curious about this color, so we were happy when it faded to a more natural pine green. It's still winter and a very warm and wet one at that, but we've seen minimal erosion so far. I'll update this review in the spring after we have growth to report on final success.
