"We did a complete makeover of our backyard. Our landscaper is Rock Solid Landscapes. The owner, Wade Bartlett, is a geologist. We interviewed a number of landscapers and he was the friendliest, most knowledgeable, gave us a quote that was very reasonable, easy to work with, and delivered on-time. We are thrilled at the quality of the work."

Regarding lawn, what is the difference between hydroseed and sod?

For either of these methods, proper soil preparation is absolutely vital to healthy long-term success of a lawn. Hydroseeding is a process of mixing seed, fertilizer, a tackifier (to make seed stay in place on the soil surface until it roots), and a fiber mulch base into a slurry that is sprayed over the designated lawn area. It roots quickly and forms a strong, healthy lawn, typically in about three weeks.

Sod also requires proper soil preparation. It can be walked on sooner than hydroseeded lawn in some cases, thus we are more likely to recommend sod for families with children or pets.
