Think of it as primer for your lawn

For a healthy lawn, landscapers know the importance of a properly prepared bed. And working with Cedar Hill means that your planting areas are in the best shape possible.

Soil tests help us determine how to amend the native soil and prepare it for your new lawn. We then add topsoil and organic material, such as peat moss or compost, as necessary, tilling it thoroughly so the material mixes in well with the native soil. This allows the lawn's roots to penetrate deeply for maximum drought tolerance.

Most lawns respond well to mildly acidic soil, but this ultimately depends on the type of grass and your climate. For more information on how we can give you a greener, healthier lawn, contact one of our landscape specialists at (732) 469-1400

We offer the following types of turf establishment techniques:

  • Hydroseeding
  • Brillion Seeding
  • Straw/Hay Mulching
  • Mulch Anchoring: Tacking & or Crimping

Brillion Seeding

This seeding method is more exact than any other seed-placement method. A tractor-drawn brillion seeder disperses seed evenly, and provides the greatest level of soil-to-seed contact. While hydroseeding is the most common seeding method, brillion seeding is perfect for new lawns, golf courses, athletic fields, or any new open-field seeding application when you require precision and perfectly consistent results.

Straw/Hay Mulching

Our power mulcher can handle up to 20 tons of straw or hay mulch per hour - ideal for both small and large jobs where speed and cost are critical.

Mulch Anchoring

Minimize mulch loss from wind or water using tacking as a mulch- anchoring technique.

Tacking uses liquid mulch binders to anchor hay or straw mulches.  These vegetable- based tackifiers are natural organic ingredients that act as "glue" to hold the straw in place. Tack is applied by the hydroseeder along with wood fiber mulch and water. Wood fiber mulch acts as an additional binder, and with its harmless temporary green dye, provides our installers with a visual guide to assure uniform coverage.

Crimping anchors straw and hay mulch into the soil with a tractor-drawn crimp-disc machine. The vertical-standing mulch fibers, in rows six inches apart, form a fence that protects the other mulch fibers from wind. Each vertical-standing straw is available to carry moisture into the soil and aid in seed germination.
