Frequently Asked Questions

Fast Grass provides services such as;
- Hydroseeding (a seeding process using various mulches, seed, fertilize and polymer binder)
- Dust Suppression
- Erosion Management/Revegetation (Native Seed)
There are so many factors to consider when answering this question such as seed, season, irrigation or dryland, topsoil quality.
Generally seed will germinate, under normal conditions, within 10-21 days. You would expect a fully established lawn, ready for its first mow within 5-8 weeks after hydroseeding.
Fast grass love working with clients to help them achieve their dream lawn. Fast Grass specialists will work with you to identify the best hydroseeding lawn mix that will best suit;
- your location
- irrigation/dry land
- shade v’s sun coverage
- soil pH and condition
- and any other specialized requirements that you have.
Fast Grass will either provide an onsite quote or one over the phone.
Once you have agreed to the quote, Fast Grass will communicate with you regarding any soil preparation requirements (including irrigation) and the timing of hydroseeding, working in with your lifestyle and weather conditions.
One thing we do well is communication. We at Fast Grass pride ourselves on clear and constant communication with our clients.
Naturally, the best time to hydroseed absolutely depends on your climate. The ideal time is when it is cool but not cold, and you are expecting a reasonable amount of rainfall. The rain will help reduce the costs of watering. Autumn and spring are widely accepted as the best times of year to install a lawn. Installing a lawn in early Autumn gives the lawn time to establish before winter sets in. The lawn will go dormant in the winter and then have the rain and cooler temperatures of spring to give it a good start before our hot Australian summer.
Similarly, taking advantage of spring rains and cooler temperatures makes for very good growing conditions. The disadvantage is that if spring is followed by a hot summer, it may take more watering for the first year to keep it alive and thriving in the summer.
The cost to establish Fast Grass is considerably cheaper.
