Determine approximately how many square feet you need to apply loam to. Measure the length and width of the area, then multiply together to determine the total square footage. Example 100' x 30' area is 3,000 square feet.

For fresh soil, we recommend 2-4" deep.

If you need help calculating the area, please call us- we are glad to help.  Once you calculate your area, please contact us for pricing.

Pro-Turf Offers Professional Power Raking Services 

for Proper Soil Preparation 

-Proper soil preparation is crucial to the final results of your hydroseed.  

-Sure, hydroseed can technically grow "anywhere", but to get it to grow into a thick, lush, emerald green lawn that is the envy of the neighborhood is the goal.  

-The existing root system should be removed from the area to be seeded via rototiller, harley rake, power rake, Bobcat etc.  

-We do not advise spraying the existing root system with Round-Up or a similar herbicide to kill off the weeds. We advise in removing that root system completely & keeping the chemicals out of the soil.

-This is the perfect time to fill any low spots or dips in your yard

-Any drainage or pitch issues should be addressed at this time.

-Now is the ideal time to install an Underground Sprinkler System to protect the investment in your lawn. Pro-Turf installs Sprinkler Systems for both commercial & residential clients.

-Visit our website: for more information on our Automatic Sprinkler Systems. 

-Freshly screened loam/topsoil should be spread, graded & finish raked.  

-The soil should be loose & soft to where you can easily make a footprint in it.

-You do not want the soil to be hard & compact prior to seeding.  This will not allow the seed to properly germinate & set root in the soil.

-At this point your soil is ready to be hydroseeded. Give us a call and we can get you onto the schedule within 24-48 hours typically. (978) 957-8873 or contact us here.
