Here they share a tip on RTF Water Saver Canada Open for Business in Vancouver: 

 

RTF Water Saver Canada is Open for Business in Vancouver

There’s no doubt about it, homeowners and landscapers alike in Western Canada want new eco-safe solutions when it comes to lawn care.

This is why RTF Water Saver Canada, distributors of RTF Water Saver Grass Seed, are becoming more active in the West, and now have a new locale in Vancouver to conduct even more business with consumers eager to make a positive difference for the environment.

RTF stands for Rhizomatous Tall Fescue, and is now the rave right across the country.

Just ask Monty Dobson, the owner of Rapid Lawn Landscape Solutions and Erosion Control in White City, SK, who says that the new RTF Water Saver Grass Seed “is the best in the west.”

“For the past few years I have been trying all sorts of different seed products out there, but they didn’t do what they claimed to do and they took forever to establish,” says Dobson. “My customers in the end were not happy, and in business this is not a good thing. So, I recently did some research and discovered information about RTF Water Saver Grass Seed, and the rest is history.”

Dobson says his company has used the new RTF Water Saver Grass Seed for a large number of residential and commercial products. All his customers are more than pleased with the results.

“For a seed it sure does some amazing things,” says Dobson. “It germinates and emerges very quickly. RTF Water Saver Grass Seed makes a lawn look like a sod lawn.”

 

 

Dobson feels that this new seed is the wave of the future for Western Canada. While a pesticide ban may soon become a reality in Saskatchewan, RTF is one step ahead of the game for his company and others. As well, RTF is beneficial from a water conservation standpoint as the roots of the seed go as deep as six feet, so it’s more of a water sipper.

“This is an aggressive grass seed: it chokes out weeds and insects hate it. It’s a great fit around here. With using RTF Water Saver Grass Seed, it means using less pesticides and less water. It’s innovative, indeed.” 

He adds, “I think RTF has so much to offer. Sure, sod farms are great. But lawns I am prepping are going to look nicer with a seed like RTF. It's environmentally friendly too and will be a hit in the West.”

The seed is also getting plenty of media attention. Carson Arthur, renowned landscape architect, just recommended that Canadians should use this new seed during his recent broadcast on CityLine TV Talk Show ‘How to Save Water and Cash in Your Garden’. RTF Water Saver Grass Seed was also recently featured as a latest and greatest must have product by Owen Reeves, a gardening expert on the Marilyn Denis Show (CTV).

Ryan Streatch, National Sales Agent and Spokesperson for RTF Water Saver Canada, is elated now to have a strong presence in the West.

“Western Canadians are looking for new solutions in a more hyper-environmental world,” he says. “While new environmental regulations exist in the lawn care industry right across Canada, RTF Water Waver Grass Seed serves as a new and viable solution.”

He then adds, “In our pesticide-free environment, consumers are looking for products that offer resilience to insects and disease. RTF's high content of endophyte helps reduce damage caused by pests. Bugs do not like it, but lawns and sports fields respond well and stay healthy.” 

Streatch recently even launched a new campaign to educate Canadians on the new solutions out there. Called Save Our Lawns, the campaign is on Facebook as a voice for homeowners and professionals to engage and be informed. Professionals in the landscape industry have already joined Streatch’s cause and they too want to educate homeowners on new lawn solutions, including RTF. Green and healthy lawns after all do play a very critical part in our everyday life. Not only in our peace-of-mind, but also in safety, economic and eco-benefits; from C02 sequestration, water filtration to energy savings.

Here they share a tip on New Lawn Care Instructions:

Newly Hydroseeded Lawn Care

10 to 14 days
Germination takes place, water 3 to 4 times a day for about 30 days
Golden rule – ground wet all day (without standing water for more than 1 hour)
Every lawn and every irrigation system is unique. When in doubt apply golden rule.  

 

14 to 45 days
(Optional)
- Fertilize lightly with fertilizer (half of recommended amount)
Starter fertilizer is O.K. 

 

30 to 60 days
- First mowing takes place when 50% of lawn is 2″ or higher.
Mower must be sharp and clean of debris. Mower height set at 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 inches.
Fertilize again with half the recommended amount of starter fertilizer.
Mow weekly from now on (this is critical! It will force grass plants to spread out and fill in)
Water only once a day (early morning preferred) from now on. 

 

90 to 120 days
- Apply a good quality weed and feed!
Follow directions on bag exactly as stated.
Depending on your environment, this step may need to be repeated. 

 

Key Notes:

- The first 14 days of watering is critical to proper germination.
Review watering times daily to insure complete coverage of areas.
Adjust sprinklers or water times as needed. Do not “over water” or water at night! 

 

- Depending on your environment and (or) seed bed preparation. Weeds may or may not
grow with the new grass. They may be killed at a later time with normal applications of
weed and feed.

 

- After grass is established mowing height should be at least 3″ but not more than 5″.
3 1/2″ or 4 1/2″ is recommended (dwarf varieties may be lower)

 

 

- Fertilize 3 to 4 times a year with good quality fertilizer.

 

 

- Due to differences in soil condition and Ph balances, it is not uncommon to have small
patches that do not germinate. Many of these areas will fill in when you begin mowing
on a weekly basis. You must ensure that slow germinating areas are not caused by lack
of water!

Rapid Lawn Landscape Solutions a Trusted Regina Turf and Lawn Experts share a great tip on the Benefits of Hydroseeding

Here they share a great tip on the Benefits of Hydroseeding:

 

Cost Effective

 

Hydroseeding is definitely the most economical choice for establishing the growing results desired without the expense, time consumption, material costs or installation demands of sodding or traditional hand seeding methods. A great looking lawn can also significantly increase the value of your home.

Hydroseeding typically costs 50-80% less than the price of sod, and coupled with labour charges, the overall expenses associated with sodding can be astronomical. With the savings in material costs and installation expenses, a lawn could be fully established for half the price of sod or less.

Hydroseeding is also the cost effective solution over hand seeding as well. While the average hand-sewn lawn takes about half the day, the same area can be hydroseeded to completion in about an hour to an hour and a half. While maintaining even more beautiful results, a healthier lawn, costs savings and faster germination, hydroseeding is truly the cost effective choice and wave of the future.

Quality

The lawn quality that hydroseeding affords is much healthier, greener and longer lasting than sodding or hand seeding applications. The root establishment is grown deeper into the soil and avoids the shock of being transplanted into foreign soils, which is what occurs with sod methods.

Hydroseeding typically yields superior results the first time it is installed and the seeds are more resistant to external problems because it has been adjusted to its present soil conditions. Hydroseeded soils hold moisture better than sod or hand seeded types, therefore the seeds can germinate quicker.

Additionally, hydroseeding includes fewer weed seeds, no layering of soils, and incorporates a tackifier coagulant that will not experience wash out. Consequently, it is fairly common for a peat moss covered seed to wash out in the event of moderate inclement weather.

With hydroseeding, it is possible to customize the application of different grass seed preferences to meet the quality expectations of the client’s aesthetic appeal, traffic needs and surrounding environments.

 

 

Coverage

Hydroseeding provides a thicker, more uniform lawn that essentially consists of a mat of interlocking fibers creating the ideal growing environment that doesn’t have the threat of seams showing as with sod or sparse, patchy areas with hand seeding. Hydroseeding creates an evenly covered area that forms a barrier to keep seed stabilized and retain moisture, fertilizer and other healthy growth-enhancing nutrients, while ultimately resulting in a full, lush lawn.

Other beneficial coverage advantages of hydroseeding are its ability to cover large, difficult and inaccessible areas, such as slopes, that are too steep for sod, hard seeding or mat applications. Coupled with increased plant survival and faster germination, hydroseeding is ideal for covering projects ranging from golf courses to roadside erosion control.

Erosion Control

Erosion control is the most prevalent reason for using hydroseeding in an effort to hold moisture and protect against erosion from wind, rain, sun and pests through the binding of seed, mulch, tackifiers and other soil conditioners that encompass the hydroseeding slurry to bind with the ground surface soil.

Versatility & Use

Hydroseeding has become increasing popular, overshadowing both hand seeding and sod, for a wide array of job sites and applications. Some of these uses include residential lawns, erosion control, hillside stabilization, vegetation restoration, wildfire repair, roadsides, national parks, soil renovation, landfills, city parks, airport dust control, and many other versatile uses.

Hydroseeding is used primarily to establish permanent lawns or landscaping, however it is also known for serving as temporary cover for dirt that will eventually be moved. One of the benefits of hydroseeding is that the seed varieties that are added to hydroseeding slurry mix are as unique and varied as the job sites themselves. It is accommodating to be able to mix and match different seed blends to satisfy the needs of the clients and job. One of the main separations between hydroseeding and other methods of seeding is its ability to economically seed large, hard-to-reach areas where alternative seeding methods may not be easily accomplished.

Health

Hydroseeding creates the ideal microenvironment for germinating seed because the slurry materials enhance the seeds germination process and stimulates the seeds to grow a healthy, deep-rooted system in the ground where moisture is at its greatest.

In comparison to sod, hydroseeding is grown right at ones home, rather than some distant sod farm, so the threat of transplant shock or soil adaptation problems are not an issue. A hydroseeded yard maintains full growth and resists disease and weeds.

Because the hydroseeding slurry is a combination of different elements to help maximize seed growth, each of those individual elements adds various benefits to the hydroseeding process. Mulch fiber helps prevent wind and water erosion, while simultaneously protecting the surface from sun damage and soil temperature fluctuation. Ultimately the mulch fiber decomposes and adds nourishment to the soil to enhance the germination process. Working together with the mulch, fertilizers have high phosphorus content to enhance the root growth and soil amendments improve the pH levels of the soil.

Traditional hand seeding methods will have considerably less grass growth than a hydroseeded yard because hydroseeding provides a moisture retaining mulch that allows the undisturbed seed to germinate and root faster.  

Speed

Although hydroseeding doesn’t afford the “instant lawn” gratification, such as sod, the combination of cost, quality, coverage, erosion control and health definitely tip the scales in favour of the plentiful benefits of hydroseeding.

Hydroseeding is faster and easier to install than sod, and this rapid application is managed without the downfall of outstanding labour expenditures. A properly hydroseeded and watered lawn will start to grow in about 7 days, and under normal conditions, will be fully established and ready to mow in 3-4 weeks. In comparison to other methods of seeding, seed applied in a hydroseeding mix will generally show growth and develop turf faster than if it was applied in a broadcast fashion.

Safety

Hydroseeding is a completely safe and non-toxic method of growing grass that is harmless to kids, pets, wildlife and the environment.

Labour

One of the major advantages of hydroseeding hydroseeding is simply manpower. In a typical hydroseeding application, one can fully depend on less than 3 men to accomplish what is would take 6 workers to fulfill given the same amount of work time using erosion blankets or sod. Not only is hydroseeding the ideal seeding application to attain a beautiful lawn at a fraction of the material cost and labour expenses as sod, but ultimately it requires very little intense labour to install.

In addition to sod, hand seeding can be even more labour intensive and physically demanding, and usually results in lumpy, inconsistent results that don’t warrant the challenge of the installation.

Water Retention

With hydroseeding’s ability to retain up to 10 times its weight in water, it’s definitely proved to be the best method for fast, healthy germination, high plant survival and protection of seeds with a moisture sealant. No other method of growing grass, whether sod or hand seeding, has the advantages of hydroseeding when it comes to water retention. In the hydroseeding mix, fiber mulch and tackifiers are used to anchor the mixture to slopes and help seal in moisture. The water is then slowly released, along with nutrients, to the root system to constantly replenish itself until the next rainfall. A hydroseeded ground starts growing grass from the root first, allowing the root system to go deep into the ground where moisture is at its greatest, making a very drought-tolerant lawn. On the contrary, when using sod, the ground has a difficult time establishing a root system making it weak in drought type conditions, and with hand seeding, the watering demands are twice as much as a hydroseeded lawn.
