used was Bermuda and the time between the photos was 4 weeks.
I thought of you the other day as we were doing some work above a very
steep hill that we excavated and restored last year. As the
& after photos show, the hydroseeding of this area was very

Here is a project completed by Trajan
Landscaping in NC. The following is his discription of the
I wanted to share a little about an interesting project we
just completed Monday. We were awarded a contract to seed a
earthen basket wall along the boundary of a mixed use
commercial development in N. Raleigh, NC. The wall stretches
for about 3500 linear ft and had an average height of
Well, first of all I would like to thank Ray for some
reassurance and advice he was kind to give before we started
Some of the challenges we faced right off the bat was the fact
that the wall builder installed a 6 ft fence along the top of
the wall and the contractor constructed a small berm
approximately 8-10 ft inside and running parallel to the fence
to prevent water runoff over the wall. The ground got very
soft as it approached the fence and forced us to use a larger
lift that could stay back on solid ground. Also vehicle
access was very limited to the bottom of the wall.
The equipment we used was a TT 500 HarvE and a Genie 80 ft
articulating man lift. The contractor was kind enough to
dedicate one of his water trucks to our efforts which made
life so much easier.
We applied Flexterra @ 3500 lbs/acre in a two-step process as
recommended by Profile literature and were very pleased that
our HarvE could easily mix and spray 200lbs of flex per load
through 1.5 inch hose. The seed was a mix of tall and hard
fescues, annual rye, weeping lovegrass, hairy vetch, and
durana clover. We also applied a granular starter fert and
Profile’s NeutraLime Dry, BioPrime and Jumpstart.
The seed load and flexterra cap were applied from both above
the wall with the lift and from ground level to avoid
shadowing. It took a bit of coordination to keep the truck
and lift all moving in synch but we managed pretty well.
As shown in the picture we used a large piece of 6in pvc
strapped to the platform on the seeder to run the hose through
and then over the fence. This allowed us to just drive along
the crest of the berm and the sprayer would walk the base of
the wall or ride the lift spraying. When we were using the
lift we had one person driving it and another spraying. I
would keep the truck moving forward and giving the lift driver
directions since he was below the edge of the wall and
couldn’t really see to drive. Anyway, it took us 4.5 days
with one day lost to a broken lift. We are on top of the
world about this job and I wanted to share it with everyone.
Kaufman Landscaping of Center Hall, PA
uses an HS-500-XPW. They think hydro seeding is great.
They used to use a Brillion slit seeder. Their callbacks have
dropped significantly since changing to hydro seeding. They
love the way the tackifier works and how well it holds in adverse
weather. The love how easy it is to seed irregular areas and
say they would never go back to slit seeding.
West Virginia Weslyan College in Buchanan WV
picked an HS-300-E. The conversation with the grounds crew was
interesting as they kept coming up with more and more problems they
could solve with this unit. Things like their soccer fields that are
hard to get on, because they are always in use. Now they can zip on,
fix them, and get out.
Ted Weber of Ted's Landscaping in Chardon, OH
called for a demo, telling us he would not be ready to buy for a
few months, but since he had a front yard to seed now, it would be a
good test. It was raining when we arrived. Ted wanted to go ahead
despite the rain. We did the entire yard from the driveway using all
the nozzles to avoid marking the yard. In the fall, Ted called,
mentioned the yard had turned out beautifully, and ordered an
HS-300-E. He also told us that he had needed some hydro seeding done
after the demo and had called a local competitor. He helped the
competitor seed and was amazed that the unit we had demonstrated
performed far better than his competitors much higher priced
machine. When Ted told him what we had been able to do with the
Turbo Turf System the competitor said "That's Impossible". Perhaps
Turbo Turf does the impossible. The last time we talked to Ted, he
said he had seeded over 200,000 square feet that month, that he
loved his machine.
Roselawn Cemetery, Monroe, MI Larry Merkle
thought our HS-50 was the greatest thing for a cemetery they ever
saw. The family often comes out all the time at first, and with this
unit they can go in and immediately have an attractive green color
on the grave and have grass growing faster than ever.
John Mento of Mento Landscaping in Braintree
MA spent a lot of time deciding to get a hydro seeding system,
and which system to buy. Like everyone, John did not want to make a
mistake. The first time we talked to John after he purchased an
HS-500-E, he said he had made a big mistake. He said he really loves
his unit, and it works great. In his first few weeks with it, he had
already generated $ 9000.00 in profits, and his big mistake, was in
taking so long to make up his mind, and missing out on the profits
he could have made.
Ryan Gardner of Gardner & Sons Hydroseeding in
Hadley NY has owned an HS-300-XPW for three seasons. He
says the simplicity and overall design of our units is awesome.
He has not had a single clog in the unit in three years. One
time he left material in the tank and hoses for a week in the summer
and as he says it, "The sucker just started pumping like it was
water". We were also pleased with the nice comments he made
about us as a company when he said " Turbo Technologies is the model
company to do business with. They truly care about their
clients and the industry. It is fantastic to have a company to
deal with that is old school."
Oklahoma National Guard, Camp Gruber, OK
wanted a unit to maintain their property and repair damage from
training exercises. They thought an HS-100 was ideal.
Xquiste Lawns of Poughkeepsie NY had
owned a another brand of 300 gallon mechanically agitated unit.
When Andy switched to a 300 Gallon Turbo Turf he said he was amazed
that a unit that was half the price was twice as effective.
Congressional Country Club, Bethesda MD.
When your typical players are U. S. Presidents, congressmen and
foreign dignitaries, you want a top flight course. With
18 bunkers to redo before hosting the U. S. Open, Paul Latshaw chose
an HS-50-P. With this powerful but small unit they can go in
and seed any area in minutes without relying on anyone else.
Al Whaples of Elm Hill Landscaping purchased
an HS-300. He wanted to tell us about his first job. He
used Conwed 70/30 mulch and the unit handled it flawlessly.
He was surprised how easy the machine was to run and felt he became
an expert hydro seeder in 5 minutes. He commented that the
machine actually performed better than we told him it would and that
it was a pleasure to do business with a company that has their act
Bob Jerszyk of Millbury MA felt that if he
could get a new customer started with the hydro seeding part of the
business, he could keep them for all the other things they needed
done. Since adding his HS-500-E, his business has grown from
about $ 1100 per week to about $ 11,000 per week. He easily
paid for his machine in the first few weeks, and says his Turbo Turf
is simple to run. He has even sent his wife to run it.
David Zaffino of Z & Z construction in Madison
Twp, PA has had an HS-500-E for over 10 years. He loves
his machine and usually seeds about 600,000 sq. ft a year.
After more than 10 years he just had to do his first maintenance on
his unit. He had to clean the carburetor.
Oak's Golf Club in Muscell Shoals, AL had
a lot of fairways to re-do and choose an HS-300-E to do it with.
When we last talked to John Wagner they had already completed a lot
of the fairways and loved their machine. :John said "The unit
is really a dandy."
Dan Mozer of Agri Turf of New Jersey in
Yardville NJ is really happy with his HS-300-E. Since he has to
primarily fill up on the site from a garden hose he rigged up an
auxiliary tank. While he is seeding he lets the garden hose run into
the auxiliary tank then uses a 2" gas powered pump to transfer
it to his 300 gallon hydro seeder. He tells us he can seed nearly
non stop. He tells us he can seed 2 acres a day and that his little
300 gallon Turbo Turf unit will run circles around an 800 gallon
mechanically agitated system.
Resurrection Cemetery of Wyoming MI has
sandy soil. Anton says they had been using sod and the
applications were very unsuccessful. They love their little
HS-100-P. The machine does a big job and their seeding is very
successful and it is 1/10th the cost of sod
Dartmouth College of Hanover NH has the
only hydro seeding unit in their area. They tell us people have been
amazed with what they can do with their HS-300-XPW, and that it
Shawn Parks of Havelock NC recently
purchased an HS-500-E. It was the first hydro seeding unit in the
area. He tried it out, then showed it to all the home builders in
his area. Every home builder told him that from now on he would get
all their business. Shawn has instantly generated a big business. He
tells us that overall his Turbo Turf System is wonderful.
Thain Anderson of Roy UT purchased an
HS-750-XPW. He earned enough in less than a week to completely pay
for his system. Hydro seeding is so profitable for him, that he
plans to get an HS-500-XPW for his wife to operate.
Kutztown University, Kutztown, PA, chose
an HS-150-P with a "Seed & Spray" option. They loved
the performance and the versatility. With one machine they have both
a sprayer and a hydro seeding system.
Mark Larivere of Rye, NH, chose an
HS-500-E to add a new profit center to his business. Mark
loves his unit, particularly the performance and the profitability.
His first day he shot 9 loads. By noon of that first day, his
machine was paid for. Being able to go out and make $ 5000.00
in a morning made him a very happy guy.
David Cerasaro of National Park Services, in
Hyde Park NY, has been using a 1998 Turbo Turf HS-100-P He
says it has outperformed any machine he has operated and he would
rate it as "Flawless".
