It's a wet coated seed mixture (coated with a material that holds moisture long enough for the seed to germinate even if it's not watered.  It's long been used by the department of transporation for the shoulders of new roads and ones that were widened and what not because there is no way to water it.  Had it done on our new home 16 years ago because right after we finished building we went on a two week vacation.  Came home to grass.

Haven't seen it here yet.   Most new construction is on postage-stamp sized lots; so there isn't much yard.   They are still throwing down sod.

Hydroseeding (or hydraulic mulch seeding, hydro-mulching, hydraseeding) is a planting process that uses a slurry of seed and mulch. It is often used as an erosion control technique on construction sites, as an alternative to the traditional process of broadcasting or sowing dry seed.

They have used this concept in our town to "seed" planting strips near newly constructed roads. I wish they maintained the plantings, however, once they grow.  Quickly turn into weeds!

They use it all the time out here for the slopes along the freeways and ESPECIALLY in burn areas after a fire.  Usually a mixture of flowers.  Grows quicklly and helps prevent mudslides during the rains.  Actually tried to get it for the slope outside of my house once but the area was too small and the cost too high.

I sought to Hydroseed a yard that had no existing grass. Unsuccessful.

Government agencies here in Pinellas County FL rely on sod for soil coverage, preferably Bahia grass.....the very weed that spells death to a lawn with St Augustine the most common sod in my area.
