Bob Triick & Sons is a family owned and operated business started in 1946. We have been in the hydro seeding business since 1970. We specialize in the installation of fine lawn areas, transitional areas, playgrounds, wild flowers and horse pastures.
Bob Triick & Sons Inc. was founded in 1946, by Bob and Esther Triick. They started by plowing-cultivating gardens, and back filling basements with a Ford tractors because bulldozers were scarce. As gardens became smaller, he started seeding them into grass.
He then started spreading top soil with the same tractors. The sons, Bob Jr. and Gary began working and learning with their father in the early to mid 60’s. In the mid 1960’s he purchased a Brillion seed drill, enabling him to seed much larger projects such as golf courses, cemeteries, factories, sod farms, etc.
In 1970 he purchased a Hydro Seeder, one of about six such machines in West Michigan at the time. In 1973 the business was incorporated. At that time Bob Jr. and Gary were brought into the business. In the late 70’s, early 80’s a second hydro seeder was purchased to keep up with the demand. In the 80’s a second preparation crew was added.
Now in 2004 we have two Hydro Seeder crews, and two preparation crews. We now specialize in the Preparation and Hydro Seeding of new home lawns.
