Hydroseeding is a hydraulic planting method that is the most up-to-date system known for planting lawns, ground covers and establishing plant material on slopes for erosion and dust control. All the materials (water, seed, fertilizer, and fiber mulching material) are combined in a large tank. They are thoroughly mixed, then sprayed through a high-pressure nozzle onto the ground.
After application the wet fiber molds and clings to the soil. The mulch protects the seeds during germination, and then it breaks down over time and provides nutrients for the new grass. With proper conditions, lawns can be ready to mow within 30 days.
One of the advantages of establishing plant material from seed is the great variety of seeds available in any number of combinations. The technique makes planting possible as a one-step application, under nearly all weather, soil, and slope conditions for a very low cost. Hydroseeding costs an average of 70% less than sod lawns, and there is a substantial savings of time.
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.
One of the largest benefits to hydroseeding is that it has a quick germination rate when compared to other forms of mulching and seeding. This makes it ideal for erosion control, particularly since hydroseeding can take root in places where mats and hay simply won’t stay put, like steep slopes or hillsides.
