An alternative to the traditional process of broadcasting or sowing dry seed, Hydro-seeding is a planting process which utilizes a slurry of seed and mulch. The slurry is mixed and transported in our own Hydroseeder and sprayed over prepared ground with the tank-mounted nozzel or extended with 300 feet of hose to access the hard-to-reach places.
- Applying nutrients, seed, stabilization, and water in one application.
- If planting a relatively large area, hydro-seeding can be completed in a very short period of time.
- Hydro-seeding can be very effective for hillsides and sloping lawns to help with erosion control and quick planting, as well as uniformed installation of soil stabilization materials.
- Results are often quicker with high germination rates producing grass growth in about a week and mowing maintenance beginning around 3-4 weeks from the time of application.
