Hydroseeding is the process of mixing, high quality grass seed, mulch, fertilizer and water in a large agitated tank. It is often used for erosion control, and as an alternative to laying sod or broadcast seeding.
Hydroseeding can be much more cost effective than laying sod, and much more beneficial than broadcast seeding. Within the slurry, the seed is protected by a high quality mulch. Broadcast seeding leaves the seed laying on the soil surface, unprotected and exposed to the elements. With hydroseeding, the mulch protects the seed from the elements and pests, as well as locks in moisture to keep the seed damp.
If you are looking to plant a large area of land, hydroseeding is a great alternative to broadcast seeding or drill seeding. Hydroseeding can be completed in a few hours, depending on the size of the project. Germination rates are quicker with hydroseeding as opposed to broadcast seeding, as the seed is protected and has the proper moisture and nutrients to thrive. Typically, under ideal conditions, germination will begin in 3-4 days, with a full lush lawn in about 28 days.
Hydroseeding is also very effective for erosion control of hillsides and slopes that are hard to access, or may have excessive runoff. The mulch and tackifier in the slurry stabilize the soil, and prevent soil from eroding from wind and water. In contrast to laying sod, hydroseeding will not slough. This can be a big problem when laying sod on a slope. With excessive moisture, the sod pieces will begin to slide down the slope, resulting in a very uneven and patchy slope.
