HYDROSEEDING: FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS

Hydroseeding, also known as hydraulic seeding, is an effective method to quickly cover soil surfaces with a lush lawn or a variety of plants, be it wildflowers, grasses, or other seeds tailored to the client’s needs. This technique involves spraying a specially prepared mixture of water, seeds, fertilizer, binder, and mulch onto the area to be seeded. The addition of fertilizer promotes seed growth, while mulch, made from recycled materials like newspapers and wood chips, plays a crucial role in protecting the soil from erosion, maintaining the necessary moisture for germination, and providing protection against temperature variations. The binder ensures the consistency of the mixture, which is then delicately sprayed onto the surface to be treated.

Hydroseeding offers numerous advantages. This method is both fast and cost-effective, providing a less expensive alternative to laying sod while being more efficient than traditional seeding, where seeds are often washed away by rain before germination. Additionally, the mulch acts as a natural greenhouse for the seeds, creating optimal growth conditions and promoting their development. Hydroseeding can be applied on various surfaces, including sloped terrain, golf courses, highway edges, hard-to-reach areas, gravel surfaces, and more, making it a versatile option for landscaping. Moreover, this environmentally friendly method can be adapted to a wide range of seed blends, meeting specific needs for grass, plants, or flowers.
