What Is Hydroseeding?


What is Hydroseeding?

Hydroseeding is a planting process in which a slurry containing seed, mulch, fertilizer and a tackifier (bonding agent) is sprayed onto the ground. The slurry is sprayed over prepared ground in a uniform layer. Hydroseeding offers many advantages to the traditional process of broadcasting or sowing dry seed. It promotes quick germination and inhibits soil erosion. It is also a very effective alternative to sod that offers a significant cost savings as well as many other benefits. 

How Does Hydroseeding Work?

Virtually any grass, or erosion control seed that can be planted by seed can be hydroseeded. This includes any sun or shade lawn seed, athletic field mixes, pasture mixes, native grasses, wildflowers, roadside mixes and erosion control mixes. The nutrient rich slurry helps promote fast germination. The hydroseeding mulch helps keep the soil moist to enable the seed to germinate quickly and unlike straw or hay contains no weed seed. The tackifier in the mix acts like a glue to hold the mulch in place and to help prevent washout in the case of heavy rains. 

What are the Advantages Of Hydroseeding Over Broadcast (Dry) Seeding?

· Quicker Germination

· Better moisture retention

· Better seed to soil contact

· Hydroseeding mulch contains no weed seed unlike straw or hay

· Better results at a similar cost

· Areas such as hillsides and narrow areas that are difficult or impossible to dry seed can be done easily

· No straw or netting to remove

· One step and very uniform application

· Holds soil in place 

What are the Advantages Of Hydroseeding Over Sod?

Sod provides instant gratification but there are advantages to hydro seeding over sod.
The advantages of hydro seeding over sod are: 

· You can have a sod quality lawn in a few weeks for less than 1/3 the cost of sod 

· Both hydroseeding and sod require watering but the watering requirements for hydro seeding are less 

· Hydro seeding grows the lawn on your soil and is not a different soil that is transplanted 

· The problem of sod not “taking” is eliminated. 

· With sod the roots are cut very short and the sod goes through some shock during shipment and installation
