What is Hydroseeding?

What is HydroseedingHydroseeding is a process where you take wood or paper cellulose mulch, water, seed, fertilizer, and tacking agents mix them together in a specialized agitating hydroseed machine to create a mulch slurry, which is then sprayed on the ground with the machines high pressure hose or turret gun.

Why Hydroseed

This one step process of seeding creates a layer of mulch which acts as a soil stabilizer to prevent water and wind erosion, also allowing for easier seeding where heavy, bulky equipment may not be able to seed. The mulches unique ability to retain moisture allows the new seedlings to germinate quicker than traditional seeding methods creating a beautiful lush lawn in a fraction of the time. It is also a cost effective alternative to sod.
