An effective method that can be applied to difficult sites not accessible by heavy vehicles, providing the client with a number of advantages over conventional seeding.

What is Hydroseeding?

Hydroseeding is the method of hydraulically applying seeds, stabilizers and soil amendments to the surface of the soil for the primary objective of revegetation.

Advantages of Hydroseeding

Hydroseeding is simply another means of applying seed to the soil, and will provide additional erosion protection once the vegetation establishes.

  • The seed can be applied if the area is wet, as the trucks can reach areas of up to 200m from the vehicle with the aid of hoses. This means that an area can be seeded to meet deadlines in most ground conditions.
  • Low cost method of broad acre spraying due to the speed of application and the size of area covered per tank.
  • Tackifiers and bonding agents can be added to the mix to provide dust suppression and prevent soil erosion from exposed areas.
  • This treatment should be used especially when using native seed prior to a hydromulch or straw mulch application.
