Hydroseeding is a method of grass planting that is mechanically applied by a hydroseeder equipped with mechanical internal agitator. The complex blend containing seeds, tackifier, fertilizers and other additives, has to be applied evenly on the soil surface by hoses and cannons.
Depending on situation and on the soil type, hydroseeding products and systems can vary.
Hydroseeding methods can be divided into three major groups:
- Hydroseeding with green wood fibers allows to establish vegetation on such surfaces where it wouldn’t otherwise be possible to obtain satisfactory results with traditional hand-seeding. Mulch reduces erosion and creates a microclimate that enhances and promote growth and root development.
Mulch can absorb a substantial amount of the water slowly released to the soil, thus creating a greenhouse effect that improves germination.
- Heavy hydroseeding with organic matter and wood fiber mulch. It allows grass planting even on very steep slopes, sterile soil lacking organic coverage and turf reinforcements , very irregular slopes. This method consists in carrying out in one or more steps heavy hydromulching using only
natural products that don’t alter the ecosystem.
- Hydroseeding with Hydromat MFL - Hydraulically applied blanket: surface covering with an erosion control matrix (Hydromat) blended with other natural products. This method provides a safe and economically effective erosion-control substitute for traditional blankets - even on the steepest slopes.
