preparation is required for Hydroseeding?
Hydroseeding came into use for the building of highways. With steep
banks that conventional seeding equipment could not go on Hydroseeding
was the solution that produced great growth with next to no preparation
at all. However, we do recommend that you prepare your soil the same
way you would for regular seeding to gain maximum growth. In cases where
the weather has been less then favorable perhaps crusting from rains
or a lack of rain go ahead and hydroseed anyway. Hydroseeding will produce
great results under poor conditions and get a higher percentage of seed
What kind of seed do you
We can use any seed you like. The seed doesn’t need to be anything
special for Hydroseeding.
Do I have to fertilize?
Hydroseeding starts you off with fertilized seed. In roughly a months
time we suggested you start on a fertilizer program to gain maximum
growth. Please see details in maintenance.
Mulch is an environmentally friendly wet glue-like substance. It holds
the seed mixture together, moisture in and keeps everything in place.
1. Paper or cellulose mulch,
2. Wood fiber mulch,
3. Mixtures of wood and paper
4. Pelletized mulch such as Jet Spray.
Paper and wood mulch use different techniques in protecting the seed
and sealing in the moisture. The paper mulch is similar to a layer of
green paper machete where the wood mulch is much like a layer of tiny
straw. Although they work differently, both work great. We prefer to
use paper mulch as it is cheaper then wood and goes further.
