Hydroseeding is a seeding process in which seed and hydromulch are mixed into a slurry and applied to an area with water. It usually consists of a blend of seed, fertilizer, mulch, and a tackifing agent that is mixed with water to be sprayed from a specialized machine. This slurry becomes the seedbed and aids in the germination of the desired vegetation. The mulch not only aids in the delivery of the seed, but also helps retain moisture and protect the seedlings during the germination period.
The benefits of hydroseeding are many including efficiency of placement, difficult terrain applications, less equipment to operate vs. traditional methods, and reduced labor. It can be very effective for hillsides, inaccessible terrain, and sloping lawns to help with erosion control and quick planting. Hydroseeding will typically cost less than planting with sod, but more than broadcast seeding. Vegetation results are often quicker with high germination rates producing grass growth earlier than drilled or broadcasted applications.
Challenger is one of the few companies in North America that are professionally certified in Hydroseeding. When it comes to experience and know how, few come close to what we have to offer as an erosion control contractor.
