Hydroseeding (hydraulic mulch seeding) is the process of spraying a specially mixed slurry comprising of water, seed, hydro-mulch, fertiliser plus eco-friendly binder in just one operation. Although the optimum times to hydroseed are Spring and Autumn, with the right weather conditions hydroseeding can be carried out throughout the year.
Individual mixtures (grasses, legumes, wildflower, tree & shrub seed and sedum) can all be applied with a variety of different hydro-mulches; wood fibre, paper etc, together with organic tackifiers, fertilisers and trace elements to establish vegetation on inhospitable sites.
Additives to the hydroseed mix such as plant hormones, additional erosion control tackifier, soil amendments and microbial bacteria, enhance germination establishment to create the ideal growing environment that increases moisture retention, aids soil stabilisation, provides valuable nutrients and helps fight disease.
Advantages Over Conventional Seeding
Hydroseeding is intended for use when either the area is too large, inaccessible or unsuitable for conventional seeding and when results are required fast!
No matter how large or small the project, hydroseeding is an extremely cost effective and successful method of establishing new vegetation.
Individual Seed Mixtures
No two sites are alike and for every project there is an individual seed mix. We are able to cater for almost any requirement taking into account factors such as soil type, climate, location etc.
Our long term commitment to research and scientific collaboration has enabled us to play a major role in the market development of this important element.
