Hydroseeding as Erosion Control Benefits

Mar 28


Anybody who has tried to design a landscape for an uneven or hilly space knows how challenging it is. Planning and execution is more complex when landscaping an even area because of the challenges involved in the process of moving and organizing resources.

You need to be aware that erosion could be a issue. The forces of nature such as sun, rain, and wildlife, could strike at any moment and cause harm to freshly cultivated soil. Issues with surface runoff or landslides can ruin all your hard work , especially if hills are involved.

Landscapers should be aware of all possible planting options. The process of sowing seeds is simple. A few rows are inserted into the ground and covered with a thin layer of soil. Broadcast seeding refers to when landscaping professionals spread seeds over the entire area. The distribution of seeds is usually carried out using a machine, however it is possible to be done manually. The traditional methods of planting are especially vulnerable to erosion because they expose them to the elements or shield them by adding a bit of earth.


Sod can be used by landscapers to reduce soil erosion. However, this method is not limited to grass plantation and can be very costly. Landscapers have a new, more adaptable and cost-effective cultivation method. Hydroseeding Colorado Spring is a technique that involves spraying a mixture of fertilizer, seeds, and mulch over the entire area in order to cover the soil. The slurry may also be transported in a tank, often mounted on trucks or a trailer. It is therefore able to cover large areas nearly everywhere.

This planting option has many benefits when it comes to erosion control. Here are five of these main advantages over conventional methods.


1. Speed

In every way the hydroseeding process is more efficient than other methods. The slurry can be spread in half the time of traditional methods, as an instance. In addition, the special bonds that are included in its formulation - referred to as tacking agents - ensure that the slurry binds to the soil rapidly to give stability and help the seeds in establishing.


It is also up to 10 times heavier than its weight. It's in contrast to the straw or hay used before to help protect and stimulate new seeds. The extra moisture allows seeds to begin sprouting within 3 to 5 days after the application. Stabilizing the soil with rapid germination and instant bonding helps to prevent erosion.


2. Efficiency

To prevent seeds from falling over or being consumed, landscapers utilized straw and hay. Storms can cause a great deal of damage, but also consume time. Because of how quickly it bonds itself to the soil, this won't be an issue when you are hydroseeding. The seeds are distributed more evenly and gives the final product a more polished appearance. This helps reduce the amount of time spent by a person.


3. Versatility

Hydroseeding can be used with any type of seed, including grass, pasture, field mix, wildflowers, as well as native plants. You can also create customized grass and other plant life combinations to meet your unique requirements for landscaping. The latest products and improvements to hydroseed are continually being created. Hydroseed can also stabilize soil in the case of a wildfire or other natural disasters.
