The benefits of hydroseeding to control erosion Control

Mar 28


Anyone who has tried to plant a garden in an uneven or hilly area knows how difficult it is. Due to the logistics involved with moving and organizing resources, planning and execution can be much more difficult than landscaping an even space.

You must be aware that erosion can be a problem. Nature's forces, like rain and sun, wind and wildlife could strike at any time and cause havoc on newly cultivated soil. When hills are present, issues like surface runoff or landslides can cause havoc on all your hard work.


Landscapers should be aware of the various planting options. Seeding is straightforward. A couple of rows are planted into the ground, and then covered by a thin layer of soil. Broadcast seeding occurs when the landscaper spreads seeds across a large area. Broadcast seeding can be done by hand or using a machine. These traditional planting methods can be especially susceptible to erosion because they either expose them to the elements, or cover them by a small amount of soil.

Sod is used by landscapers to reduce soil erosion. This technique can be costly and not only limited to grass-growing. A new and more flexible cultivation method is available to landscapers. It's also less expensive. Hydroseeding in colorado Springs involves the application of a mix of mulch, fertilizer and seed all over the area. The slurry may also be transported via tank, which is usually mounted on trucks or a trailer. It can therefore handle large areas almost anywhere.

This plant option offers a variety of advantages in terms of erosion control. Here are five principal advantages over traditional methods.


1. Speed

In all ways it is much more effective over other techniques. In particular the slurry is spray at more than half the speed of traditional methods. The bonding agents used included in the mix, referred to as tacking agents make sure that the slurry is able to bond quickly to the soil to give stability and aid in the growth of the roots of the seeds.


The slurry also holds up to 10 times its weight. This is different to straw and hay which was previously used to promote the development of new seeds. The additional moisture helps seeds to begin sprouting within three to five days after application. Fast germination and instant bonding help strengthen the soil and helps reduce erosion.


2. Efficiency

To keep seeds from falling or being eaten, landscapers used straw and hay. Storms can cause a great deal of damage, and also consume time. Because of how quickly it attaches itself to the soil, this isn't an issue when hydroseeding. The seeds are distributed more evenly, and provides the final product a neater appearance. This can reduce the time required for a person.


3. Versatility

Hydroseeding can be used with any kind of seed including grass, pasture, field mix, wildflowers, and native plants. To meet your specific needs in landscaping, you are able to create custom grass and other combinations of plants. The latest products and improvements to hydroseed are constantly being developed. Hydroseed also helps be used to stabilize soil in case of a wildfire or other natural disasters.


4. Safety

Hydroseeding is an efficient and flexible method that has many benefits. There aren't any side effects to be concerned about. The Slurry is safe for children, wild animals and pets as well as the surrounding environment. It will not leave any marks on your home, driveway, or family car.


5. Price

Hydroseeding is an affordable method to plant your garden. It's less expensive than sod, and it is much easier. Hydroseeding is also less expensive than sod. Hydroseeding is uniform in development and doesn't have seams. Hydroseeding is a great option for landscapers who want to avoid the downsides of sod and enjoy excellent erosion control.
