Hydroseeding Landscaping And Erosion Control Weslaco Texas

What Is Hydroseeding In Weslaco Texas?

Hydroseeding (or hydraulic mulch seeding, hydro-mulching, hydraseeding) is a planting process that uses a slurry of seed and mulch. It is often used as an erosion control technique on construction sites, as an alternative to the traditional process of broadcasting or sowing dry seed.

How HydroSeeding Works In Weslaco

Virtually any grass or erosion control seed that can be planted by seed can be hydro seeded. This includes any sun or shade lawn seed, athletic field mixes, pasture mixes, native grasses, wildflowers, roadside mixes and erosion control mixes. The nutrient rich slurry helps promote fast germination. The hydro seeding mulch helps keep the soil moist to enable the seed to germinate quickly and unlike straw or hay contains no weed seed. The tackifer in the mix acts like a glue to hold the mulch in place and to help prevent washout in the case of heavy rains.

The advantages of hydro seeding over sod are:

  • You can have a sod quality lawn in a few weeks for less than 1/3 the cost of sod
  • Both hydro seeding and sod require watering but the watering requirements for hydro seeding are less
  • Hydro seeding grows the lawn on your soil and is not a different soil that is transplanted
  • The problem of sod not “taking” is eliminated.
  • With sod the roots are cut very short and the sod goes through some shock during shipment and installation
  • Seed spreaders do a generally decent job of spreading the seed in a broadcast seeding application. However, in many cases, it’s very difficult to know exactly what areas are covered and what areas aren’t. This is never an issue with hydroseeding. The dye that is included in the slurry — and for that matter, the process itself — gives instant feedback to the spreader (and anyone watching) that there is in fact 100% coverage. You want your entire project to look great. Avoid the uneven, clumpy effect of broadcast seeding by insisting on hydroseeding.
  • Hydroseeding is Quicker
    All other things being equal (which they’re not), hydro seeded lawns will also typically come in faster. In fact, it is not unusual to see early growth in as little as five or six days. And of course, the faster a lawn comes in, the less worries there are for nurturing it through its critical stages of germination
