Hydroseeding is spraying a slurry of water, mulch, fertilizer, seed, and tackifier onto a prepared seedbed. This seeding method has many advantages over broadcast seeding or drill seeding alone.
Mulch aids seed germination by maintaining moisture levels and moderating temperature changes in the soil. The wood fibers in the mulch also “tie” the soil particles together to prevent soil erosion.
Applying the fertilizer with water distributes the nutrients uniformly and makes them readily available to the growing plants.
Seed suspended in the slurry can be spread uniformly and absorbs water which decreases germination time.
Tackifiers “glue” the soil particles to each other and to the mulch to prevent soil erosion.
