Hydroseeding Terms

Hydroseeding is a process of spreading grass seed that is mixed with water and other substances. It is distributed with a hose and spray attachment. The water may also contain additional ingredients such as mulch and fertilizer. Hydroseeding is commonly used to quickly grow a lawn. There are a few terms you should know when considering the process.

  • Slurry - Slurry is the substance that is sprayed during hydroseeding. It contains seeds, mulch and sometimes fertilizer. The mulch provides the organic environment that will help the seeds grow. Fertilizer boosts growth by providing other elements essential for growth. Sometimes the slurry contains green dye that aids in even distribution.
  • Broadcast - Spreading seed across a vast area, using manual or mechanical means.
  • Hydroseeder - A machine used to mix the slurry and pump it through a hydraulic hose system.
  • Mulch - An organic substance that provides an ideal environment for seed development. It may be composed of paper, wood, cardboard or other materials.
  • Erosion Control - A landscape's resistance to degradation, which is caused by water or other natural processes cutting through the soil. The use of mulch and specialized slurry formulas help the turf retain moisture and resist erosion.
  • Sod - Flats of established turf with their roots intact. Sod is an alternative to hydroseeding for establishing a lawn quickly, but is generally more expensive.
  • Germination - The activation and growth of a seed into a plant. Grass seed in a hydroseeding system utilize mulch, sunlight and water to emerge and further grow into green blades of grass.

    Hydroseeding is an affordable process that allows gardeners and landscapers to plant grass, trees and other seeds over a large area, for low costs. Some other names for hydroseeding include hydro-mulching and hydraulic mulch seeding. In this process, mulch and seeds are combined together, and then sprayed over the lawn area that needs to be planted. It can either be sprayed from a hose, a commercial truck, or even an airplane. In the case of airplanes, this method is commonly used to restore hillsides after wildfires. The soil is sprayed completely over the burned area, and then allowed to grow. Hydroseeding first began in the United States in the 1950s, when the first machine was invented. Instead of the standard technique of planting the seeds with fertilizer, watering them, and then awaiting germination, until the yard has fully grown in, this allowed for fast and easy planting for landscaping contractors and homeowners a like. It is especially popular for planting a golf turf. Another popular use of the technique is over burn areas, as plants help protect against erosion. Though, this requires, as we mentioned before, different equivalent, like a plane. When installing the grass shoots, there are a few different options. For instance, they can be mixed into a fiber mulch, or followed by a spray of water to keep the ground moist. Other equipment and supplies, like hoses and watering trucks, are also necessary for the hydroseeding process. Check out more about the process, or equipment needed trough the internet.
