Do you have a large plot of land you are considering planting grass on? Are you looking to prevent sun damage, soil displacement, or eliminate soil erosion? If one or all of these apply, you may be researching the advantages and disadvantages of dry seed, sod, and hydroseeding.
Hydroseeding is a process for planting grass. This process is especially effective for large plots, hillsides, slopes, or other areas where planting is difficult. Hydroseeding is even used on construction sites as an erosion control technique, or anywhere from golf courses to mountainsides. The process involves using a slurry of seed, mulch, water, fertilizer, a variety of organic bonding agents, and green dye, to be able to see what has been sprayed. The slurry is then applied to the surface with pressure to allow for seed germination and turf development.
Rather than scattering grass seed or laying down sod, all hydroseeding involves is simply spraying the slurry over the planting area. For a large area, hydroseeding can be completed very quickly and grass growth can be seen in a week with mowing maintenance beginning in as few as 3 weeks. These are some other benefits of hydroseeding over dry seed and sod:
Before hydroseeding, you may need to consider dewatering, a crucial component of developing the land. Dewatering soil will remove any excess water, rendering it firmer and more optimal for planting, construction, and a variety of other projects.
Hydrograss Technologies, Inc. is especially equipped for dewatering projects because of our award-winning products, including floc logs, which are semi-hydrated gel polyacrylamide blocks that remove fine particles and reduce NTU values. Floc logs are a new and reliable method of removing contaminants from water.
Successfully growing grass over a large area, which was once a daunting task, has never been easier due to the advent of hydroseeding technology. If you are looking for hydroseeding or dewatering services, contact Hydrograss Technologies today.
