Hydroseeding (or hydraulic mulch seeding, hydromulching) is a planting process that used a slurry mix of seed, mulch, fertilizer, and various combinations of bio-stimulants, moisture retention co-polymers, tackifiers, and other additives, which are then combined with water to form a slurry that is sprayed onto the ground to establish turfgrass (vegetation) and control erosion. These ingredients are mixed in a mounted tank that contains either a jet agitation system or a mechanical system which creates a homogenous slurry that is then sprayed over prepared ground in a uniform manner. our preferred blend of seed is a Premium Sunny / Shade Mix which includes the following 3 types of grass seed.

Erosion control is the practice of preventing or controlling water erosion in many various areas of construction, Effective erosion controls handle surface runoff and are important techniques in preventing water pollution, soil loss, wildlife habitat loss and property loss.
One of the most important things to do in preparation for any type of site for hydroseeding is by adding screened topsoil and finish grading. Add a minimum of 2″-4″ of topsoil, remove existing stones and debris, and working soil to brake up and loosen out lumps is crucial to a successful application. Topsoil soil mixes can be applied by hand, by a tractor or skid steer or mechanically blown into place with a blower truck. Finish grading can be accomplished by hand raking, power raking (called a Harley Rake), rototilling, or with other mechanical devices such as a rock hound which removes larger rocks and crushed concrete debris often leftover during the rough grading process.
