What is hydromulching?
Hydromulching, often referred to as hydroseeding, is a process in which a mixture or “slurry” of fertilizer, grass seed, dye, wood, paper mulch and water is sprayed over the ground to provide erosion control and ensure lush, beautiful grass in just a few weeks.
The mulch, which acts as a growth catalyst for the seed, is key to effective hydroseeding.Central Texas Hydroseed offers a variety of mulch blends to cover a wide array of projects. Our team of experts considers many factors when choosing the appropriate “slurry” or mixture for each project. This four-part slurry consists of:
- Mulch (selection tailored to application site)
- A Fertilizer Component Tailored to the Application Site
- Tackifier to Ensure Uniform Seed to Soil Contact
- Soil amendments based on site specific soil test
We offer several different types of hydroseeding mulches, and our selection is constantly expanding. There are a variety of factors to consider when choosing a mulch blend, such as cost, slope stabilization, soil stabilization, and local availability. The more common hydroseeding mulches on the market today are:
- Erosion Control Mulch: BFM’s, FRM’s, EFM’s, SMM’s, etc.
- Wood Fiber Mulch
- Wood/Paper Blend Mulch
- Alternate Daily Cover
There are countless benefits of using our hydromulching services, but the reason we encourage our customers to choose this method is because it works. Additionally, hydromulching is the most cost-effective approach for many commercial and residential projects. Hydromulching is particularly effective on projects in high traffic areas with expected wear and tear.
Some benefits of choosing hydromulching include:
- Easy application and maintenance
- Moisture retention
