Hydroseeding (or hydraulic mulch seeding, hydro-mulching, hydraseeding) is a planting process that uses a slurry of seed and mulch. The slurry is transported in a tank, either truck- or trailer-mounted and sprayed over prepared ground. Helicopters have been used to cover larger areas. Aircraft application may also be used on burned wilderness areas after a fire, and in such uses may contain only soil stabilizer to avoid introducing non-native plant species.

Enhance germination rates and seedling survival! Use Hydretain as part of your hydroseeding routine to provide more plant usable water in between scheduled waterings or rainfall. Applied with your seed, Hydretain attracts and collects individual water molecules, converting unavailable moisture vapor into plant usable water droplets. This process

Hydroseeding for Transportation Projects

Hydroseeding for Transportation Projects

Hydroseeding has connections with most forms of transportation, including revegetation around highways, airports, and mass transit projects. It is even a part of water-related travel, if one considers work done on the grounds at marinas, shipping channels, and ports.

Erosion Control Methods for Steep Slopes

Erosion Control Methods for Steep Slopes

Huge projects like the widening of US 202 in Pennsylvania span several years and several seasons. Stormwater and erosion control is an important part of the planning process, and a variety of soil erosion control devices play a role. Changing topography and limited highway easements sometimes result in steep slopes

Hydroseeding Means Variety

Hydroseeding work, like all outdoor jobs, can have some unpleasant aspects. The weather can be perfect and then turn miserably cold or blisteringly hot. Working in the back country, far off road, increases the chances of encountering mountain lions, rattlesnakes, or other creatures best avoided. And if it’s hot and

Post-Fire Erosion Control: A California Case Study

Post-Fire Erosion Control: A California Case Study

On August 17, 2013, a hunter’s illegal fire blazed out of control and started what would become the third-largest forest fire in California history. In the end, a quickly mobilized team from Selby’s Soil Erosion Control and a fast-curing bonded fiber matrix (BFM) from Profile Products would stabilize charred slopes and prevent

Stabilizing With Seed

As the following projects show, hydroseeding work varies tremendously. A project might take place in a residential yard or extend for hundreds of acres. It might be along a road where drivers barely notice it, or it might add to the beauty of a natural area that thousands of visitors
