Hydroseeding is a process of mixing tackifier, seed, fertilizer, mulch and special soil amendments into a slurry for seeding and erosion control. This slurry is sprayed over prepared ground for uniform coverage.

 Examples of Hydroseeding Materials

  • Tackifier – agent used to bind soil and mulch together for controlling wind and water erosion.

  • HydroGel – FINN HydroGel B is one example of a polymer that is able to store water and nutrients up to 500% its own size and weight.

  • Germination Enhancers – used to enhance the early stages of development in new seedlings.

  • Fertlizers – usually a high phosporus fertilizer is used for initial root growth. Proper nutrient needs are determined by a soil sample.

  • Green Dye – used for visual appearance when first applied

  • Seed – any variety of seed can be used in hydroseeding. Seed mixes will be determined by the ground composition, land uses and project requirements.

  • Mulch – used for erosion control, to maintain moisture levels and provide more growing medium for the seed. Pollock Landscaping uses a 100% wood mulch on all of its applications. Other mixes are available such as recycled paper, straw and blends upon special request
