Hydroseed is a mixture of several elements combined water that together form a ‘slurry.’ The ingredients will vary depending on the type of application and desired result, but generally include a mixture of varying grass seeds, a fibrous mulch material to maintain moisture, and sometimes fertilizer and/or a binding tackifier.
Basic applications will include the water, seed, and mulch only and is most common in residential applications and basic commercial applications. Fertilizer will promote seed germination and can easily be mixed in, but is not a typical requirement. Sometimes a ‘tackifier’ will be added, which helps bind the slurry mixture to the soil. This is typically used in areas where erosion could be a concern such as slopes or areas that may experience wind or water erosion.
Every ingredient in a hydroseed mixture has varying options within that ingredient, so it is very important that the application is well understood before simply proceeding with the hydroseeding application. The grass mixture itself has a huge variance, and should be well thought through in advance. There are always multiple grass seed varieties in every application, as some seeds will help with initial establishment, while the other mixes grow in more slowly and will eventually take over through time.
