There are quite a number of the benefits of hydroseeding and as such one may be overwhelmed where to start counting of the benefits. Some of the benefits that make this seeding method a nod when it comes to making a choice of the many options are such as cost effectiveness, reliability, compatibility, flexibility and overall effectiveness.
As a matter of fact, this is one method of seeding that actually compares to none of the methods one may have known and as such have been detailed in the following lines. We will first take a look at the some of the benefits that hydroseeding has over the traditional broadcast methods of seeding.
First is the fact that hydroseeding happens to be more effective as compared to the traditional broadcast seeding method and this is for a number of reasons. Mulching and effectiveness of mulching is one of the benefits that makes hydroseeding as a method more effective as compared to traditional broadcast methods. Hydroseeding has in fact been referred to as hydromulching thanks to the degree of effectiveness it has. If at all you have been into seeding, by action or by interest, then you must have already realized that one of the things that happen to be so important in so far as success of the seeding goes is the application of mulch.
Premature evaporation has been one of the most common issues and problems that has been with the traditional broadcast seeding and mulching that has never been effectively dealt with in the method. This is notwithstanding the fact that moisture is one of the things that your grass will need to grow. As such, for you to achieve the most of your grown grass, you need to ensure that you have such good seeding that retains as much moisture for as long as is possible.
This is where the hydroseeding technique comes in with as much benefits as it not only ensures that as much moisture is laid down with the seeding but as well the hydroseed coating prevents against premature evaporation far much better than what you would achieve with the straws. The other reason why it is so advantageous to use the hydroseeding technique lies in the fact that the traditional straw coverings will in most cases have with them some bit of “weed seed” in them. Protection against soil erosion is the other benefit that comes with the application of hydromulching as a seeding method. The other benefit that comes with the use of the hydroseeding technique is the fact that upon breakdown, the components add to the humus content of the soil.
