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.
Read on and see some of the sure elaborations that will certainly make you see that this is one of the seeding methods that actually compares to none of the many methods. 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. One is the effectiveness of the mulch as one of the techniques to seeding. In fact, you will hear hydroseeding and hydromulching being used interchangeably all thanks to the many benefits and effectiveness that it so affords as a mulching technique for seeding. All who have been doing some seeding at least appreciate the fact that there is a lot of effectiveness that is added to the seeding process and success when there is applied some mulch.
One of the most common problems of the traditional broadcast seeding and mulch application that it has been unable to cure is that of premature evaporation. This happens to be so even in as much as one of the greatest needs for your grass to grow being mulch and moisture availed by the mulch. Thus it is a fact that as you look forward to having the most of your seeded plants, you need to ensure that you have such good seeding that can actually retain 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. Besides this is the fact that the traditional straw coverings will often carry with them some bit of “weed seed”. 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.
