Hydroseeding is a great solution for planting on large-scale home or commercial construction sites. If you are weighing your options between dry seeding, planting sod, and hydroseeding, here are some key benefits of hydroseeding that make it a great choice.
- Quick Germination- Unfortunately, dry seeding a large construction site may not be as effective as hoped. Dry seeds may not take to the soil and could leave large brown patches unfilled and left to drainage issues in the long-term. Hydroseeding is an ideal alternative because it allows for quick germination due to the mixture of seed and nutrients being laid on the soil. You will have fewer concerns about the quality or effectiveness of seeding when hydroseeding is used.
- Inhibits Erosion- Hydroseeding is also an ideal alternative to dry seeding and sod installation because it effectively inhibits erosion. This is especially important so that cleared areas will properly drain, and the soil will not erode too quickly after construction. The seed mixture with hydroseeding can be altered to ensure that a home or business site looks and operates its best under wet conditions.
- Cost Effective- While sod installation may seem like the fastest and most effective solution, hydroseeding may in fact be more cost effective. If you’re comparing prices during the construction process, you may find that hydroseeding offer fast results without the high price tag of sod installation.
