Hydroseeding or hydro-mulching is the mixing of seed, fertilizer, and natural binding amendments with water and a wood fiber mulch to cover the exposed soil and control erosion until germination of the seed occurs.
Hydroseed is required on a jobsite wherever there is a longterm exposure of disturbed soil. Exposed soil will erode silt and sediment into the surrounding landscape or public water system if not properly controlled.
Regulatory agencies often have a demand that is higher than a construction company might anticipate. In many areas, disturbed soil requires adequate erosion control measures in place within 48 hours. These erosion control demands can usually be satisfied with hydroseeding. For decades, Terrasol has fulfilled the sediment control demands placed on construction companies by providing hydroseed services.
Sometimes the erosion potential on a jobsite requires an approach other than hydroseeding. We offer many services from blown or tackified straw applications for temporary erosion control to BioTechnical solutions for long term control of erosion including sediment ponds and silt fencing.
