Established in early 2003, transitioned to hydroseeding in 2008
Initially we provided services to the DOD focusing in both the United States and overseas.
Hydroseeding began as a business extension in 2008
providing options to builders, commercial contractors, municipalities, and home owners an alternative to expensive sod and a better option to blown straw mulch (which we now offer) or rolled erosion control products (RECP's).
Hydroseeding or hydromulching (same-same) is a process where mulch, seed, fertilizer, tacktifier (glue) and soil amendments are mixed in a machine creating a slurry that is sprayed onto bare soil. This process enables seeds to rapidly germinate and grow while the mulch keeps the soil and seed in place (limiting erosion and increasing seedling survival). The largest benefit of hydroseeding is limiting erosion, followed closely by accelerated germination time (warmer temperatures in the mulch and seeds are pre-soaked) and improving seedling survival by providing a mosture retention blanket.
While these #'s are not be "scientific", our experience showsd that hydroseeding provides around 40-50% more seeds germinate ON SITE with hydroseeding than privided with blown straw mulch or RECP's while shortening your germination time.
Are you tired of going to Lowe's, Home Depot, or other stores and buying seed, following the instructions... and watching your $, time, seed, and soil wash away down the storm drain when it rains? Hydroseeding keeps that from happening (+) using NCHydroseeding ensures that when you select a turf, it will grow on your site, grow better than other seeding techniques, and get you the lawn that you want.
In real estate it's all about location-location-location. In commercial seeding its all about ground cover . Hydroseeding provides instant ground cover (mulch) and an an improved probability to get permanent ground cover over other seeding techniques.
Ground preparation is the most important thing that can be done to improve the probability of turf or groundcover establishment, followed closely by irrigation/watering. . Sunlight and Temperatures are the other two, and unless you cut down trees or move buildings the "suilnlight limitation" isn't something that can be addressed.
We can execute final ground preparatioin using tractors with TR3 Ground Preparation Rakes or Aerovators, skidsteers with land levelers or power rakes, Ventrac Slope tractors with Aerovators or Soil Preparators (1 acre or smaller), and in some occations walk behind TurfTec soil preparators.
Silt is the largest pollution in USA and the World regarding water pollution. The best way to address silt is to prevent it from leaving a construction site. Hydroseeding a proven technique to reduce the potential of receiving a Stop Work Order or DENR/EPA fines. Sheet Erosion is the #1 contributor to silt transport, and hydroseeding significantly reduces the potential for sheet erosion. Slope angles, length, and soil composition determine what the "right hydroseed product" is, but we can treat slopes from flat to 1:1 slope.
We are a seeding company providing soil preparation, fertilization, hydroseeding, Ph adjustments (liming) aeration, and other erosion control services.
