There are quite a number of benefits that come with hydroseeding and as such one may be confused where to start with the mention of these. However, to mention but some of the benefits that come with hydroseeding as a seeding method to use are those such as its overall effectiveness, cost effectiveness, flexibility, reliability and compatibility.
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. The first thing that we will take a look at are some of the benefits that hydroseeding has over the traditional broadcast seeding methods.
First of the reasons as to why hydroseeding happens to be as beneficial as compared to the traditional broadcast methods is that of the effectiveness it has as compared to this and the reasons are as many. Mulching and effectiveness of mulching is one of the benefits that makes hydroseeding as a method more effective as compared to traditional broadcast methods. 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. Mulch, as is known to all, is so important for effective seeding.
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 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. 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 particularly where hydroseeding as a technique comes in and offers as much benefit as it not only ensures that there is such sufficient moisture laid down with the seed but as well the hydroseed coating as well ensures that there is as little evaporation of the moisture far much more than what would be alternatively achieved by the traditional straws. The other benefit of the use of hydroseeding for your mulch over the straws is in the fact that the traditional mulch or straws as we know them to be always have some bits of weed seed that they come with. Protection against soil erosion is the other benefit that comes with the application of hydromulching as a seeding method. The other fact that makes hydroseeding beneficial is the fact that it adds to the humus content of the soil upon breakdown.
