Erosion Control Hydroseeding
Hydroseeding is an effective method of erosion control in South Carolina, it involves the use of fertilizer, seed, water and wood-fiber mixture spread over a certain area using special spraying equipment. Different types of seeds can be used for this purpose including wild herbs, grass seeds and even woody plants.
Additionally, various soil amendments or stabilizers can be applied in the mixture based on the condition of the ground where it would be used. Hydroseeding is a much better alternative to sodding, it’s fast and simple to apply plus it will leave your lawn looking healthy and beautiful at a fraction of the price of sodding.
Liquid seeding is very effective in controlling soil erosion because the germinating seed is usually balanced in a nutrient-rich mulch, this seals in the moisture and holds the top-soil in position to prevent erosion. All these factors contribute to having just the right conditions for producing a lush-green lawn much faster.
Benefits of Erosion Control Hydroseeding:
It’s recommendable to do a soil test before using the liquid seed erosion control technique on your site. This will help determine what nutrients your soil is lacking so that they can be included in the mulch. During this process, layers of soil would be removed from the ground and sent back to the lab for analysis. The results shall then be sent back to you so that proper nutrients can be applied to the soil at the moment of planting, this ensures the plants are healthy enough to prevent soil erosion upon germination.
Hydroseeding ensures that seeds grow to have long and sturdy roots, which cannot be easily uprooted by environmental conditions such as heavy rain or wind.
In summary, to ensure that your soil erosion prevention project is successful, remember to water your newly hydroseeded lawn at least 2 to 3 times a day. Nevertheless, take care that the lawn isn’t saturated with water as this may damage the plants. The goal is having optimal moisture levels for ideal germination results, a handheld garden hose or typical irrigation system can be used for watering.
