Voight Contracting and Evergreen are strategic alliance partners. Together, we can address your Direct Drill Seeding, Hydro-seeding, Hydro-mulching, Erosion Control issues.
Hydro-seeding is a planting process which utilises a slurry of seed and mulch. The slurry is sprayed over prepared ground in a uniform layer.
Hydro-seeding is an alternative to the traditional process of broadcasting or sowing dry seed. It promotes quick germination and inhibits soil erosion. The mulch in the hydroseed mixture which assists in maintaining the moisture level of the seed and seedlings. The slurry often has other ingredients including fertiliser, tackifying agents, green dye and other additives.
Starting a lawn by hydroseeding is considerably cheaper than laying sod/turf and quicker than using seed. It is also used to spread mixtures of wildflower and tree/shrub seeds or turf grasses for erosion control. The process is called stolonising (or hydro-stolonising) when the slurry contains stolons or rhizomes instead of seed.
