Hydroseeding is used for planting grass or vegetation on embankments, hills, slopes, and other difficult-to-reach locations. It can also be used to plant large lawns. Hydroseeding is an alternative to the traditional process of broadcasting or sowing dry seed. The hydroseeding mixture, also known as slurry, is transported in a tank and sprayed over prepared ground in a uniform layer. The key reason for using hydroseeding over dry seeding is that the seed can be sprayed with a tackifier, e.g., guar gum, which helps prevent the seed from washing away before it has germinated. The mulch component of the slurry serves several functions: it provides temporary protection from wind and water erosion; helps retain moisture around the seeds, and provides natural nitrogen as it decomposes. In addition, if soil erosion does occur, the mulch component forms a protective blanket on top of any exposed soil to help prevent additional erosion.
