About Hydroseeding

Hydroseeding is the application of a water, seed & hydromulch mixture with added nutrients in a slurry form onto an area you wish to vegetate. It’s the cost effective solution for seeding large areas quickly and is also the preferred solution for vegetating Flex MSE retaining walls and similar retaining structures.

Hydroseeding is also becoming a popular solution for erosion control, with a range of mulches available to meet challenging site requirements.

At HBB Geosales we have invested in Finn hydroseeders, recognised as one of the best hydroseeding machines available. These machines use a mechanical agitator to mix the mulch, seed and water instead of some machines which use a jet agitator.

A mechanical agitator allows the use of thicker mulches which are required for steeper surfaces to ensure adhesion where as the jet agitators are more restricted in their applications.

Key Benefits and Features

Seed Mixes

A wide range of different seed mixtures can be applied depending on the result you are trying to achieve.

We work closely with two highly experienced seed merchants and are we are able to offer everything from wild flower to bespoke client mixes.

When discussing your project the HBB team will also advise on which mulch is most suitable for your application taking into account variables such as soil condition, slopes and irrigation source.

We use mulch from one of the largest manufacturers who are continually researching and developing their mulch and erosion control technologies.

We can also offer Proganics an engineered soil media which is ideal for sites with depleted soil structure.
