Hydroseeding is a planting process involving a slurry of seed, fertilizer, water, and mulch, and a big hose and pump to spray it with. The mix is sprayed on to areas where seeding is difficult or otherwise unsuccessful. The mulch aides in retaining moisture, and the water and fertilizer feed the seeds. This prevents erosion because the mulch creates a gradient for the hill to “grab on to”.

- Aides in erosion control
- Fast results, high germination rates (3-4 weeks)
- Cheaper than sod
- A little more expensive than broadcast seeding
