A process of mixing seed, fertilizer, amendments and fiber mulch with water in correct proportions inside a tank and spraying the homogeneous slurry using a mechanically agitated machine onto prepared designated areas in need of erosion control, protection, and re-vegetation.

Hydroseeding is the process of mixing mulch, seed, and amendments such as fertilizer or compost into a hydroseeder. Once the material is thoroughly mixed the material is hydraulically applied onto the exposed soil.

We are distributers of HMI products who has over forty years of experience in the erosion control and hydroseeding industry. We also carry all the amendments needed for a successful project, including mechanically agitated hydromulchers, tackifiers, and hydro compost.


Hydroseeding (or hydraulic mulch seeding, hydro-mulching, hydraseeding) is a planting process that uses a slurry of seed and mulch. It is often used as an erosion control technique on construction sites, as an alternative to the traditional process of broadcasting or sowing dry seed.

Hydroseeding is a process where you take wood or paper cellulose mulch, water, seed, fertilizer, and tacking agents mix them together in a specialized agitating hydroseed machine to create a mulch slurry, which is then sprayed on the ground with the machines high pressure hose or turret gun.

Why Hydroseed?

This one step process of seeding creates a layer of mulch which acts as a soil stabilizer to prevent water and wind erosion, also allowing for easier seeding where heavy, bulky equipment may not be able to seed. The mulches unique ability to retain moisture allows the new seedlings to germinate quicker than traditional seeding methods creating a beautiful lush lawn in a fraction of the time. It is also a cost effective alternative to sod.


Hydroseeding has been around since the 50s in the US. It was initially developed as a way to spread fertilizer and seed. During this time equipment manufacturers such as Finn and Bowie started to appear in the market, but self-built hydroseeders were also common. Mulch manufacturers and mulch as an additive were rare, but slowly started to fill the market from small factories. Mulch was homogenous and usually consisted paper, straw, or wood. Mulch was recognized as a viable medium which created a matrix of fiber that would protect seed germination and substantially increase sediment control of a long period of time

Hydroseeding quickly became one of the most efficient means of erosion control and would drastically started to change with varieties of tackifiers.

Custom Hydroseed Blends

It’s important when hydroseeding to take into consideration the seed blend being used this may vary depending on the application, soil type or the amount of sunlight and shade in the hydroseeded area. Some seed varieties thrive better under certain conditions and soil types. Fraaza Enterprises Inc. will evaluate each site and chose the correct seed blend for your specific needs or site conditions where some companies may only seed with one blend.
