With Nature in mind.

GeoGrow Hydroseeding

GeoGrow provides a nationwide in-house specialist hydroseeding service that supports our core retaining wall product Rootlok, a vegetated retaining wall system. The hydroseeding process is used to deliver fast and cost-effective vegetation for various types of applications like public open spaces, steep slopes, erosion protection and waterways. It is an ideal technique for difficult to reach areas, where traditional sowing methods are impractical, such as road embankments, rail, environmental and large projects.
 

Hydroseeding is a method of combining water, high-performance thermally refined wood fibre, seeds, fertilisers and tackifiers. The materials are mixed in a hydroseeding machine to form a slurry, which is then sprayed onto surfaces to quickly establish vegetation. This process is sometimes referred to as hydro-mulching. The slurry acts as a temporary erosion blanket which locks the seed in place, protecting it during germination.

 

Due to its advantages and benefits over conventional seeded processes, hydroseeding is an ever increasing and go to technique for vegetating larger spaces and infrastructure works.

Retaining Walls
& Vertical Sowing

Hydroseeding is the ideal seeding option following the installation of a retaining wall such as Rootlok solution as it quickly establishes vegetation while saving time and money.

Erosion Control

A tailored Hydroseed package can be the perfect solution to erosion control when it comes to preventing the movement of soil caused by rainfall, snow, ice, irrigation systems and other natural elements. Not only this but it also provides stability for particles and nutrients that will prolong and enhance the quality of the soil.

Large Open Areas

Our state of the art hydroseeding machinery are purpose built to cover large areas of land. Our machinery has a reach of 140m at any one time with a spray jet distance of up to 15m.

Wildflower
Mixtures

Wildflower is essential for improving and encouraging biodiversity providing essential habitats for pollinators such as insects, birds and other wildlife. Wildflower also has the aesthetic benefit of painting the quintessential colourful picture of Britain that we all know and love.

Our Process

Hydroseeding is a method of combining water, high-performance thermally refined wood fibre, seeds, fertilisers and tackifiers. The materials are mixed in a hydroseeding machine to form a slurry, which is then sprayed onto surfaces to quickly establish vegetation. This process is sometimes referred to as hydro-mulching. 
The delivered mulch provides the ideal environment to achieve faster germination and a more even establishment of vegetation, providing greater seed contact with soils, geotextile bags and substrates (using erosion control products such as erosion control blankets, coir netting and high-performance turf reinforcement mats).

 

All our hydroseeding materials are 100% organic, biodegradable and non-toxic, making it suitable for all land and water course applications. Various grass seed mixes, including flowering shrubs and small tree species can be used to the clients specification using the hydroseeding method. Seed mixes including low-maintenance, shade and drought tolerant, riverbank mix, wildflower and amenity mixes are all suitable mixes for hydroseeding large open spaces and erosion control areas.

Our Quality Guarantee

GeoGrow Hydroseed use high-quality products in all of our hydroseeding applications to ensure you are left with a premium finish. Our experienced technicians are fully trained in a variety of applications which include open grassed areas, pond areas, water margins as well as Rootlok walls.

We are continuously looking to improve our products and our methods of installation. Our team of technicians and engineers are committed to the research and scientific collaboration with environmental strategist's for the betterment and development of a greener future.

GeoGrow understands the erosion control market combining ERC products & methods together with using our hydroseeding techniques as the medium to create sustainable vegetated areas. We use soft

bio-engineering and high performance techniques as a creditable alternative to hard armoured systems.
