Federal and State laws are becoming much stricter on dirtmoving.
Any soil that is disturbed during construction is subject to measures to
control water runoff and erosion. Violators can face heavy fines!
Due to the problem of finding anyone to do hydroseeding or
strawblowing, we have invested in equipment to do, not only our own
jobs, but to do outside work as well.
Lawn seeding with complete, amendments, binders, and wood mulch,
(Called Hydromulching) can be done for much less than the cost of sod,
and can produce a first mowing in six weeks under favorable conditions.
We have purchased over 10,000 lbs. of materials in order to get bulk
prices to keep our costs down to our customers. Even so, we only
recommend Hydromulching for lawns over 1000 square feet.
The hydroseeder can also seed grass, flowers, or other forms of
vegetation, as well as apply binders, fertilizers and tackifiers to hold soil
in place. We are planting test sites with wildflower mixtures at this time
to demonstrate what we can do with Hydromulching. Since we have a
smaller, (650 gallon) machine with a large engine, we can get into
areas that many machines could not handle. Since we have our own
2000 gallon water truck to supply extra loads if needed, we think we
have the ideal combination for most jobs.
This picture shows material being loaded into the machine.
