Hydoseeding is a blend of seed, wood fiber mulch, fertilizer and water. The slurry is mixed in a hydroseeder and sprayed through a fire hose onto your hillside. The seeds germinate more successfully and the new seedlings thrive with the greater protection provided by the mulch. Ground cover flats like Gazania flowers cost about $5.00 per flat, where hydroseed is only 10 cents per sq. ft.
in most southern California locations.
