Hydroseeding Underway At Student Housing

Workers have been Hydroseeding the property around the student housing on 9th Street at Iris Street. Hydroseeding or hydraulic mulch seeding is a planting process, which utilizes a slurry of seed and mulch. The slurry is transported in a tank, either truck- or trailer-mounted and sprayed over prepared ground. Helicopters have been used to cover larger areas. Aircraft application may also be used on burned wilderness areas after a fire, and in such uses may contain only soil stabilizer to avoid introducing non-native plant species. Hydroseeding is an alternative to the traditional process of broadcasting or sowing dry seed. Photo by Carol A. Clark/ladailypost.com
