Paradigm Hydroseeding

The Paradigm Difference

As part of our commitment to offering our customers a luxurious lawn, Paradigm Hydroseed has invested in that latest state-of-the-art hydroseeding equipment. We are also focused on providing our customers with the most up-to-date knowledge of 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.

The lawn quality that hydroseeding affords is much healthier, greener and longer lasting than sodding or hand seeding applications because the root establishment is deeper into the soil and avoids the shock of being transplanted into foreign soils.

  • Bonded Fiber Matrix (BFM) Mulch
  • A continuous layer of elongated strands held together by a water-resistant bonding agent.
  • Wood Fiber Mulch
  • 100% wood fiber mulch is a high-quality mulch that works well for erosion control.
  • Blended Mulch
  • A blended mulch is exactly what it sounds like, a blend of wood and paper.
  • Bonded Fiber Matrix (BFM) Mulch
    It eliminates direct raindrop impact on soil (it has no holes greater than one millimeter in size), it allows no gaps between the product and the soil and it has a high water-holding capacity. A bonded fiber matrix will not form a water-insensitive crust that can inhibit plant growth, and it will biodegrade completely into materials that are known to be beneficial to plant growth.A bonded fiber matrix mulch is rather expensive and is therefore only recommended for those extreme projects involving heavily sloped areas where high-quality erosion control is paramount.
  • Wood Fiber Mulch
    We use only Enviro-Plus 100% wood fiber mulches. In addition to high-quality virgin wood fiber, the Enviro-Plus mix contains a special tackifier at 10% by weight (as opposed to the industry norm of 3%), which allows the binder to stick to soil particles, thus holding the seed and fertilizer in place. This binder is completely environmentally-friendly and breaks down to a healthy calcium and sulphur soil enhancer.If you’re trying to hold a slope less than 3:1 and do not want to pay the cost of a bonded fiber matrix, a 100% wood fiber mulch may be just what you need.
  • Blended Mulch
    A blended mulch is exactly what it sounds like, a blend of wood and paper. Where most companies will use a 60/40 blend (60% wood/40% paper), we use only high-quality Enviro-Plus 70/30 hydraulic mulch. This extra 10% does a lot to improve the erosion control aspects of the mulch as well as general protection against animals, foot traffic, and other elements. In addition, Enviro-Plus blended mulch contains the same special binding agent as their 100% wood fiber mulch, thus assuring a high adhesion rate to the soil, holding the seed and fertilizer in place.Blended mulches are the most popular type for most projects.

It germinates very quickly and you usually are mowing within 4-6 weeks in the cooler spring / late fall months and2-3 weeks in the summer. It requires sunshine and regular watering so growth rate is dependent on these working together.
