Anyone in the business of landscaping knows that a hilly or uneven area can be very difficult to work with. The challenges of organizing and moving resources mixed with the many natural elements working against you can make planning and execution far more complicated than landscaping a more even space.
Erosion is one of the challenges that is especially important to guard against. No one can control the forces of nature like wildlife, sun, wind and rain. They are very unpredictable and can come at any given time to cause major issues on freshly cultivated soil. And when hills are involved, issues like surface runoff and landslides have the potential to undo all the hard work you put in.
Fortunately, there is a cost-effective method available today. It’s called hydroseeding, and it involves spraying slurry – a combination of seed, fertilizer and mulch that’s held together by a special bonding agent or tackifier – over the entire area in order to cover the bare soil in an even layer of the mixture. Also, the slurry can be transported in a tank – often mounted on a truck or trailer – so we can handle areas of all sizes almost anywhere at about a quarter of the price of sod to install.
