Hydro Seeding / Native and Turf Type
Hydroseeding is a process which makes use of a mixture of fertilizer, grass seed, dye, wood and paper mulch and water. The mixture, called slurry, is the consistency of pancake batter and is sprayed over the ground resulting in exceptional erosion control and a thick beautiful lawn in just a few short weeks.
Just a few of the advantages of using a hydroseed application include:
- Easy application and maintenance
- Enhanced seed protection from weather and birds
- Retains moisture
- Adds nutrients to the soil
- Easily customizable
- Supports erosion control efforts on steep slopes and other hard to reach areas

Drill seeding is an agricultural process complete with a tractor and a specialized seeding attachment called a drill. No till seed drills place seeds directly into the soil installing up to 30 different species in one pass at the ideal depth without expensive soil preparation, saving the customer time and money. No-till seed drills eliminate tilling, which improves water absorption, increases organic matter retention, and salvages the nutrients in the soil, allowing re-vegetation. Because drill seeding used no wood/fiber mulch in the process, the cost is generally less. Drill seeding is advantageous on larger areas, more level areas, and projects where obtaining adequate water to hydroseed exists. No-till drills enable the customer to more easily vary the types of vegetation without having to replace or replenish the current soil. You can be assured Reed Hydromulching, Inc. uses only quality native seeds in our equipment. All equipment is thoroughly cleaned after every job so that the integrity of the planting can be ensured.
Benefits of Drill Seeding:
- Low cost compared to other erosion control treatments.
- Placing the seed in the soil typically leads to better vegetative cover than hydroseed techniques due to additional protection from the sun, wind, birds and like items that typically inhibit seed germination.
- Generally more successful than Seeding or Erosion Control (Hydroseed).
- Requires only one-half the seeding rate of Seeding or Erosion Control (Hydroseed).
- Vegetation provided by seed in this treatment provides long-term effective control of erosion

Forestry Mulching & Brush Clearing
We provide a safe and responsible solution to clear lots, pastures, over growth, land, right of ways, fence lines, shooting lanes, food plots, commercial lots, as well as residential properties. Skid Steer Mulching is the least damaging way to clean your property up without destroying it. Bulldozers and Metal Track Machines leave the ground demolished. We use Caterpillar Brand Equipment because the performance is unmatched by any other skid steer out there. So, when it comes to experience and a brand you trust.
Forestry Mulching is easily the quickest and most cost-effective way to clear your land and is replacing the previously used methods of bulldozing and drum style mulching of trees. Mulching is a unique 1 step process of cutting down and mulching trees and/or unwanted vegetation up to 8″ in diameter. What’s left behind is the most natural material to the environment, mulch that is beneficial both naturally and aesthetically.
