Hydraulic Seed Rig

  • Our hydraulic seeding plant, used with HydraCX, is excellent;
  • because it reduces health and safety concerns
  • where there is high erosion control risk
  • where there are little or no soils
  • when there is a need for rapid establishment
  • where there are steep slopes and uneven ground
  • because it reduces costs and increases success in comparison to more conventional geotextile blankets
