Arnold’s Custom Seeding offers an array of mulching services, such as hydromulching and imprint seeding, to help with erosion control and seeding. With hydromulching, the mulch is mixed with water and a seed mixture, then sprayed onto the ground. For imprint seeding, we tear up the existing weeds and turn them into mulch, which is laid on top of the imprints and seeds. We can also accommodate aerial-mulching for areas that cannot be accessed by land vehicles. Finally, we provide crimping services, along with mulching, to help secure the mulch to the ground, so it is not washed or blown away.
Soil mulching is an effective way to help reseed large areas of land. Especially when combined with a tackifier or crimping service. With these services, the mulch provides a protective layer over the seeds so that they are not carried away by water, animals or wind. Additionally, mulching helps retain moisture, and reduce the rate of evaporation to help increase the rate of seed germination. Furthermore, mulch provides additional organic material that eventually breaks down, which increases the available nutrients in the soil.
Soil mulching can be an effective method for temporary erosion control over bare soil. Mulching provides a protective layer over the soil that prevents wind from wearing it down. Additionally, soil mulch helps protect the ground from raindrops, which can act as minuscule bombs that displace the soil particles and affects the overall structure of the soil. Eventually, the mulch will decompose and introduce new organic material into the soil to increase its fertility, which combined with vegetation seeds, will help establish plant life that will act as long-term erosion mitigation.
