Each of these techniques and topics will be discussed and we hope they will enrich your experience, giving you more to pull from as you move forward with your projects.
Seeding and Mulching Techniques
There are several techniques we will be going over that pertain to seeding and mulching. For seeding, these topics will include hydroseeding, aerial seeding, drill seeding, imprint seeding, broadcast seeding, and topsoil and subsoil decompaction. For mulching, we will cover wood mulching, hydro mulching, aerial mulching, soil binding, and straw, grass, and cornstalk mulching.
In terms of erosion control, we will be focusing on erosion control devices or ECDs. These include silt fences and silt socks, straw wattles, rock socks, inlet protection, erosion bales, EC blankets, dewatering, and dust control. We will discuss each of these along with their benefits. We hope that this discussion will help you as you move forward with your own projects and as you consider all aspects of your projects and their future.
