In Arizona’s Ironseed Forest National Monument, a group of individuals gathers frequently to increase the vegetation of native species to the area following an outbreak of a foreign plant that is killing out the other native plants.
With an area that’s known as a high-risk area for fires, it’s difficult for these individuals to dig up the foreign plants and weed them out, according to an interview with NPR. But one effective measure that may be consistent with their long-term goals of restoring natural species back to the area for enjoyment is hydroseeding.
Hydroseeding is an effective way — first introduced in the 1950s — to effectively plant a mass amount of seeds to an area for regrowth. However, it isn’t for just any common Joe to try. It requires Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved professionals and high-tech equipment.
The group of Arizona native species lovers struggling to restore life to this area would find true benefits in this highly productive method of plant renewal.

Instead of using dry planting or sod to plant your seeds this year, how would you like to simply spray the area you want planted with a hose and be done with it? This is an option with hydroseeding, which could be extremely beneficial for your planting habits.

Invented in the United States in the 1950s, it was first used in the UK in the 1960s. Hydroseeding works by spraying a slurry of seeds, mulch and additives such as fertilizer using a large hose. The slurry is usually stored in a tank that is kept either on a truck or trailer, although helicopters have been used to spray larger areas.
While it may seem more complicated that the usual dry or sod methods of planting, hydroseeding does have advantages. If you want to add seeds to a large area, hydroseeding takes much less time and will produce results more quickly. It works very well on hills to help control erosion, and makes placing the seeds easier. It costs less than using sod, although it does cost more than regular seeding.
If hydroseeding is something you’re interested in, it’s very important to have a knowledgeable professional working with you. We at Soil Tech are always happy to offer our expert advice!
Soil Tech is known for creating earth friendly solutions to manmade problems. One such service is the hydroseeding of soil or land that needs re-vegetation. Sometimes, through construction or waste, we destroy our surroundings. One way to bring back plant life and even stabilize the soil that has been damaged from water run off and mud slides is to use the latest hydroseeding method to quickly restore plant life.
Hydroseeding works much faster than sodding and planting new plant life. Also, hydroseeding increases the chances of plant growth and decreases the chances of plant death because seeds that are hydroseeded actually take to their new soil extremely well. Hydroseeding can regenerate damaged lands and restore the natural environment to its once awesome beauty. Not only does it create a great aesthetic sight, but it actually helps the natural ecosystem return to its normal state.
Land reclamation is what Soil Tech knows best. At the moment, the human species only knows of earth restoration. We have predictions and actually good scientific evidence indicating that the continual destruction of the earth may lead to an uninhabitable earth in the future. But in the end, we do not truly know what our waste will do to the earth (and us) in the future. Some argue that the earth has the ability to repair itself and there is also good evidence showing that this argument is viable. However, that should not be a reason for why we should continue destroying our planet. The safest and most rational way to approach the problem of waste is to decrease the amount and find ways to eliminate it all together. The famous recycling, reduce and reuse motto should be something each nation should preach and follow.
Companies like Soil Tech focus on making sure that if the earth is destroyed by man-made materials and developments, they will help to regenerate the area, bring life back to the habitat, restore the ecosystem and bring the earth back to its natural state. Using the latest technology and environmentally friendly chemicals, we can bring back nature and make it stay. Hydroseeding is a great and innovative way to generate plant life in barren areas. Companies and even households should look into planting life in this most effective way. Land reclamation is also very important for future habitation and cultivation.
Wastelands are a waste of land and they need not be this way. With our professional staff of construction workers, engineers and laborers, we can rebuild this earth and bring it back to its nominal state using technology. The goal of Soil Tech is to balance construction with nature. This means that we will do everything we can to leave with the earth and not simply on it. With all the technology and methods we have today, there is no reason why we can not live in peace with Mother Nature and keep it safe and healthy for the next generation to enjoy.

What is hydroseeding? Hydroseeding is a planting process which utilizes a slurry of seed and mulch. The slurry is transported in a tank sprayed over prepared ground in a uniform layer. Our process is effective, but it is extremely important to have it done by the highly trained professionals at Soil-Tech. We at Soil-Tech are the hydroseeding experts in the Southwest. We bring life to places that were once lifeless and barren. It is not just our job. It is our life’s mission!
One of the ways we give the gift of life to once-dead areas is to utilize drought tolerant plants. What kinds of plants are considered drought tolerant? A drought tolerant plant is one that can survive a dry spell of more than 2 or 3 months without supplemental watering. These hardy plants are the prime contributors to the beauty of a desert landscape. They are also intrinsic to our process of environmental restoration, holding down vital nutrients and water in the soil, ensuring a fertile space for life to thrive.
Restoring life to the desert soil is what we at Soil-Tech do best. If you need to restore a damaged habitat back to a pristine wilderness, or add fertility to desert soil, there is only company to trust and that is Soil Tech.
The Mojave desert is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring landscapes found anywhere in North America. Although this sparsely-populated terrain receives less than 3 inches of rain per year, and is otherwise uninhabitable without the modern conveniences of air conditioning, many plants and animals are indigenous to this environment…the Mojave, in fact, boasts more than 2,000 species of plants ranging from Joshua trees to run-of-the-mill tumbleweeds.
At Soil-Tech, located in Las Vegas, our job is to maintain the natural beauty of the desert via our vast product line that encompasses services such as revegetation, habitat restoration, mine reclamation, dust control, and many other items that protect our native resources. That behemoth construction project at Hoover Dam that, when completed, will allow for smooth, uninterrupted travel from NV to AZ has left huge rock scars that we have been tasked with repairing once the project is complete. By the time we’re done, it will appear as if man never laid a foot on the amazing red rocks that encompass the Hoover Dam pass.
Our commitment to ensuring the highest level of land reclamation has positioned us as the industry leader for such services in Nevada, Arizona, California, Utah and much of the Southwest basin. From small projects, such as golf course hydroseeding and post-construction beautification, to large, government-operated programs such as Hoover Dam, you can count on Soil Tech to deliver the Mojave desert back to is stunning, natural state once construction has ended.
