Hydromulch, Hydroseed & Irrigation


Hydroseeding (or hydraulic mulch seeding, hydromulching, hydraseeding) is a planting process which utilizes a blend of seeds, mulch, water and tackifier. The slurry is transported in a tank and sprayed over prepared ground in a uniform layer. It promotes quick germination and inhibits soil erosion.

The Big Green specializes in the Re-Vegetation and Reclamation of Industrial, Commercial and Residential job sites. For over 20 years we have worked with General Contractors and can mobilize quickly to help finish your project to a returned state.

There is a wide range of variations that can fit anyone’s taste and lifestyle. With a combination of low water plants, drought tolerant sod, mulches, decayed granite, river rock and other material we can reduce your water usage without loosing the beauty of your yard.

Fortunately many of these low water plants live right here in the San Antonio area. A few examples are Lantana, Salvia, Cactus, Monkey grass, Mountain Laurels, Sagos, Rosemary, Nandinas, and various Holly plants to name just a few. Ground coverage can include such choices as Asiatic Jasmine or a drought tolerant sod. There are varieties of sod that are more tolerant to drought and require less water. For a full sun area Celebration Bermuda grass was rated number one by both Texas A&M and SAWS for drought recovery. Meaning it recovered better and return to its original condition over any other grass in this region. Palisades zoysia is another top choice and is a sun and shade friendly variety for those who have a combination of both. And if heavy shade is your option, Palmetto St Augustine has proven time and again to be an excellent and hearty solution.
