Temporary Seeding

Temporary seeding is the use of quickly germinating vegetative cover on disturbed areas to stabilize soils and control erosion.

For example, soil stockpiles, dikes, dams, banks of sediment basins, banks of sediment traps, and temporary road banks. These areas would otherwise lay bare for long periods of time before they are worked or stabilized. Temporary seeding is placed on disturbed areas that are to remain in an interim state for more than 60 days, but less than one year.

Temporary seeding must be done within seven days after initial excavation if the seed is going to be dormant or untouched.  The seed selection for temporary seeding is based on geographical location, soil type and the season of the year in which the planting is to be done.
