Environmental Hydroseeding was founded in March of 1998 in Cottonwood, CA. My name is Randy Phelps and I moved to the North State from Monterey County in May of 1981. I started the business on a shoestring budget out of necessity as many of us in the Redding area well know, making a living here isn't so easy. Having worn a few different hats in the name of survival, the one that really served us well is metal fabrication. I decided in 1990 that I had to make my first hydro seeder as good, new ones were $20,000! After a relatively decent first year, I decided to build a bigger one that I mounted on a freightliner truck, which is still in use today and is used primarily on large erosion control projects. After several years of strong growth, then began the Great Recession. Things definitely slowed dramatically at that point, but to add insult to injury, along came the drought! I thought at that point I could sit by and let other forces dictate our future or make a change. I decided in 2011, which I was betting the country had to be at the bottom of the recession, that it was a good time to build a Landscape Bark Blower. Well, three years later it became the only one north of Sacramento. Here we are in the beginning of 2017, starting our 20th year as a licensed, bonded, insured and LOCAL landscape contractor.
