Hydro-mulching is the hydraulic application of seed, mulch, fertiliser, tackifier/binder and water to form a slurry. These ingredients are combined and mixed in one of our hydromulching units and applied via a cannon or hose.
Hydro-mulching is widely used in the revegetation of disturbed areas especially on slopes where there is a significant risk of erosion occurring during the period of initial plant establishment.
There are many different application rates and materials that can be used to provide the outcome required. Please see our products for more information.
- Protecting the soil surface from erosion and provides dust suppression which provides many environmental benefits.
- Allows better water penetration into the soil and ongoing moisture retention allowing for better vegetation establishment.
- Addition of organic matter to the soil as the hydro-mulch breaks down
Hydro-seeding is a similar process to that of Hydromulching without the mulch being included in the mix.
This is a great lower cost alternative to hydromulching for quickly repairing disturbed areas or where a work area has been exposed/ stockpiles that will not be attended to immediately during the project.
Professional Grass Seeding.
Direct or drill seeding
Drill seeding is a process completed with a tractor and a drill seeding attachment. The furrow firstly opens the ground, the drill then places the seed in the soil at a certain depth, the soil is then raked over the seed and lightly compacted to ensure seed is properly embedded into the soil. The depth of the seed can be regulated as well as the rate of application.
Drill seeding is advantageous on larger flatter areas being a very cost-effective solution and watering is not required as nature will take care of this in due time.
The application can be used on many seed types including pasture and native crops. This process provides one of the best outcomes due to the nature of application and areas are usually less prone to erosion.
Broadcast seeding is a process completed with a tractor and a seeding attachment. The furrow firstly opens the ground, the seed usually mixed with sand is spread over the soil, the soil is then raked over the seed and lightly compacted to ensure seed is properly embedded into the soil.
This method is advantageous in larger flatter areas being a very cost-effective solution and watering is not required as nature will take care of this in due time

Turf is often thought of as a nice place for the kids to play outside. It is actually one of the fastest ways of providing dust suppression and erosion control. Turf is great for overland flow paths and drains and provides an instant solution it can be pinned have matting/mesh applied under/over making it a strong and durable erosion control solution.
We also provide and install turf for sporting fields and parks. We have a large variety of species to meet our clients’ needs.

WE CAN ORGANISE SOIL TEST FOR YOU
We trust that soil is the foundation for achievement of any revegetation venture, so our projects are constantly in view of an intensive comprehension of the physical, compound and organic attributes found on site. Results furnish us with important data to figure out what modifications should be made to guarantee a positive developing condition. With access to more than 100 different ameliorants, we can enhance the properties of the soil's physical and microbiological condition easily. Chat with our specialists to see if your project meets all requirements for our complimentary program.
