Evergreen Landcare can offer the complete package when it comes to hydro seeding. We have a range of hydro
seeding applications that can be tailored to suit each individual site. We have specialist seed mixes to suit each site
and can design a bespoke mix to suit the clients’ needs.

Evergreen Landcare has successfully used hydro seeding as a method of re-vegetation on the following types of sites for the past 40 years:

  • Major Land Development projects
  • New Roads and Highways
  • Mines, Landfills and Quarries
  • Forestry roads and sites
  • Slips and steep slopes
  • Subdivisions
  • Residential Lawns

Hydro Seeding

Evergreen Landcare has HydroSeeding solutions that are specifically designed for New Zealand conditions. Each HydroSeeding application is customised to the requirements of the specific environment, used as a sediment control and to give a lush and healthy lawn finish.

HYDROSEEDING is the application of a slurry with ingredients blended specifically for each site. The slurry contains either recycled paper or wood mulch, grass seed, fertiliser and extra wood fibre to . This slurry then dries to a protective blanket. As well as preventing the soil surface from drying out this blanket also protects it from the effects of wind and moderate rainfall. The layer of pulp holds the grass seed in place until it germinates. 

We Hydroseed with quality seed blends & high analysis slow-release NPK fertilisers.

An even coverage of grass over the whole area can therefore be achieved because seed is not transported by wind or over ground water flows.

We have the fleet and resource to tackle any size project across all terrain elements.

Benefits

  • Steep slopes can be treated
  • Immediate soil surface protection
  • Vigorous growth even on low fertility
    substrates
  • Fibrous root systems bind the soil
    surface and resist erosion
  • Dust suppression effect
  • Enhanced moisture retention
  • Minimal or no seed bed preparation
    required
  • Soil surface temperature fluctuations moderated

Hydro Soil

Evergreen Landcare has HydroSeeding solutions that are specifically designed for New Zealand conditions. Each HydroSeeding application is customised to the requirements of the specific environment, used as a sediment control and to give a lush and healthy lawn finish.

The slurry blended for each site contains either recycled paper or wood mulch, grass seed, fertiliser and extra wood fibre. It differs from standard hydro seeding in that it contains organic humus material and an emulsified tackifier. The product is dark brown in colour and bonds readily with whatever substrate it is applied to.

When HYDROSOIL is used in conjunction with straw mulching, soil development is enhanced even further. Higher average soil surface moisture levels are maintained. This encourages the development of soil-building organisms such as decay fungi, bacteria and ultimately detritus-feeding insects.

BioBlanket

BIOBLANKET is a bonded fibre matrix designed by Evergreen Landcare using materials made in New Zealand for New Zealand conditions.

The product is designed for use on difficult sites that need greater surface protection than that offered by conventional hydroseeding.

We have developed this product using a blend of elongated wood fibres bound together with non-toxic  adhesives to create a continuous three-dimensional erosion control blanket. 

Bioblanket has as textured surface, reducing precipitation run-off velocity and capturing water to maintain even soil moisture content. The matrix also forms a porous mat that allows moisture to pass through gradually. The blanket slowly degrades as vegetation is established.

Slip zones that are likely to have concentrated run-off during the establishment period, fretting soils in cut batters, soft or sandy embankments, water table restoration and out of growing season protection are all examples of when Bioblanket can provide additional protection while vegetation is being established.

HydroSkin

Utilising advances in Polymer Science HydroSkin is a unique emulsion that is diluted at ultra-low concentrations in water and sprayed onto exposed areas to create a flexible veneer (skin/crust) which totally binds up all fines in `non trafficked’ areas to eliminate dust and bind soil particles.

Suitable for all forms of exposed stockpiles ground, sand, minerals and tailings it eliminates dust, RT5 has been used by Evergreen Landcare in conjunction with seeding to help with regenerating slip damage and earthwork sites.

Benefits

  • Emulsion of `microscopic superabsorbent polymers’
  • Heavy viscous polymers to bind fine dust particles
    100% environmentally safe
  • Withstands rain events and can be applied with marking dye for area identification
  • Cost effective
  • Zero harm to machinery

HydroStraw Mulch

HydroStraw Mulch is a new product developed by Evergreen Landcare. It is a cost-effective solution to stabilise and vegetate areas that difficult to access or where traditional straw mulch using a straw blower is not practical. Finely chopped straw can be added to the hydro mulch mix along with tackifiers, mulches, seed and fertilisers to provide the one stop shop mix to achieve the desired result.

Finely chopped straw can be added to the hydro mulch mix along with tackifiers, mulches, seed and fertilisers to provide the one stop shop mix to achieve the desired result.

HydroStraw Mulch can be used to stablise areas prone to water run off, erosion, and slipping, to provide stabilisation and vegetation establishment.

HydroStraw Mulch is the ideal solution for swale drain, around culvert and berm areas.

ProGanics Biotic Soil Media (BSM)

ProGanics Biotic Soil Media (BSM) is a product developed by PGG Turf and is designed as an alternative to applying topsoil to slopes. Evergreen Landcare have the hydro mulchers capable of applying this product cost effectively as per the specified amount required. We work closely with PGG to add the required ameliorants to soil needs to ensure the best result.

Soils and substrates associated with denuded sites from construction, mining, energy development and other land disturbing activities are inherently lacking in organic matter, nutrients and biological activity essential to sustainable vegetative establishment.

Ideally these sites would be covered with several inches (centimeters) of rich fertile topsoil to help develop a reasonable growing medium. However, there is simply not enough suitable or reasonably priced topsoil to ameliorate inhospitable conditions on every site.

Patent-pending ProGanics™ Biotic Soil Media™ (BSM™) has been designed as a topsoil alternative that accelerates the development of depleted soils/substrates with low organic matter, low nutrient levels and limited biological activity.

ProGanics is not a direct replacement for expensive topsoil, but provides an abundant source of organic matter and soil building
components to quickly modify soil chemistry, initiate growth establishment and buildup of the uppermost “O” and “A” soil horizons.

Benefits

  • ProGanics saves time and money where the cost of topsoil is prohibitive
  • ProGanics can be used on challenging sites with difficult access and on steep slopes where topsoil placement is impractical
  • ProGanics is an excellent option when soils are too wet or frozen to dig, transport and spread
  • Quick and easy loading
  • Engineered to shoot smoothly for optimum performance
  • Applying ProMatrix™ EFM™ or Flexterra® HP-FGM™ over ProGanics will provide near perfect erosion control

Flexterra

Flexterra is a product developed by PGG Turf and is designed to provide the ultimate stabilisation blanket on steep slopes, high water risk areas, and areas prone to erosion. 

As with the ProGanics product, Evergreen Landcare have the hydro mulchers capable of applying this product cost effectively as per the specified amount required and work closely with PGG to add the required ameliorants to soil needs to ensure the best result. 

Superior erosion control across Profile’s spectrum of products ensures reliable, sustainable solutions for slopes, channels, shorelines, water management projects, pipeline restorations, waste and fly ash containment sites, fine turf areas and other environmentally sensitive sites.

Flexterra HP-FGM Delivers:

  • The highest germination and growth establishment of any
    rolled or other hydraulically applied erosion control product available
  • Greater than 99% erosion control effectiveness immediately upon application
  • 100% biodegradable
  • Non-toxic and safe for even the most sensitive environments

Patented Technologies and Greener Components Deliver Unmatched Performance
Flexterra HP-FGM combines both chemical and mechanical bonding techniques to lock the engineered medium in place and promote accelerated germination with minimal soil loss. Greener from the inside out, here’s what makes it work so well: 

  • Revolutionary patented Micro-Pore particles optimize water and nutrient retention
  • 100% recycled, virgin Thermally Refined® wood fibers produce the highest yield and coverage per unit weight, and are phyto-sanitized, eliminating weed seeds and pathogens
  • 100% non-toxic biopolymers and water absorbents enhance erosion control
    resistance and growth establishment
  • 100% biodegradable interlocking fibers increase mechanical bonding of the matrix to provide immediate performance upon installation
