Hydromulching is a cost effective and environmentally responsible way to revegetate larger areas of land. Hydromulch is used for mine site revegetation, roadside rehabilitation, new housing estates and steep embankments requiring a vegetative cover to manage soil erosion.
Hydromulching consists of a blend of mulch which can vary from cheap paper mulch through to the more expensive wood fibre mulch blends. The mulch is then mixed with a Tackifier, which holds the mulch together and binds it to the soil when sprayed. Last but not least we then add the seed, fertiliser and colour dye (if desired). The seed and fertiliser blend is the most critical factor in ensuring a successful germination and long-term success of the Hydromulch. Envirostay, backed by our extensive knowledge of seed and fertiliser specifications will ensure we recommend the right seed blend for the time of year and the correct native seeds if required, for your region.
Hydromulching has many benefits for the environment. It will lock down loose soil particles susceptible to erosion by wind and low overland water flows. It also enriches the soil profile, which in turn will maintain healthy vegetation for years by creating a soil profile that encourages plant growth. All of our mulch products are completely natural and will breakdown over time therefore enhancing the soil health and stimulating microbial activity. This is very important especially in mine revegetation and deep cuttings beside roads and rail lines where the soil can be very low in key nutrients and organic matter.
Here at Envirostay we specialise in recommending the right mulch, seed and fertiliser blend for your application to ensure the greatest possible outcome for your projects. As part of Envirostay’s service, we can perform a soil analysis to determine what nutrients and soil amendments are required to ensure we avoid applying a fertiliser or soil conditioner that potentially could unbalance the soil profile. Envirostay is a commercial erosion and sediment control division of New Lawn Turf which services NSW and beyond. New Lawn Turf is an industry renowned turf grower in Australia and we combine our extensive knowledge of soil and plant nutrition into our hydromulching operations.
