Hydromulch and Hydroseeding explained: Northland Photo 2

Hydromulch (also known as Hydraulic mulch) consists of small pieces of cellulose and wood fibres, which can be made completely from wood waste or recovered paper. In the process of hydroseeding, a mixture of water, seeds, and hydraulic mulch is sprayed over bare soil to quickly promote plant growth. Hydroseeding is commonly used to re-vegetate along medians, embankments and roadways. Hydraulic mulch stabilizes soil, prevents wind and water erosion and provides protection and warmth for seeds, helping them grow. Hydraulic mulch also controls weeds, reducing or eliminating the need for pesticides.

Hydroseeding is an excellent alternative to using sod and often a better choice. When comparing hydroseeding to instant turf, hydroseeding takes less time to apply, provides uniform growth and provides moisture. The hydroseeding mix or "slurry" holds the seed, fertiliser and soil in place during rain and repeated watering. This hydroseed mulch nurtures the growing seeds and holds them in place during showers and heavy rain to reduce the risk of a patchy lawn.

100% Quality Wood Fibre Mulch:
We use wood fibre mulch in the cool season with tack products that are ideal choices for winter Conwed Wood Fiber Mulchgermination and critical sites with up to 2:1 slopes. Thermally Refined™ fiber delivers up to 30% more yield than competitive products. Contains 100% of the highest quality wood fiber. Now with SlikShot for better yield, better shooting and better ground coverage. Thermally Refined wood fiber delivers up to 50% more water-holding capacity than atmospherically refined wood mulches. Absorbs water rapidly, forming a homogeneous slurry that ensures evenly distributed stands of grass. Proven by independent university testing to control erosion and grow healthier stands of grass than 100% paper fiber. Meets or exceeds all requirements for wood fiber mulch.

Rapid Lawn New Zealand provides hydroseeding, spray-on lawns, hydromulching, slope stabilisation, erosion control and grass seeding for domestic, commercial, golf courses, council work, and playing fields. We use a high-quality mix of mulch, fertiliser, seed and water. Organic additives are mixed together promoting rapid germination and moisture retention while binding the hydroseed "slurry" mix to the prepared soil.

Our Tank Systems:
Our tanks are also an important part of our system. We offer polyurethane lined steel, stainless steel, and polyethylene tanks. We strongly recommend our polyethylene tanks because they do not rust and corrode like steel tanks do. Our poly tanks are manufactured with a thicker wall than a standard poly ag tank which helps increase tank life. If you ever do have to replace a tank, it is simple because either of our tanks are removeable. Our competitors steel tank machines are welded together, so you cannot replace the tank. A steel tank must be rebuilt from the inside out which is quite an expensive process. Most steel tank machines have a coating on the inside to prevent corrosion. However, this coating wears off with the abrasive materials used in the hydroseeding mixture, so it has to be re-coated regularly.

Easy Care: Northland Photo 2
Once your new lawn has been hydroseeded, it's easy to manage. It just needs to be regularly watered, mowed and fed. The first 21 days are vitally important as the germinating seedlings cannot be allowed to dry out or they will die.

Lawn Care Tips:
Cut the lawn once a week for optimal health and appearance. Mow high — between 50mm and 70mm. Never be tempted to lower your mower, no matter how cool the weather sometimes get during July and August. Grass develops a balance between the leaves and root systems, a sudden change in this balance causes severe shock to the plant. However, if your lawn is in poor shape and does not look good, you can raise the mower slightly, such as half an inch. Keep the mower blades sharp.
