Hydromulch and Hydroseeding explained:
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 germination 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 professional hydroseeding machines are manufactured by Easy Lawn in the U.S.A. and range from 300 to 3300 gallon capacities. Our jet agitation (Turfmaster and Landscaper Series) Hydroseeding units have poly tanks and Robin engines and the mechanical Hydroseeding units (Contractor Series) feature stainless steel tanks and mulch grinders with John Deere engines.
