The problem with the majority of hydromulches that are commonly used in Australia today, is that they are not heat treated, so they are susceptible to weeds and pests.
Many hydromulch, revegetation and erosion control products contain man made materials and fibres. These have not been tested in the field in Australian conditions, so we can’t know how they will break down over time, and impact our soil and delicate waterways.
Perhaps the most important aspect of soil rehabilitation, revegetation and erosion control, is to preserve and protect our environment. We are 100% confident that the products we use have been specifically designed to do just that. And we want to know that when we complete a job, we will not be called back because it has failed to yield the result our client has paid for.
Our hydromulch of choice is EnviroStraw. Together Growgrass™ and EnviroStraw have developed this product in response to the need for a heat-treated hydromulch for the unique Australian conditions, with these specific objectives:
Straw is widely regarded as the best erosion control fibre available. EnviroStraw is a heat-treated, straw-based hydromulch that is the ideal blend of cereal straw and a legume. EnviroStraw is unmatched in the erosion control industry within Australia, and these are the reasons why we choose to use it:
So why are these factors important?
Because at the end of the day, it allows us to achieve a better result for our clients. We can prepare the soil and apply the product with absolute confidence that vegetation will grow.
Typically, hydromulch is added at rates between 2-5 tonnes of mulch/hectare. In our experience, we have found that Hydromulching provides a better growth environment than hydroseeding.
