SPECIALISED CAPABILITIES & UNIQUE SERVICES
GrowGrass will grow grass just about anywhere: no matter the problem, we have a solution
NO TOPSOIL? NO PROBLEM ...
Our most specialised capability is to grow vegetation without top soil. Organic Growth Systems (OGS) can be implemented and left for 6 months to achieve 100% sediment loss control until the rains come and dormant seeds germinate. This addresses the problem of scarcity of water supply to remote areas.
EXTREME LANDSCAPE? NO PROBLEM ...
Growgrass™ specialises in extreme landscape hydromulching with a mixture of 4×4, 6×6 wheel drive and tracked Marooka hydromulchers to get into remote locations that other contractors can’t reach and apply hydromulching, sediment control applications specifically designed for each location.
NO WATER? NO PROBLEM ...
The cost to watering a project can sometimes be prohibitive on remote sites. Water can be difficult to access and in short supply. Our non-watering option has been tested and proven reliable. The method works by performing several passes of the hydromulching equipment. The EnviroStraw Hydromulch along with the Long term Binder EnviroBond are the keys to why this system works. EnviroStraw resists the UV sunlight and also keeps the substrate below it cooler. This environment ensures the seed remains viable. The other key ingredient to the process is the UV stable EnviroBond soil stabiliser and mulch binder. This proprietary-blended product locks the mulch down and binds the substrate below it for up to 12 months. Refer Case Studies: Tumbulgum, Snowy River National Park NSW, Santos LPNG, Toowoomba Range.
TROPICAL STORMS? NO PROBLEM ...
Very effective during the tropical rain season in tropical Queensland, Applied with the Hydromulch slurry ensuring a better bond of the mulch fibres and binding of the mulch and soil particles below. EnviroBond StormGuard forms a three dimensional matrix through the mulch and substrate below it effectively controlling water penetration. This significantly increases raindrop protection and overland flow rates. Refer study Landloch Envirostraw with included Envirobond soil stabiliser. Case Study: Tumbulgum.
EXTREME, UNSTABLE SLOPE? NO PROBLEM ...
This system is for Extreme slopes and very unstable surfaces not excluding swale drains where high overland flow rates can be experienced. The GeoBugger soil stabilising geosynthetic matting is applied over the hydromulched surface ensuring it has complete contact with the substrate below it. The GeoBugger matting is our preferred choice at it does not photo degrade. And with its unique design it can easily be Hydromulched through the matting if this was the preferred method of application. A combination of bonded fibre matrix hydromulch and Erosion control matting with three dimensional structure does the following:
• provides improved erosion control
• reduces seed loss through washout
• promotes plant growth
• supports the upper layer of soil and the applied hydromulch. Recommended for unstable batters from rock and shale or anywhere slips and falling debris could be a danger.
LOW-GRADE SOILS? NO PROBLEM ...
Our Organic Growth System has been developed to re-vegetate sites that have no or very low grade soils. The focus is on soil science ... rebuilding the soil through soil science. We utilise organic products that build carbon in the soil and promote soil biology. Successful projects include, Toowoomba Range, Snowy Mountains Highway ACT, Tumbulgum Tweed NSW. See Case Study Page.
Got a problem? No worries ... Jock's got your back. As you can see on this page, there's a solution for just about every troublesome situation.

EXTREME SLOPE? NO PROBLEM ...
This is an advanced technology that utilises a patent pending formula that provides a durable high-strength membrane. It is sprayed on ensuring erosion is stopped in its tracks. No slope is too challenging for Extreme Slope GeoSpray. Projects completed. Tumbulgum NSW, Snowy Mountain highway RoadTek ACT, Xstrata Railway batters, Tarmour NSW. See Case Study Page.
EXTREME SLOPE REVEGETATION? NO PROBLEM ...
Our system utilises high strength binder technology with added interlocking fibres enabling the Hydromulch to hold in place long term. This helps vegetation establish without the need for expensive watering programs. Projects completed. Tumbulgum NSW, Snowy Mountain Highway ACT. See Case Study Page.
