or Hydraulic Seeding is a mechanised process that can be used for establishing vegetation over large areas. The hydroseeding process involves the use of highly specialised hydraulic seeding equipment with a built-in agitation system and a specialised centrifugal pump for handling varying viscous slurry formulations. Seeds, fertilisers, organics, ameliorants, additives and mulch are mixed together with water and hydraulically pumped over selected areas. The speed of this application enables an exceptionally high coverage rate to take place.

Hydromulch specialises in the evaluation, design and implementation of the restoration of vegetation and using vegetative techniques on sensitive environmental areas, civil construction sites and mining operations within Africa, The Middle East, The West Indies and all islands off the coast of Africa.

Hydromulch, over the years, has been involved in the design and implementation of many roadrevegetation projects in various vegetation zones. These include fynbos and protea revegetation.

Hydromulch, through the years, has revegetated numerous mine and mine closure sites including Rock dumps, Tailings dams, Embankments of slimes dams and open cast strip mines for Gold, Platinum, Chrome, Copper, Titanium and coal mines. Some of these projects are long term, in excess of three years, and specifications are developed and tailored to the client’s criteria.

• Dust pollution control

Specific dust pollution control projects are undertaken by Hydromulch using various recognised products.

• Phytoremediation and pollution control


• Drafting of environmental & erosion control specifications

Hydromulch in association with recognised environmental professionals, offers comprehensive and detailed method specifications for environmental and erosion control rehabilitation projects.

• Soil analysis and interpretation

Hydromulch uses a scientific and site specific approach to establishing vegetation on a wide variety of sensitive areas. Soil samples are taken from the affected areas and sent through to a recognised soil laboratory for analysis. The analysis results are then sent through to an independent soil scientist for recommendation. Once the amelioration requirements have been established the data is compiled and used as an integral part of a rehabilitation specification.

The System is low cost and efficient system for soil and water conservation, , pollution control, waste water treatment, mitigation and prevention of storm damage and many other applications. Hydromulch has a distinguished record with from Cincinnati, OHIO, USA; is proud to be its “dealer sales representative” in AFRICA and acts as its global erosion control consultants worldwide representing FINN CORPORATION.
