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
Hydromulch specialises in the evaluation, design
and implementation of the restoration of vegetation and using vegetative techniques on sensitive

• 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
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.
