After the burst of colour and abundant harvest that comes in spring and summer, it can be tempting to think the gardening year is over. Autumn, however, is nature’s time for planting. Not just plants and flowers, the combination of mild temperatures and increased moisture makes Autumn the perfect time for hydromulching!
What is Hydromulching?
Hydromulch is a mixture of water, seeds, fertiliser, tracking dye, mulch fibres and a binder that is sprayed onto soil. Hydroseeding and hydromulching are very different despite utilising the same application method. Hydroseeding merely spreads seed while hydromulch includes wood or straw mulch fibres that hold moisture for longer and support faster growth and erosion control.
What do we use?
Ecoscape Solutions uses a wide variety of hydromulching products from many suppliers. The high quality blends we use have many eco-friendly ingredients and can even include specially selected strains of bacteria and fungi with other essential nutrients, with the aim of not just encouraging fast growing vegetation, but also improving and restoring soil. The best quality hydromulch blends work at a microbe-level to add nutrients and carbon, rejuvenating soil that has been depleted and cultivating long term growth.
What are the Benefits?
- Eco-friendly: The hydromulching blends we use are non-toxic so won’t pollute waterways or other plants around the area. The major benefit of hydromulching is erosion control, which prevents dirty water runoff from your site. It is also developed to be weed, pest and pathogen free so doesn’t contain any surprise nasties that cause problems later on.
- Sustainable: High quality hydromulch contains built in nutrients and bacteria that work with nature to condition and regenerate soil. This cuts down on your work as frequent fertilising and care isn’t needed. The inclusion of mulch fibres means it needs significantly less water, making it a great solution for drought affected areas.
3. Easy Application: Ecoscape Solutions have the equipment to quickly and easily cover large and difficult to reach areas including steep slopes and rough, uneven surfaces. Hydromulch comes packaged as a bale with everything included, meaning your site will require less dust control and will be greener, sooner.
