What we do best

Commercial Hydroseeding

There are many ways to plant a field or commercial property. Hydroseeding uses a slurry which is applied to the area. This slurry contains grass seeds, mulch and water. Sometimes, it also includes fertilizer, biostimulants and green-tinted color.

It’s a smart combination because the fertilizer stimulates growth and the mulch bonds the seeds with the soil. The mulch also protects the seeds from the elements like wind, too much sun, and finally adds nutrients to the grass by decomposing.

In the United States, the idea of hydroseeding was first developed in the 1950s. Businesses and anyone who wanted to transform a lawn from dirt to grass were attracted by the ease of hydroseed application.

  • Hydroseeding can be done quickly.

  • Hydroseeding can be economically done.

Silt Fence

Silt fencing, also sometimes misunderstood as “filter fence”, is a temporary sediment control device that protects water quality in nearby streams, rivers, lakes, and seas from stormwater runoff. Because of their simplicity and low cost, silt fences are popular on construction sites across North America. They are effective in controlling sediment, but can have limited effectiveness due to poor installation, improper placement and/or poor maintenance.

Silt Fence is a partially buried fabric supported by posts to control sediment from small disturbed places. It’s best for low-flow areas. Proper placement and installation is critical to their success. The silt fencing is temporary and will catch any sediment that may have moved during construction.

Erosion Control

Erosion control blankets, which are typically made from a selected material, are designed to slow down water’s movement across the surface. The chosen material is often one with many ridges and obstructions that allow water to slow down. There are many types of erosion control blankets. Some are synthetic, others are natural. These blankets are made from straw, aspen, coconut, or jute fibers, as well as polypropylene (plastic). These blankets come in many sizes. The most common ones measure between 80 and 100 square yards. These are usually rolled up and then cut into widths of 3-8 feet.

Hay Blowing

Straw blowing can be used to control large areas, such as roadsides, highways and fields. Straw blowing refers to the act of spreading straw on newly seeded areas. Straw acts as an insulation; straw cover insulates the newly seeded areas and keeps them warm when temperatures drop. Straw cover acts as an insulation material in the heat of summer to prevent soil moisture from being leaked out by high temperatures.
