Instant Green provides instant stabilisation and revegetation using New Zealand-made products that
have been tested and proven under extreme weather conditions, steep faces, and slopes, to control
erosion and sediment, soil stabilisation, lawn establishment, subdivision sign off, and many other
Great candidates for hydro-mulching
Instant Green Hydro mulching for Instant Stabilisation is a rapid and effective method of stabilizing soil. A slurry containing wooden fiber, grass seed, fertilizer, and a polymer/glue is hydraulically applied to the site.
Once applied, the slurry quickly cures and forms a protective, permeable 'crust' within just 4 hours. This crust safeguards the site from erosion caused by rain and wind. During rainfall, the fiber absorbs and retains water, preventing runoff, sediment movement, and washouts. Its impressive water-holding capacity, able to retain 13.78 times its weight, promotes faster germination by providing a moisture-rich environment.
Furthermore, the use of a polymer in the slurry minimizes the risk of seed displacement due to wind or groundwater flows.
Benefits of Hydro-mulching over traditional mulching:
Hay Mulching / Straw
Instant Green Hydro-mulching
Easily blown around with or without tackifier - exposes surface to wind and rain erosion
Rogue, unspecified seeds found in hay/straw
Little ability to hold moisture
Often 2 applications when seed and fertiliser is required with the hay/straw on top. (3 applications if binder is used)
Council requirements are that you should not apply hay/straw in winds greater than 15kph
Little or no reduction of water run-off
When Hay/straw is blown around - often it creates a messy worksite
Can be fired approx. 15m from tractor
Binds with the surface, zero risk of soil being exposed - 100% stabilisation
Weed-free, no risk of non-spec/rogue species being present
1378% water holding capacity* - this means it can hold at least 13 times its weight in water!
Only one application with Seed, Fert and fibre applied all at once.
We can apply in winds of 30kph+ using a hose to provide an even application
Run-off is greatly reduced due to the water holding capacity of the fibre
No risk of any product being blown around, providing a tidy, professional worksite!
Can be fired approx. 100m+ from our turret on top of our truck
