HYDRO-MULCHING

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 

uses.

Great candidates for hydro-mulching

Instant Green Truck

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.

Hydro-mulching

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
