Hydromulching and Hydroseeding
Hydromulching and hydroseeding are quick and effective ways for generating new vegetation that can naturally stabilize the soil and prevent erosion and sediment loss. The sprayed on mixtures of wood fiber, water, tacifier and organic material cover the ground and bind to the soil, minimizing soil movement, trapping moisture, and creating an environment in which seeds can sprout and grow. Hydroseeding mixtures include seed and may also include fertilizer.
WildLands applies hydroseeding and hydromulching from the ground or the air, providing precision coverage for large areas, including remote sites with steep slopes or rugged terrain. We have a fleet of hydro trucks and equipment for ground applications and use both helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft for precision-guided aerial applications. We have devised highly effective combinations of fertilizers, soil builders, native seed, tackifiers, and organic materials to encourage fast seed establishment and improved stress tolerance.
Bonded Fiber Matrix
WildLands uses the latest hydraulically-applied products and techniques for erosion control including Bonded Fiber Matrix (BFM). Applied with a hydroseeder, the mixture of wood fiber, tackifier and bonding agents reduces soil loss and water runoff, providing an effective guard against erosion. In many cases, BFM outperforms biodegradable erosion control blankets. With its high-water-holding capacity and excellent adherence to the soil surface, a layer of BFM retains moisture and reduces under-rilling and tenting. By securing the seed and fertilizer until vegetation is established, BFM promotes plant growth. The applications can protect virtually any slope and soil type, including near-vertical surfaces. Furthermore, because BFM does not damage existing vegetation, it can be used on slopes with some existing vegetation.
