Hydro Seeding

Erosion Control in the UK has in the past been solved by using traditional coir blankets, netting or other turf reinforcement blankets. JSA has become a Certified Installer for Profile Products, which allows us to install leading edge "Hydraulically Applied" erosion control systems.

Hydraulic seeding and mulching techniques have come a long way since the introduction of the first hydraulic seeding equipment in 1953. Over the past 50 years, hydraulic seeding/ planting equipment, hydraulic mulches and performance enhancing additives have shown continuaous evolution and improvement, resulting in equipment and materials that offer enhanced performance and greater productivity over traditional methods of controlling erosion and establishing vegetation.

Unlike mats, hydraulically applied erosion control systems are sprayed on and therefore genuinely follow the contours of the ground, with no bridging or potential for washout below the matting. Conventional coir blankets and jute netting can allow water to seep through and gradually cause washout. These spray-on systems actually lock the soil particles down using soil binders and biodegradeable fibres to create a seamless blanket of protection. Hydraulically applied erosion control systems have been proven to reduce soil loss by 96% compared to traditional erosion control mats.

These products are applied at thicknesses ranging from 2mm to 5mm depending on the severity of slope and soil conditions. In basic hydroseeding mulch is used simply as a carrier to transport seed. However, in hydraulic erosion control it is the mulch itself which initially holds the key protection properties during the establishment of the seed.

JSA also specializes cutting-edge combination systems which utilizes the strength and durability of turf reinforcement matting (TRM) in conjunction with hydraulically applied erosion control techniques. See Green Armour System below.

Setting the bar even higher

Better Erosion Control—Flexterra® HP-FGM™ immediately bonds to the soil
surface. Its flexible yet stable matrix retains > 99% of soil, vastly reducing turbidity of runoff for up to 18 months.

Greater Seed Germination and Growth—High Performance matrix outperforms
traditional Flexterra FGM with 600% better initial germination and 250% increased
biomass due to a combination of optimized water and nutrient retention.

Safer for the Environment—Unlike rolled erosion control blankets,
Flexterra HP-FGM has no nets or threads to endanger wildlife. It uses 100%
biodegradable crimped interlocking fibers and 100% recycled and phyto-sanitized
wood fibers. Flexterra HP-FGM is 100% safe for aquatic and terrestrial life forms.

Earth-Friendly and Sustainable Results—Flexterra HP-FGM is a result of Profile’s
Green Design Engineering™, creating cost-effective and environmentally superior
solutions through the design, manufacture and application of sustainable erosion.
