Hydromulching – Bonded Fibre Matrix
Revegetating steep slopes and areas that are prone to high rainfall require a tailored approach to ensure revegetation success. Hydromulching with Bonded Fibre Matrix’s provides the necessary protection against erosion control, encourages growth and stabilises steep slopes.Read More

Designed around superior performance, Hydromulching BFM projects erosion control effectiveness, growth establishment and functional longevity in order to create a high-performing growth medium matrix over standard Hydromulching HGM.
Hydromulching BFM is a two-step application process. Essentially a heavy-duty growth medium BFM employs a combination of two passes over the surface area. The first step involves a combination of water, seed and amelioration being applied onto the surface to ensure effective seed-to-soil contact. The second step consists of spraying cellulosic mulch and proprietary binder and tackifier at a high application rate to ensure erosion effectiveness. BFMs viscous bonding agent dries to form a protective skin over the treated surface area, much like an erosion control blanket, that remains effective for 6 -12 months.
Hydromulching BFM has been designed to provide increased performance in comparison to standard hydromulching solutions when applied to steep batters, slopes, verges and ﬂat areas. This includes extended protection against erosion by providing complete soil surface cover and improved seed germination thus improving revegetation outcomes and a greater ability to suppress weeds.
BFMs conforms to the contours of the ground and dries to form a Bonded Fibre Matrix. Once dry, the matrix can be hydrated repeatedly and will hold soil and seed without washing away.
BFMs employ a combination of both hydroseeding and hydromulching processes, but applied at a much higher rate. This helps the growth medium to ensure sufficient germination of seedlings, a higher strike rate, greater moisture retention and longer-lasting erosion control.
