Hydraulic seeding uses mulch and tackifier mixed with grass seeds and is applied to areas that are not suitable for conventional seeding.
Hydro mulch is made from wood chips with a temporary green dye added to aid application and improve appearance. Mulch is a totally natural product which forms a blanket over soil and has a high water retention for rapid germination.
Recent projects include railway, road and river embankments.
Gabion Baskets are rectangular mesh baskets that we provide in a range of sizes from 0.5m² upto 2m².
The wire mesh varies in diameter from 2mm to 8mm and is either welded or woven, galvanised or plastic coated, depending on application.
Baskets come in flat pack form and are assembled on site. They can be used in a range of applications from small domestic projects to large industrial schemes.
The infill to the baskets is usually locally sourced stone ranging from 200mm - 100mm. Hand facing ensures that the wall has a good cosmetic appearance.
J.R. Cookson required 700mm high, welded mesh gabion baskets in this wall which holds up a road around a new housing development. Locally sourced gritstone was used as a facing material.
Client: J.R. Cookson, Huddersfield.
Plastic coated woven baskets were the most suitable solution for Ford Motors, Halewood, who needed to retain an earth embankment and create extra car parking space. The wall was faced with locally sourced granite stone.
