Hydromulching Victoria

As the second most populated state of Australia, Victoria’s economy continues to grow each year. However, there are environmental problems that come along with these developments. Rapid urbanisation requires the clearing of lands to make way for infrastructures. With more barren lands, soil erosion and flooding take place more frequently.

Without corresponding efforts to mitigate these environmental issues, Victorian locals could suffer from calamities like landslides and dust storms.

Knowing the challenges that Victoria is facing, Erizon offers the most advanced technologies for revegetation and soil rehabilitation. Our hydromulching services give the best erosion control solutions. We treat damaged soils to retain more moisture and achieve sustainable vegetative growth.

Meeting the Need to Revegetate Victoria

Victoria’s economic growth and development cleared 66% of its native vegetation. Industrial advancements, urban expansion, and agricultural activities had been disturbing the fertile landscapes of the state. To a great degree, depletion occurs even in the natural vegetation that covers historical lands.

The alteration of the ecosystem to improve its productivity, however, causes a change in the soil’s hydrology. This modification exposes the ground to the harmful effects of arid conditions, strong winds, and heavy rainfall. Ultimately, soil erosion occurs.

When Victoria’s unpleasant climate meets these disturbed lands, the environmental encounter places the community at high risk for disasters and severe ecosystem damage.

It is a known fact that Victoria experiences a diverse climate.

When prolonged hot and dry seasons occur, these periods of extended drought result in the devastation of many farming communities. The high temperature accompanied by severely low humidity causes dust storms and bushfires to break out more frequently.

Circumstances like dust storms and bushfires produce parched soils, affecting salinity and the decline of soil structure quality. Erosion of different types occur in these kinds of soil conditions.

Tunnel erosion is just one example. When tunnel erosion occurs, channels and tunnels develop beneath the surface, disrupting the soil and significantly reducing its capability to hold water.

Also, when the rainy season finally arrives, it often comes with a price. Strong winds often meet with major rain storms or thunderstorms to produce a downspout of red and muddy rain. Since the soil is already too dry to absorb too much water in a short time, the rushing water easily erodes the topsoil.

Meanwhile, sheet erosion occurs when raindrops or flowing surface water removes the surface soil. Without the topsoil, plants cannot grow as much. In effect, it causes a compromise in sustainability.

Another type of erosion that can take place is stream bank erosion. In lands where there is no protective vegetation, streams of water cut deeper and wider channels. What results is an increase of sediments in the stream, and the turbidity becomes high enough to damage bridges and roads.

One simple solution is to maintain a vegetative cover for the soil. It could relieve Victoria from the devastating effects of soil erosion.

As part of its anti-erosion efforts, the Department of Sustainability and Development of Victoria has made a framework for action in the state’s native vegetation management.

The same institution also developed a set of guidelines for revegetation, aimed at rehabilitating formerly cleared areas. This set of policies requires landowners or landholders to meet these minimum standards. They need to plant a locally indigenous species and achieve 10-year plant density targets.

Although the state has already made significant progress in its action to enhance and protect natural vegetation, there is still a need to do more. Victoria loses an estimated amount of 2,500 hectares of land a year.

Thus, the locals need to increase their efforts for revegetation. There should be an implementation of more sustainable and long-term solutions to answer the issues that Victoria faces.

Here is where Erizon comes to help.

The Best Solution for Soil Stabilisation in Gold Coast

For over 25 years now, Erizon has been at work with local councils and communities to help address their soil erosion issues.

As with any of the previous cases we’ve handled, the most effective solution involves a comprehensive soil stabilisation procedure.

Our soil scientists will then conduct a soil analysis and outline a tailored solution based on the analysis results.

Depending on the project needs and soil properties of the target area, we may also utilise our high-performing drone technology when spreading the stabilising agents. These compounds may include fertilisers, soil probiotics, and other trace elements.

Overall, our goal has always been to improve the soil’s resilience and enhance its strength — whether the project involves roads, hardstands, or lay-down areas.

Thus, our final phase includes an advanced monitoring protocol. We make use of the latest scanning and imaging sensors to obtain an accurate report of the site conditions after rehabilitation.

Why Choose Erizon?

Erizon has consistently given exceptional revegetation and hydromulching solutions in Victoria, and all of Australia. Our excellent services have proven to be unmatched over the years.

Because we believe in the preservation of our ecosystem, we offer environment-friendly and cost-effective soil rehabilitation and erosion control solutions.

We always back our methods with scientific research. Our team of experts and experienced scientists develop techniques and applications that produce the best results. We make sure our solutions are free from weeds, pests, and pathogens. This move shows that Erizon desires to give the ultimate environment protection to the Victorian community.

Here at Erizon, the welfare of our clients gets the topmost priority. To achieve this, our highly efficient staff first conducts a pre-project site inspection to identify the conditions and requirements specific to the site. We then collect soil samples that we analyse in our laboratory to make sure we apply precise treatments and products.

To give tailor-made and practical solutions, we use the latest 3D drone technology to map out our client’s site. Then, once we choose the optimum plant species for the area, we thoroughly craft the best strategies to approach the problem.

Erizon utilises state-of-the-art equipment to ensure uniform product application. We also apply fertiliser and soil probiotics using our modern drone technology. Our extensive range of application methods guarantees safe and efficient treatment on vast areas of lands.

Since we believe in sustainability, we also do rehabilitation performance monitoring. Through this, we can assure our clients that we will meet the goals we have set in the beginning, and the project is going according to what we have planned.

Finally, Erizon’s primary goal is to provide a secure environment for Victorian residents. With cooperation, we can surely make this vision a reality.
