When we started in the hydroseeding business, a lot of people we spoke to thought hydroseeding was only used for large commercial applications, probably because they had seen hydroseeding trucks along busy highways like 401 and 416. Today, as more and more people realize the benefits of hydroseeding, the process is fast becoming the standard for lawns of all sizes, recreational fields etc. Here is some information that explains the basics of hydroseeding: What is HуdrоSееdіng
Ever wonder what happens to a quarry after the limestone has been removed? Well wonder no more. Here are some images of the JMB Equipment crew returning a quarry to nature. If you are in Ottawa, Kingston, Gananoque, Cornwall, Brockville, Perth, Carleton Place, Kemptville or any community in that region and your community has a reclamation project in mind, contact the top guns at JMB Equipment and we will show you how hydroseeding is the best method to "make the earth green.
With spring just around the corner in eastern Ontario, many communities will be starting outdoor recreation activities like soccer and baseball. If that includes your community and your athletic field is in need of upgrading (or updating, or a makeover), you really should consider hydroseeding as a very effective and affordable alternative to grass seeding, or even sod. If you are in Ottawa, Kingston, Gananoque, Cornwall, Brockville, Perth, Carleton Place, Kemptville or any c

Here is a sample of what you will find in this article: "if we hope to grab a hold of runaway climate change and continue to live on a habitable planet...we must not overlook the grass." What??

Seed, ѕоd оr hуdrоѕееd?
1. Hаnd ѕееdіng rеԛuіrеѕ time, persistence, hаrd wоrk аnd, оftеn, rе-ѕееdіng. Hеаvу rain can wash аwау your seed; ѕun and drоught саn burn it оut; оr a flосk of birds can ѕtор by fоr lunсh.

Here is a post from UK. It is not really our cup of tea... meaning not lawns, but grazing grass. Growth regulators based on naturally occurring plant hormones, gibberellic acids such as SmartGrass could provide farmers with an early season growth, allowing lower feed costs, faster grazing rotations, and more silage cuts to be taken throughout the season. Interesting... here is the post: http://www.farminguk.com/News/Using-grass-growth-regulators-to-up-performance_38900.html
Here is a post about the do's and don'ts for the home landscaper. Although the methodology of landscaping may vary depending on the area you live in, there are some points here worth considering. One that caught our eye is "your neighbours have to live with your results." That made us take a look: http://journaltimes.com/lifestyles/home-and-garden/diggin-in-tips-for-the-home-landscaper/article_69246cb7-f13f-588e-8b4d-cf91f05e198a.html
This post caught our eye. When is obesity a good thing? When it applies to plants. The benefits of obese plants could be staggering. Higher crop yields with less fertilizer. Think about it... ever seen an obese orange or tomato? Well you might in future if scientists can tweak this process. Here's the scoop: http://edition.cnn.com/2016/03/03/tech/obese-plants/index.html
We haven't heard of this happening in eastern Ontario... yet. Thieves in California stole tried to steal this woman's lawn. She woke up to see her artificial lawn "rolled up like a carpet." Highly unlikely thieves could steal hydroseeding! Check it out: http://www.mantecabulletin.com/section/1/article/132857/
At JMB Equipment, we live and breathe hydroseeding. It is not a "part time gig", we were the first company in eastern Ontario to promote hydroseeding to residential customers. Before we started in business, hydroseeding was mostly used for large commercial projects. Here, on our new blog page, you will find industry news, anecdotes, information, new products... in short everything hydroseeding! Stop in often, you just never know what you will find. AND... if you have any
