We are happy to see focus on soil erosion in Ontario. The non-profit Bruce Peninsula Biosphere Association will receive approximately $240,000 from the Ontario Trillium Foundation to support its efforts to tackle the problem of soil erosion on agricultural land. The BPBA says its ongoing work with farmers on the peninsula will improve water quality by preventing sediments from entering streams, while also benefiting farmland by keeping soil and nutrients on fields. “The obj
I bet this happens all the time. Humourous look at a guy trying to grow grass. "The first bag I bought was about 3 percent seeds, 4 percent fertilizer and 93 percent Protective Growth Shield Cover, aka shredded newspaper." "I bought another bag, also 100 percent guaranteed. It was sun / shade / high-traffic and so on; the bag might as well have said WORKS ON MARS." If that rings true for you, contact the professionals at JMB Equipment and see how easy and affordable it is to

As the term suggests, estate lot means LARGE lot and a lot of times we do projects for people who have recently built a beautiful home. Using hydroseeding is by far the easiest and least expensive method to change their lot from scrubland or hayfield into a lush, healthy lawn. The images you see in this post show how we did just that in fro
There is no better way to grow a lush, healthy lawn on a cottage lot than hydroseeding. Because the seeds grow in native soil the grass is robust and healthy. Check out these photos from a recent project on Bob's Lake.
As we stated in an earlier blog post, a major reason to choose hydroseeding over sod is the fact that sod is "transplanted" into soil that is not native. This can sometimes produce less than acceptable results if the sod doesn't "take." Hydroseeding, on the other hand, provides much more flexibility. The hydroseed mix can be tailored to suit a specific project. Engineers may choose to use a 100% wood mulch, cellulose mulch (recycled newspaper), straw mulch, or a Bonded Fibr
