Erosion Solutions International Pty Ltd (ESI) is a member of the Jimboomba Turf Group and was established in 1993 when the management of Jimboomba Turf Group recognised the need for an organisation to provide cost effective green solutions to erosion and soil loss. ESI is a market leader in development of reinforced turf products, such as the revolutionary STAYturf. The company also offers a complete range of associated products and services.
ESI has carried out several major rehabilitation projects in areas where construction, mining, or erosion have necessitated rehabilitation and the restoration of vegetation. ESI has a range of cost effective green solutions.
Products & Services
STAYturf is a mature reinforced turf product available in a variety of grass types and produced in rolls up to 4 metres in width.
STAYturf is able to withstand severe erosion forces and allows for the use of environmentally friendly grass in place of hard armour such as rock and concrete.
A specially blended mixture of mulch, seed, fertiliser, binders, and water that can be sprayed onto bare ground including steep batters to establish permanent vegetation. Mixtures and application rates are varied to suit each individual site. Mixtures can include grasses or native trees and shrubs.
Using the same machinery as used for hydromulching, a mixture of water, seed, fertiliser, and binders (no mulch) is sprayed onto a seedbed. This process is usually followed with the application of mulch.
Including scarification, soil amendments and seed mixes for all situations. Tractor mounted equipment is used to prepare the seedbed before the seed and fertiliser is spread. ESI can also provide the additional service of stick raking and rolling of the area to be seeded.
ESI has developed a unique method of spreading timber mulch, which has been produced as a result of tub grinding after tree clearing. This process allows for reuse of the wood mulch on site. It can not only save money by not having to re-handle the mulch, but also reduces soil erosion and dust on site.
Bulk spreading of organic mulches and bio fertilisers to assist in erosion control and the establishment of vegetation. ESI has the machinery and the expertise to spread and incorporate all types of soil amendments. Lime, Gypsum, Organic fertilisers and trace elements can be applied and incorporated using our unique range of equipment.
