SOIL EROSION, HOW TO STOP IT ?

What are  PRATI ARMATI®

Soil erosion how to stop it: this is a guaranteed full service, based on seeds of herbaceous perennial deep rooting plants capable to grow on almost any lithotype and climate, contrasting EROSION even on most barren ground types, re-naturalizing slopes, favouring biodiversity and accelerating ecological succession, protecting civil infrastructure and restoring polluted areas.

 

SOIL EROSION, HOW TO STOP IT ?

Where you can use PRATI ARMATI®

  • ridges and banks of motorways, roads and railways;
  • shores of lakes, rivers, torrents and channels;
  • seashores;
  • quarries, mines, landfill sites and contaminated lands.

The planting process

The PRATI ARMATI®  planting process depends on the specific site. It can be done seeding by hand, mechanical or hydraulic systems and depends on the local characteristics. The sowing process consists of spreading a mixture of water, fertilizers, natural glues and PRATI ARMATI®  technical seeds on the slope, using spreading pump mounted on a truck or  Caterpillartracked . In very large surfaces or inaccessible areas the hydroseeding can be done by helicopter using a specific hydraulic diffuser.

The PRATI ARMATI® planting process includes

The planting process includes the seeding (or hydroseeding) and fertilization, the taking roots guarantee,  the checking activity by our experts (eventually including maintenance works)  for a period of 36 months following the intervention, until it will be reached a plant coverage of at least 80% of the cultivable area (excluding rocky outcrops, boulders, stones, walls, asphalted surfaces, etc.), the guarantee that erosion will be stopped. The total price includes all materials (PRATI ARMATI® technical seeds, fertilizers, etc.), specialized workers and mechanical means,  the supervision of the operations by our experts.

Mixture used to sowing/hydroseeding

 

The PRATI ARMATI® mixture includes technical seeds, natural fertilizers, tackifying agents and soil conditioners. There is no a standard mixture of  PRATI ARMATI® technical seeds, it changes every time and is prepared according to the pedological characteristics, climate and local vegetation. Quantity and proportions of materials  needed depend on specific conditions of the site.

Technical characteristics of the seeds:

  • perennial herbaceous species, many of which are AUTOCHTHONOUS of the different areas of intervention, where you can find these locally;
  • species and cultivars of gramineae and leguminosae;
  • seeds are selected according to the pedological characteristics, climate and local vegetation;
  • if necessary, the technical mixture of seeds can be integrated with seeds of flowers, bushes and trees, favouring a re-naturalization process.
