The dense vegetation cover of PRATI ARMATI ® protects the slopes against atmospheric agents.
HILLSIDE WATERPROOFING PRATI ARMATI® In case of heavy rain, water will flow over it avoiding soil absorption.

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.

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

Some characteristics of herbaceous species

  • perennial herbaceous species;
  • sturdy;
  • pionieer;
  • forage plants;
  • Non-GM;
  • Non-invasive;
  • withstands long lasting flooding;
  • remarkable capability to sprout after  a blaze
  • high growing speed also in extreme pedological and climatic conditions
  • root characteristics:

−        high growing speed;

−        high depth and density;

−        thin and homogeneous roots;

−        roots with high average tensile strength, up to 205 MPa.

What PRATI ARMATI® can do

 

  • stop erosion and desertification. The seeds  grow on every sterile lithotype  (compact clay, altered or fractured rocks,  soils polluted by hydrocarbons  and heavy metals, even in concentrations 10 times above the legally permitted limits, lime added soils up to 5% in weight) without topsoil, plastic and natural materials (geo-grids, geotextile meshes, natural fibre nets, mulch, bonded wood-fibre matrices, and so on);
  • if the above materials are already on-site, they can hide them, increasing their performances and landscape benefits;
  • mitigate the environmental impact of conventional civil works;

mutual and synergic protection of conventional civil infrastructure, reducing maintenance works;

  • accelerate the re-naturalization process;
  • subtracts up to 400% more CO2 than traditional plants, according to Kyoto Protocol;
  • increase soil shear resistance and safety factor;
  • protect and waterproof the slope  in case of heavy rainfall event;
  • protect from fractures and rifting;
  • reduce soil saturation;
  • thrive even in soils polluted with high levels of heavy metals: Lead, chrome, zinc, nickel, copper, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, cobalt, antimony, selenium, and so on;
  • isolate polluting soils. Prevents the dispersion of polluting dusts via water and wind (transportation in suspension, via infiltration and wind-borne deflation).
  • change a fragile ground in a plastic “soil-roots” system.
