Evergreen Landcare has over 40 years experience in hydroseeding and erosion control.
We are innovative and long-established industry leaders in environmentally sensitive operations in New Zealand.
The original pioneer of hydraulic application of grass mulches in New Zealand, Evergreen has introduced many ‘firsts’ into the land care industry - new hydroseeding and erosion control products specifically adapted to New Zealand conditions.
Evergreen Landcare’s Hydrosoil, Bioblanket, Siltstop, DustGone and Dustbond are just some of the latest technology products to be released into New Zealand. Evergreen Landcare’s success in erosion control is directly attributable to the skill, knowledge and experience of its staff.
Our Core Values
Evergreen Landcare designed, built and introduced hydroseeding into New Zealand in 1969. Since then the units have been redesigned, modified numerous times to suit New Zealand conditions and job size. Units carry a number of hoses and nozzle types to reach inaccessible sites.
Kanga bobcats with 4 in 1 buckets, excavators and tip trucks make up the core of our landscape equipment. We also have the small tractors with level bars, rotary hoes etc to cultivate and level sites. This enables us to landscape small residential house sites right through to larger commercial sites.
Tractors and attachments
From 115hp down to 40hp to suit varying sites and conditions with landscape drills, roller drill, power harrow with precision computerised seed and fertiliser applicator, Rotodairon stone burier, mowers, maxitills, harrows and rotary hoes.
We have large truck and trailer units with specially built hydraulic ramps. This makes our equipment mobile and efficient between sites.
4WD Tractor or Tracked 4WD tractor mounted so the driver is comfortable and safe within an air conditioned cab. Fertiliser and seed can be applied with the straw.
From large tractor mounted, front deck self propelled, to quad bike mower. This enables us to mow subdivisions, road sides, lifestyle blocks to regular commercial maintenance.
All vehicles carry a first aid kit and fire extinguisher.

Evergreen Landcare operates a comprehensive health & safety management system that is consistent with ACC guidelines and the AS/NZS 4801:2001 Occupational Heath and Safety Management Systems Standard.
We have set, clear management expectations and objectives to protect staff, supervisors and the public from potential risk.
Generic hazards are identified and recorded at a company-wide level. Site specific hazards are assessed by crews prior to starting work at each site.
Hazards are eliminated where this is practicable. Residual hazards are managed through isolation or minimization strategies.
Accident and Incident Reporting and Investigation
An accident register is maintained and all accidents and near hits are investigated.
Rehabilitation and Safe Return to Work
Where possible, staff will be offered alternative duties upon their return to work after injury or illness.
Procedures are in place for dealing with foreseeable emergency situations.
Induction Training and Provision of Personal Protective Equipment
All personnel new to a position, whether externally recruited or internally transferred, must be fully trained in the correct procedures and use of the personal protective equipment provided. All fire extinguishers are certified annually. First Aid kits are restocked every six months.
Employee Involvement in Health and Safety
We hold regular safety meetings with all staff as well as weekly tool box safety meetings.
Staff are assessed annually for hearing function.
Review and Systems Monitoring
Management review the functioning and appropriateness of this health and safety system annually.
Evergreen Landcare’s health & safety system provides a framework whereby management can be confident that all practicable steps are being taken to avoid harm being caused to its employees. Therefore, they are also meeting the requirements of health & safety in the Employment Act 1992 and its amendments.
Evergreen Landcare has been sub-contracted by Fulton Hogan on the East Taupo Arterial Project since the initial stages of earthworks. During this time they have provided straw mulching, hydroseeding and grassing services as well as final formation, grooming, turf establishment and mowing on roadside swale drains.
The company’s range of specialist hydroseeding products such as Hydrosoil®, Siltstop® and Bioblanket® were used successfully at various sites on the East Taupo Arterial Project.
I have found Evergreen Landcare to be very responsive when required to carry out essential sediment control work at short notice. Their staff are experienced, well trained and friendly. They have operated in a safe and professional manner while on site.
I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Evergreen Landcare to other managers of large scale earthworks and highway construction projects.
