Evergreen Landcare has been involved in this large roading project in conjunction with Stringfellows Civil Engineering Contractors which is located on SH 1 at Ohingaiti approx 25km south of Taihape.
The work includes realigning 4.5km of road near the township of Ohingaiti. Our work consisted of large amounts of hydroseeding and straw mulching.
The hydroseeding consisted of large areas of cut and fill batters once completed using our specialist Evergreen batter mix. The road side verges/shoulders were also hydroseeded using our specialist road shoulder mix. There has been a successful strike throughout the project and we feel that we have achieved the desired result for our client.
The straw mulching consisted of covering subsequent areas in hay to reduce the effects of sediment run-off in order to acheive environmental compliance throughout the project. Areas that were covered in hay were usually grassed or hydroseeded beforehand and then the hay was usually tacked in place using a specialist tackifier to hold the hay as the wind funneled down through the huge cut batters.
