Towards the end of the project, the client requested additional surface stabilisation work prior to hydroseeding (hydraulic mulch seeding) to prevent slumping, ponding and run off of surface cover. This involved installing an Erosaweb system, which was then filled with stone chippings and covered with top soil then raked by hand until level. The client was concerned there would be a risk if the hydroseeding was done directly onto the soil it may wash out and therefore contaminate the moat. It was agreed Hessian Matting would be placed over the hydroseeded areas of the embankment which would prevent any wash out and stabilised the embankment surface. The hessian matting will protect the hydroseeding from wildlife especially birds, and also any adverse weather conditions.
This project was carried out very successfully by the team, who managed ever present challenges from weather, to public safety and delivered the project in a reduced timeframe to the original project. EDS feel privileged to be able to provide a service for our local beloved historical site, and therefore helping preserve it for generations to come.
