Bark Mulch Installation

Fast and Efficient installation of premium bark mulch reduces labor and provides a uniform layer of mulch in large and small landscape beds. Production of 100+ yards/day minimizes impact of mulch installation in heavy use or traffic areas. Bark Mulch installation can also be used to stabilize slopes, construction sites excavations, and material piles to minimize job-site runoff.

Custom blends of bark mulch are available.

loam installation

Topdressing & Loam Installation

Using our pneumatic blower trucks we are able to blow-in loam and composted soils into areas that cannot be access by traditional earth moving equipment. This process is known as Terraseeding. 

Struggling lawns may need an application of compost to add organic materials and nutrients back into depleted soils. Our blower trucks gently apply a thin layer or compost over the lawn without the need for heavy equipment and re-grading. Existing turf continues to grow and benefits from the new organic nutrients in the compost. New seed germinates and establishes quickly. 

This service is great for thin lawns, sports field topdressing, hard to access material relocation with minimal disturbance to existing landscapes. 

Certified Playground Chips

Installation of Certified Playground Chips required at Public Schools, Municipal Parks and Play grounds benefit from blown-in installation by reducing impact of heavy equipment and labor required.

Pneumatic application results in a light and soft installation of chips in an around delicate playground structures without risk of damage.

Elevated Beaches & Leaching Systems

Lake front properties often lack easy access of equipment required to transport sand and soils. Our equipment can be used to efficiently transport sand for elevated beaches and beachfront refurbishment. We also have experience with installation of sand for remote leaching fields and utility trenches.

Green Roofs and Rooftop Material Transfer

Transfer of rooftop planting media, soils, and stone onto a rooftop by our specialized Finn 1208 blower truck reduces labor by directly installing the material into planting beds, planters and spreading stone aggregates evenly of rooftop. Compared to costs associated with utilizing a crane you will find pneumatic installation to be both safer and cost effective.

Commercial, Civil, and Marine Construction

Pneumatic material transfer can be used to install materials such as sand and stone into buildings for interior excavation backfill as well as targeted transfer of materials for civil construction for bridge, highway and roadway projects. Our equipment has been utilized from a marine barge to assist with material transfer onto islands and areas that heavy equipment cannot access.
