The design of Toyo-Mulching
System combines the concept of geo-synthetic, bioengineering and
horticulture. The selection of geo-synthetic mat is to secure planting
medium on the steep slopes and prevent the medium from being washed
out in rainstorm. The natural fiber soil named Soil-Factor can effectively
retain moisture and provide nutrients to enhance roots development
which could also improve the bioengineering strength of fiber soil.
The selection of suitable plant can provide low maintenance and
full coverage vegetation throughout the year. Besides, the healthy
vegetation cover can minimize the sunlight evaporation of the planting
medium such that the maintenance cost can be minimized.
In recent years, Toyo was awarded
many projects which areas covered the slopes of the highways, residential
developments, water catchment slopes. Amongst those completed projects,
the slopes are steep in gradient, the working spaces for the storage
of heavy machinery are limited and the access roads are narrow.
It is foreseeable that the maintenance is difficult to be carried
out in future. Nevertheless, the work process of the Toyo-Mulching
System is simple, the materials are difficult to be washed out,
and the full establishment of the selected plant species is the
criteria for the selection of vegetation system from the client.
Hence the Toyo-Mulching System is widely adopted along the slopes
of different Government departments.
