Profile Products produces purpose-driven products meet the specific needs of a range of industries, including sports fields, golf courses, mining, oil and gas reclamation, landfills, commercial/residential construction and DOT/highway projects. Profile® Products offers the industry’s broadest line of erosion and sediment control products, turf establishment products and complementary accessories to control erosion and accelerate seed germination. They also manufacture the industry’s best-selling inorganic soil amendments.
Establishing sustainable vegetation and receiving the earliest possible Notice of Termination (NOT) are the goals of every project. Profile’s 5 Fundamentals™ are the surest way to get you there. Integrating them into a process that entails proper planning and execution takes the guesswork out of crucial decisions.
1. Assessing and Creating Optimal Soil Conditions
Soil testing provides essential information to determine what adjustments, if any, need to be made to assure a more favorable growing environment for faster, more complete vegetative growth and sustainable establishment.
2. Picking the Right Plant Species
It is essential to select plant species that are adapted to project locations, site conditions, intended use, project seasonality and maintenance requirements.
3. Selecting the Correct Erosion Control Material
The right cover is necessary to protect both seed and soil, taking into account the erosion control product’s effectiveness, ability to facilitate growth and the functional longevity required for that protection.
4. Ensuring Proper Installation
Installing these products in accordance with the manufacturer’s mixing and application guidelines will maximize their performance to meet project requirements.
5. Follow-up Inspections and Maintenance Practices
Continually monitoring how projects are progressing is the best way to make sure all site requirements and compliance issues are being addressed. Maintenance may be required to mitigate unexpected challenges.
Healthy soil is the necessary infrastructure to support and nurture vegetation. Once vegetation is established, it then grows and flourishes through nutrient cycling—the movement and exchange of organic and inorganic matter back into the production of living matter. Once you understand your soil, you can work toward building the proper soil composition and profile to promote nutrient cycling.
ProMatrix™ Engineered Fiber Matrix™ (EFM™) delivers superior erosion control and vegetative establishment you’ve come to expect from EcoSolutions. It’s available at a competitive price to give you an edge when bidding on jobs requiring Bonded Fiber Matrix (BFM)/Stabilized Mulch Matrix (SMM) hydraulic mulch products. ProMatrix EFM will change your world.
ProMatrix Engineered Fiber Matrix Technology Delivers:
• Highest-loading formulation with BFM performance
• Meets or exceeds all industry standards for BFM/SMM products
• Functional longevity for up to 12 months
• Quick germination and rapid vegetative establishment
• Environmentally safe
Flexterra® High Performance-Flexible Growth Medium™ (HP-FGM™) provides superior erosion control immediately upon application and enhances seed germination. This technologically advanced matrix retains more than 99% of soil to reduce turbidity of runoff for up to 18 months. It also delivers 800% better initial germination.
Flexterra® HP combines both chemical and mechanical bonding techniques to lock the engineered medium in place and promote accelerated germination with minimal soil loss.
100% safe for aquatic and terrestrial life forms, Flexterra® HP has no nets or threads to endanger wildlife. It uses 100% biodegradable crimped interlocking fibers and 100% recycled and phyto-sanitized wood fibers. Earth-friendly and sustainable, it is a result of Profile’s Green Design Engineering™ — cost-effective and environmentally superior solutions through the design, manufacture and application of sustainable erosion control and vegetation establishment technologies.
If failure isn’t an option, ProGanics™ Biotic Soil Media™ (BSM™) is your solution. All too many erosion control and revegetation projects fail due to depleted soils with low levels of organic matter, nutrients and biological activity. Trucking in supplemental topsoil or compost is one solution, but a very time-consuming, costly and unreliable one. ProGanics Biotic Soil Media (BSM) is just the opposite.
Hydraulically applied for fast application, even on difficult to access sites, this Engineered Soil Media (ESM) is proven to help soils reach their full potential to support sustainable vegetation—and help you close out jobs more quickly. ProGanics contains all the key elements of healthy topsoil for “life insurance” on even the most deficient sites. Unless you are certain the soil on your project site contains the elements necessary to sustain plant growth, you can’t afford not to use ProGanics.
