Growganics is a premium organics blanket able to work with any exposed ground and site conditions. The single-pass application makes it particularly suited to infrastructure batters and difficult-to-access areas. As Growganics achieves 100% connectivity with a surface, it minimises the delamination that can occur with other methods.
Being the manufacturer of the compost used in all Growganics applications, we also offer assured product quality, controlling the inputs used in its production. Furthermore, clients gain unmatched cost-competitiveness and supply assurance via NuGrow’s multiple manufacturing facilities located throughout Queensland. On completion, the high-quality compost improves the organic content of depleted subgrade soil, and tailored seed mixes ensure long-term natural rehabilitation specific to a region.
Growganics comes with our commitment to delivering clients a friendly, expert, cost-effective service. Our experienced team takes the time to understand each client’s site, specifications and seeding requirements through our comprehensive consultations. We take soil samples at our site inspections for testing and then design site-specific amelioration – key to successful results. Each application is customised to a project’s specific requirements and we engage our network of soil and seed specialists when needed to deliver a fit-for-purpose solution. The single-pass application also gives clients the best of consistency and efficiency, supported by follow-up reviews of site progress.

- Achieving application rates of up to 3,000m² per day
Warrego Highway, Kingsthorpe
This site featured two completely different substructures, needing a customised solution to stabilise and vegetate the 16,000m² of roadside batters and bridge abutments. Growganics achieved immediate erosion control and sustainable growth – all delivered amid steep batters and live traffic. The results from there were exceptional, with 100% establishment of permanent perennial grasses within six months despite poor natural weather conditions and significantly below average rainfall.
Toowoomba Second Range Crossing, Toowoomba
With Hydroganics used as our primary method for Toowoomba Second Range Crossing, Growganics offered an excellent solution for a 4,000m² area of batter benches. The task was to raise levels surrounding the catch and bench drains to enable water flow. With difficult access issues, our team had to blow compost for more than 100m. The work was delivered quickly, ensuring our teams avoided construction works and supported timely project delivery.
Lamington National Park Road, Canungra
While the size area for this project was small, at 1,200m², the extremely steep slope posed a significant hurdle for our client. We were brought in to stabilise and vegetate two batters affected by land slips caused by cyclone Debbie. Our team had to overcome the very steep terrain, limited access for machinery and live traffic in this logistically challenging project. The application was a success and provided the final touches on the important road repair project.
Port of Brisbane Motorway, Brisbane
Seymour Whyte Constructions
After a 1,000m² trial, our client multiplied our scope 100 times over. We treated various subgrades to stabilise and vegetate roadside batters and bridge abutments along the road duplication, tackling a highly saline environment with a bespoke species mix. While Hydroganics was used for the majority, Growganics offered an innovative alternative for two areaswhere live traffic conditions were the most constrained and a dry application was needed to remove the risk of wet material spray-off.
