ELOT TS 1501-10-05-04-00 Lawn planting on slopes by hydroseeding

The purpose of this Technical Specification is to lay down the requirements for the installation of lawn planting on slopes using the method of hydroseeding.
Hydroseeding improves soils of moderate fertility with ingredients that create favourable conditions for the commencement of microbial activity which are then enriched with organic ingredients.
Lawn planting on slopes contributes to their protection against surface corrosion and achieves:
 The aesthetic restoration of a landscape project which has been degraded by construction
 Avoiding the immediate impact of rain on the slopes resulting in erosion of granular soils and condensation of clay soils
 The increase of the filtering capacity of the surface through the effect of the roots
 The containment of the organic matter generated
 The creation of conditions that facilitate and accelerate further physical restoration
 The creation of more favourable soil conditions by maintaining and improving soil fertility for future plantings
 The reduction of the impact of wind and surface run-off via the combined effect of foliage–roots
 The strengthening of the stability of the surfaces through the effect of the roots linking soil granules (functioning as tensile reinforcement)
 The reduction of the surface drying of the soil and the improvement of its response to frost and contraction-expansion effects.

9. Brief Statement of Grounds
1. The update of the Hellenic Technical Specifications (HTS), ΕLOT TS 1501 ΧΧΧΧ:2009 series, constitutes an immediate priority, due to the technological and scientific advances made in the fields of materials and European standards since their adoption.
2. Greece is obliged to comply with the recommendations of the OECD 1st toolbox — TOOLKIT I (OECD Competition Assessment Reviews, Greece/Sector: Building Materials. p. 328, No 12-15),
3. The texts of these Hellenic Technical Specifications constitute a major quality upgrade of the existing Technical Specifications and Technical or Special Tender Specifications used currently in the public procurement of construction works.
4. These texts lead to the harmonisation of the Hellenic Technical Specifications with the applicable International and European Standards and facilitate the goal of a Single European Market in the field of construction works.
