Our ENHANCED HYDROSEEDING process is
vastly superior to standard hydroseeding. The
process uses enriched nutrient meals and fibers with
added natural growth factors and nutrients in place
of cheaper wood fiber mulches that add no value
toward making your grass grow. We get dramatically
better results that regular hydroseeding at a
reasonable cost. No chemicals or cheap fertilizers
are used in enhanced hydroseeding process unlike
other "budget" or low cost hydroseeders.
Clay Doctor Soil Treatment system for Clay soil
- if your property is cursed with heavy clay soil,
we have the solution. Mistaya's proprietary Clay
Soil Modifier system will change you hard pan,
sticky clay soil into a softer more fertile loam.
The Clay Doctor process uses a liquid
mixture that can be applied or injected right through
the surface of your lawn. Within days the soil
underneath is transformed into a softer, looser more
granular loam by a process know as ionization and
granulation. The result creates a vigorous exchange of
electrical charges in the soil/clay particles,
effectively neutralizing the ability of the platelet
to attract and bind water, elements, and molecules.
The clay soils then behave more like a loamy soil
after the treatment. Once the treatment is done the
soil is changed permanently and the treatment does not
need to be repeated in the future.
Our main operations areas in Alberta are Red Deer,
Calgary, Okotoks, High River, Cochrane, Dewinton,
Millarville, Langdon, Chestermere, Olds, Sundre,

Commercial lawns and Parks often have
degraded lawns due to soil compaction, this is a
huge problem when clay soils are used for the
substrate of these lawns. After years of people
walking on these lawns the soil becomes compacted
to consistency of concrete. Once this happens, the
grass will no longer thrive and go rapidly into
The water holding capacity of this soil is
extremely poor, with most rainfall and irrigation
simply running off. When hot weather hits, the
soil dries out within a day or so and the lawn
goes dormant. After treatment wit Clay Doctor soil
modifier, the compaction is almost instantly
relieved and the absorption potential of the soil
increases to the point where it can hold onto
moisture for weeks instead of days.

Mistaya Land can seed or hydroseed this low
maintenance drought tolerant lawn mix or a micro
clover- eco grass mix on your city yard, acreage
or commercial property.
We can seed this mix right into an existing lawn
with our liquid top dressing system.
Eco grass is made up of 6 or more types of rugged
and fine fescue seeds and some hardy native short
grasses. This marvelous blend of grasses produces
a fine, soft turf ideal for lawns. It is durable,
salt tolerant and requires very little watering
compared to sod based blue grass lawns. It looks
like any standard lawn, it's not much different.
The low maintenance features also
includes reduced mowing requirements. On acreages
or parks, the grass can be left without mowing
indefinitely or trimmed to look neat with only a
few cuttings a year, requires very little
fertilizer and water.
Micro Clover is a new innovation from
Denmark used on sport fields. When planted with
Eco grass it is the ultimate Eco Friendly Lawn
that stays astonishingly green and lush even in
dry clay soils. Clover is a legume and produces
nitrogen naturally in good quantities in the soil
that is readily available to grass, this
mean your lawn will actually fertilize itself
eliminating the need for nitrogen fertilizer
Clover leaves are so tiny that they blend into the
lawn visually, its difficult to
tell the difference from the grass blades as
clover naturally mixes into turf.
Drain / Leach Field on your Septic System ?
We can fix failed drain fields in heavy clay soil.
Our high tech Ionic transfer solution

Turns any poorly drained hardpan clay and heavy clay
soil into a high percolation loamy soil with ideal
drainage within 2 days or less.
Mistaya Land and Water has a cutting edge
process to fix failing drain fields in clay soil
that can save you thousands of
dollars in repairs. Alberta's clay soil is
notoriously poor for drainage fields. Many septic
fields have to be drastically oversized to provide
enough soil percolation for them to work properly.
Problems and failures occur even in properly
sized drain fields after 7 or more years of use as
more sodium (salt) is introduced from family home
waste water. The soil in the drain field gradually
turns into hardpan clay which will not absorb
water any longer. Once this
happens wet spots appear, the field starts to
smell of sewage and the biological material in the
drain field is killed by lack of oxygen. The drain
field becomes irreversibly clogged at this point
and is in total failure and rendered unusable.
In the past the only way to fix this problem
was to excavate the drainfield and completely
replace it in another location or infill it with
expensive aggregates. this could cost tens of
thousands of dollars to fix. Our clay doctor and
biological digester treatment can reclaim the old
failed drain field in a matter of days for a very
reasonable cost click here for more

Old Lawn Renovations We
are able to offer a number of solutions to
fix your old, tired lawn:
Dressing - Top dressing with compost
or top soil for lawns, acreage's, parks,
commercial lawns, and sport fields. Rejuvenates
old tired and compacted lawns. We
can reseed, recondition the soil and fertilize
all at the same time. Adding high quality liquid
compost infusions or "compost tea " which is
amazingly beneficial to your tired old lawn.
The soil microbes in the infusion will restore
beneficial soil microorganisms that fix
nitrogen, aerate and digest organic matter
important to plant health. We kill large volumes
of soil microbes every year by using chlorinated
city water for watering our lawns and also by
starvation when we remove the clippings, often
the only source of organic matter our lawns will
ever get. Lawns top dressed with compost or
treated with compost tea infusions respond very
well and do better than lawns where chic al
fertilizers are used. Chemical fertilizers send
the lawn into overdrive and deplete the soil
quickly, the lawn then deteriorates and can't be
restored by adding more seed or yet more
damaging chemical fertilizers. Once a lawn gets
to this state both the soil and lawn require a
major renovation to restore it.
Verticutter / Slash
Seeding - Need your old
lawn reseeded ? Our top of the line Lawn
Renovator/verticutter performs a number of
functions at the same time on your existing
lawn, such as dethatching, aeration, seeding
below the surface and resurfacing old lumpy
compacted soil. Verticutters also cut through
the matted surface roots (stolons) that reduce
water penetration and create and hold the brown
thatch layer that makes your lawn look dry and
brown. Thatch is not caused by lawn clippings,
it is made up of dead roots and turf plants
which are high in tannin and cellulose that are
difficult to decay. The verticutter cuts and
works up this layer with rows of vertical slicer
blades and deposits new seed under the surface.
This unit will do an awesome restoration of your
old lawn..plus we can seed with lower
maintenance Eco Grass at the same time for a
more Eco logically friendly lawn. Much more cost
effective way to renew your lawn than replacing
it with new soil and sod.
Eco Grass Sod - New
this Year ! We are now offering a new fine
fescue sod that is both Eco logically friendly
and much less maintenance than traditional
Kentucky Blue Grass (KBG) sod. More Drought
tolerant and requires less fertilizer, water and
care than KBG sod.
Note: We are not a sod farm, all of our sod
is for installation by our company only, we do
not offer sales for do it yourself installs.
Hydroseeding - We do
our hydroseeding different than most other
companies. We use very high grade seed and very
large seed ratios , up to 6 times the amount our
competitors use. We also treat the soil with
amendments and add organic enzymes and
nutrients. Why do we do this ?
Hydroseeding is mostly done as cheaply as
possible with low grade cheaper seed, no
additives and low seed volumes to keep the
profit ratio higher for the applicator. Poor
results are very common in Alberta as we have
high clay and alkaline soil which reduces
germination success. Our applications always use
a lot more seed for near sod like results. The
soil treatments we use are unique and basically
destroy the binding and alkaline agents in clay
..this makes a huge difference Organic
Restoration and Reseeding - This is a
unique process and produces very dramatic
results for old lawns. It also works well for
old unproductive horse pastures.
The process involves using a high volume of
liquid Organic amendments like ultra
enzymes, soil softener, compost tea, microbe
infusion, natural sugars, soil enhancer's, PH
balancing products and many other cutting edge
natural biological enhancements that fix,
revitalize and restore microbial activity to old
exhausted soil. We often reseed the entire lawn
with Eco Grass and top dress it with high
organic mass compost as well...the result is a
dramatic pulse of organic activity and explosive
growth of both the old lawn and new seed. People
with 50 year old near dead lawns have been
amazed that their old lawn looked like new in a
matter of weeks. The new lawn will be much lower
maintenance and require less water, herbicides
and fertilizers. We can combine
any of the processes above to solve specific
needs including both top dressing and
hydroseeding over old lawns or Verticutting
slit seeding and top dressing for enhanced
