Hydro mulching typically consists of applying a mixture of wood fiber and stabilizing emulsion (tackifier) with hydromulching equipment to temporarily protect exposed soils from erosion by wind and water. This practice is suitable for steep slopes, stockpiles, large land areas and land that will be re-disturbed following an extended period of inactivity.
Provides temporary erosion protection prior to germination and seedling establishment
Suitable for hard to reach areas (e.g. steep slopes and stockpiles)
Relatively fast operation, covering large areas
Very cost effective alternative
