Hydro Seeding Mulch

Hydro Seeding Mulch

Penetrates, Preserves and Protects

Asphalt emulsified in water makes an excellent mulching agent and is advantageous in windy areas and on steep slopes. In the case of hydroseeding, the residual asphalt forms a light coating on the mulch to hold it in place until seeds can germinate. Because of its dark colour, the asphalt emulsion absorbs and stores solar heat during the seed’s germination period. The asphalt emulsion also tends to hold moisture in the soil, promoting rich and speedy growth.

Emulsified asphalt can be used as a “tie-down”, spray-applied over straw and hay mulch or placed in a single blended application together with the mulch. For decades, seeding and mulching contractors have found emulsified asphalt to be a superior material for holding mulch in place until plants germinate.
