Mulch… What is it? What does it do?

The application of Mulch in hydroseeding creates a blanket over the soil surface. Thus, it provides porosity, absorption and protection against erosion to promote a rapid germination of the seed.
The characteristic green color of this mulch is photodegradable, disappearing the effect after 48-72 hours. This green color serves as a tracer at the time of its projection by means of hidrosowers, avoiding excessive overlaps between passes and clearings, that would diminish the effectiveness of the hidrosowing.

¿What is Mulch?

-Preserve the surface structure of the soil

-Moderate the temperature.

-Retain humidity excellently.

– Improves the percentage of germination uniformly in all the projected surface.

– It stays in place until the vegetation is established.

– Absorbs rain energy.

– Helps to improve fertilization with biodegradable substances that are friendly to the environment.

-Landscaping.
