There are many types of mulches that can be used in hydroseeding with the selection constantly growing. Each mulch type is used for different purposes examples including tacking straw, using for low cost lawn establishment, premium lawn establishment, slope stabilisation, sever erosion control or even daily cover on landfills.
Price, application and availability are the usual factors that make the decision in choosing the ideal hydroseeding mulch.
