Hydro-seeding with Fibramulch, sometimes referred to as hydro-mulching, is a fast, efficient grass planting process which is frequently more effective and economical than conventional seeding. The process begins by mixing mulch, seed, fertilizer, and water in a tank. The material is then pumped from the tank and sprayed onto the ground. The mixed material is often referred to as a slurry and looks like a soupy batch of green paper mache.

Once applied to the soil, the material enhances initial growth by providing a micro-environment beneficial to seed germination or sprig development.

If the area to be planted is smooth and manicured, the resulting grass surface will also be smooth and manicured. Golf greens are frequently hydro-mulched with Fibramulch. Hydro-seeding will produce turf that is almost weed free. The only weed seed that can be introduced must come from seed or sprig contamination. With Fibramulch, you are guaranteed a 100% weed-free and uncontaminated mulch for hydro-seeding. However, weed seed is almost always present in the soil and when the moisture and fertilizers are applied, weeds can emerge.

Fibramulch is made from recycled paper fibre. Raw materials are processed to achieve fibrous characteristics, and green dye is added for aesthetics and application monitoring.

A good Fibramulch application will reduce moisture evaporation from the soil. It also provides erosion resistance. When soil erosion is reduced or prevented, the seeds are held in place and a more uniform coverage of grass is assured.

Fibramulch also provides an organic, humus-like enhancement to the soil. This enhancement occurs when the Fibramulch begins to decompose, which occurs over the course of a few months to a year. The time required for decomposition is affected by the amount of available nitrogen and the temperature.
