Eco-Fibre Mulch

Premium Wood Fiber Mulch

Description

EcoFibre® for use in hydraulically planting grass stolon, grass seed or other seeds, either alone or in combination with fertilizers and other approved additives, EcoFibre is a fully biodegradable, Hydraulic Mulch (HM) composed of 100% recycled Thermally Refined™ wood fibers. Wood composed of 100% recycled long strand, thermally refined (within a pressure vessel) wood fibers that have been pressure treated to 80 – 85 psi (552 – 586 kPa) with steam and heat treated for 15 minutes at 380 – 440 degrees Fahrenheit (193 – 226 degrees Celsius). The HM is phytosanitized, free from plastic netting and forms a bond with the soil surface to create a porous and absorbent erosion layer that enhances germination and plant growth. The EcoFibre wood fibers are colored green with a non-toxic dye to facilitate visual metering during application. EcoFibre versatility allows it to be highly effective in many applications: erosion control, slope stabilization, dust abatement, landscape design, land development, and golf course construction.
