Product Description

Applegate Mulch Wood-Lok HPM High Performance Matrix Wood Mulch - 50 lb Bale

Applegate Mulch Wood-Lok HPM High Performance Matrix Wood Mulch consists of specially processed long strand virgin wood fibers along with a proprietary blend of high-strength, non-toxic, cross-linked organic binders. This combination gives Applegate Mulch Wood-Lok HPM High Performance Matrix Wood Mulch superior erosion protection without the addition of man-man, non-biodegradable synthetic fibers.

Applegate Mulch Wood-Lok HPM High Performance Matrix Wood Mulch is applied like mulch and forms a blanket that adheres to the soil surface immediately upon application. After Applegate Mulch Wood-Lok HPM High Performance Matrix Wood Mulch cures, the blanket helps retain soil surface from water and wind erosion.

The Applegate Mulch Wood-Lok HPM High Performance Matrix Wood Mulch blanket retains its integrity and protects the soil despite repeated rains for well beyond twelve months. The extra-long wood fibers form tent-like pockets, which aid in seed germination and plant growth. When Applegate Mulch Wood-Lok HPM High Performance Matrix Wood Mulch is applied over the soil surface the wood fibers twist and interlock with each other and the soil as they dry. Along with the high-strength binder the holding power of the wood fibers to the soil is much stronger than BFM (Bonded Fiber Matrix), thus providing superior erosion protection.

Applegate Mulch Wood-Lok HPM High Performance Matrix Wood Mulch is packaged in easy to handle plastic bags and will load quickly into all mechanical paddle agitated hydraulic seeding equipment. When Applegate Mulch Wood-Lok HPM High Performance Matrix Wood Mulch is mixed with water, it will form a homogenous slurry and can be used with seed and fertilizer. Applegate Mulch Wood-Lok HPM High Performance Matrix Wood Mulch will remain in suspension during agitation and pumping and the slurry does not dewater during the application process. The green color of Applegate Mulch Wood-Lok HPM High Performance Matrix Wood Mulch allows for an even application of material over the soil surface.
