What Is Hydromulching?

Hydromulching is the application of special seed blends designed to stabilize slopes through vegetative growth. Hydromulching is different from our typical hydroseeding services and is ideal for those seeking an erosion control application to protect their lakeside property.

How Hydromulching Works

There are three steps to our lakeshore hydroseeding process.

Hydroseed Spray

1. Assess Property

In order for our team to determine the amount of hydromulch material needed, as well as the blend of seed required for the specific existing vegetation and soil, we must come out to examine the current landscape conditions. The slope of the land can also impact the time it takes to do the job, and we will be able to give you a price estimate after this visit.

2. Schedule Service Day

Once we’ve decided the amount of seed necessary for your job, we will call you to set up a service date and time.

3. Spray Application

To ensure the most precise of applications, we utilize hydroseed trucks in the application stage. A quick, even coverage will lead to maximum vegetative growth and improved stabilization of your property, saving you time and money in future reparative costs that erosion can incur.

Who Needs Hydromulching?

  • Residential lakeshore homeowners: Homeowners along the shore will be comforted to know that hydromulching can help to protect their property (and its value) from erosion caused by rising water levels and high winds.
  • Commercial lakeshore property owners: Hydromulching ensures commercial property owners that their investment is protected from the effects of erosion.
  • Municipalities that manage local lakeshore conditions: Erosion can be detrimental to the environment as well as local tourism. Hydromulching provides a natural way to protect land and enhance the surroundings through vegetation.

Benefits of Hydromulch for Lakeshores

There are many reasons why hydromulching is the best choice, including:

Assessing the Job
Sustainable Icon


Hydromulching is a natural process that involves growth from the earth stabilizing land, rather than relying on manmade forms of erosion control like seawalls or plastic sheeting. Hydromulching can be reapplied as needed with little cost and no harm to the surrounding environment.

Affordable Icon


In comparison to other forms of lakeshore erosion control, like steel seawalls or concrete blocks, hydromulching is significantly more affordable because it relies on seed mixture as well as a streamlined application process.

Simplicity Icon


If you’re seeking a simple erosion control solution, hydromulching is it. The application is much easier and quicker than a hard form of erosion control like a seawall. After one application of our hydromulch spray, vegetative growth will start to stabilize slopes in just a few weeks.

Cost of Hydromulch

Factors that impact the cost of hydromulching include:

Location size: The larger your property, the more seed material and time it will take to hydromulch, resulting in a higher price. We are happy to provide an estimate to you based on your property size.

Product variety: We will determine what hydromulch seed mix to use based on the current conditions of your property. Some seed mixes will be more expensive than others based on beneficial additives.

DIY vs. Professional Lakeshore Hydroseeding

Save Time with Professional Hydromulching

Our hydroseed truck applications make distribution incredibly efficient and precise. DIY hydromulching would be difficult without our tools and trucks, as well as leave immense room for error, leaving parts of the property at risk of erosion.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

The installation of hard seawalls can actually make erosion worse. Unlike hydromulching, which is sustainable and friendly to the environment, seawalls can crumble and will need to be repaired at some point, which is a costly and erosive process.
