Hydraulic Mulch is a planting process that uses a slurry of seed and mulch which is sprayed over prepared ground to promote vegetation. Nilex carries the following hydromulch solutions to assist with your vegetation establishment challenges:

High End Hydraulic Mulches

MulchMax FiberMatrix HP (High Performance)

High Performance blend with 10% tackifier is engineered to contour, with outstanding soil surface and inter-fiber adhesion. Suitable to apply on moderate to steep slopes. Made from organic, naturally-occurring materials, it is 100% biodegradable and requires less water to mix than a wood-only mulch.

MulchMax Ultra (Extreme Slopes - 3:1 to 2:1 / 2:1 to 1:1+)

Manufactured from natural wood cellulose fiber and the toughest agricultural bast fibers, MulchMax Ultra provides erosion control and rapid vegetation establishment on the steepest slopes. The fibers are woven into an intricate soil stabilization formula to promote complete coverage, when applied at specified rates. MulchMax Ultra iscompletely biodegradable and yields to vegetation establishment while maintaining extended erosion protection.

With tackifier combined into the mulch, MulchMax Ultra is a cost-effective, one-step application with high tank-loading rates.

Earth Essence® HGM2

Earth Essence HGM2 products are hydraulically applied materials to advance the hydro-seeding, erosion control, revegetation and soil building industries. They contain a proprietary blend of natural fibers, growth mediums, soil stabilizers, natural plant and microbial growth stimulators to provide a multi-phased releasing system. 

HydroBlanket Bonded Fiber Matrix (BFM)

Anchors intimately to the soil through proprietary cross-linked, polysaccharide tackifiers and activators. Dries to form a breathable, built-in-place blanket. Completely biodegrades, is non-toxic and environmentally safe. Compared to erosion control blankets, it: Is safer and easier to apply; eliminates staples and stakes; tenting and rilling; and, it eliminates extensive and more costly site preparation.

Wood Fiber Mulch

MulchMax 101Wood

MulchMax 101Wood hydroseeding mulch is the practical solution for standard hydro-seeding requirements where productivity matters. Our proprietary blend of wood and high performance flexible bast fibers allow MulchMax 101Wood to closely contour to the soil while maintaining the traditional cover of wood. One bag of MulchMax 101wood goes a long way in the tank with only 90 gallons of water required for every 50lb bag of mulch.


Terra-Wood is a fully biodegradable, Hydraulic Mulch (HM) composed of 100% recycled Thermally Refined™ wood fibers. The HM is phyto-sanitized, free from plastic netting, and upon application forms an intimate bond with the soil surface to create a porous and absorbent layer that enhances germination and plant growth.
