Slopes and other factors can require rates as high as 4500lbs/acre. As quality and application rates increase, so does the material and labour costs required to make the application. Also, the type or mulch can greater affect the success (or failure) of the job site. Paper mulches sprayed on by jet-agitation machines are “cheap”, but are highly ineffective during any kind of erosion events such as a heavy rainfall.
