  1. HOT CLIMATE CONDITIONS GENERALLY DEMAND MORE MULCH PER SQ FT FOR BETTER GRASS ESTABLISHMENT; MULCH APPLICATION IN THE SOUTHWEST REGION IN THE SUMMER MIGHT BE AS HIGH AS 2,400 LBS PER ACRE, WHILE IN THE SPRING & FALL 1,800 LBS PER ACRE.
  2. WHILE THE ABOVE CHARTS USE 50 LBS PER 1,000 SQ FT AS THE NOMINAL OUTPUT OF A HYDRO-MULCH MACHINE, THE ACTUAL OUTPUT WILL VARY DEPENDING ON THE SPRAY NOZZLE USED AND THE SPRAYING TECHNIQUE & SKILL OF THE APPLICATOR.
  3. THE NOMINAL AMOUNT OF MULCH PER ACRE IS 2,000 LBS.
  4. THE NOMINAL MIX OF MULCH TO WATER IS 1 LB MULCH TO 2 GALS OF WATER.
