Natural vegetative support is the best way to prevent erosion from occurring. Our line of seed and mulch is based on quality and diversity. Colonial provides mixes, custom blends and coatings with fast germination and rapid growth to prevent your project from suffering the consequences of erosion damage. We also stock DOT and Blue Tag certified products. Both Contractor’s Blend Seed and DOT Tagged Seed are carefully formulated to meet each region’s specific needs for climate and soil conditions.
Common applications for Colonial’s seed mixes include: slopes, channels, wetlands, stream beds, dune plantings, reclamation seeding, landfills, and many more.

Hydraulic mulch is available in a number of different blends depending on the specific application’s needs. Cellulose, or paper mulch, is one of the most common hydromulches. However, Colonial also provides wood mulch, straw mulch, and cellulose/wood mulch. Specialty mulches such as Flexterra® and Covergrow™ are ideal for areas that need greater erosion prevention such as steep slopes and hard to reach areas.
Additives such as wetting agents, humic agents, bio-stimulants, and root additives are available for specific project needs.
