GOLF

Wood-Lok HPM, Wood-Lok BFM and Wood-Lok SMM are commonly used hydraulic erosion control mulches for golf course construction.  These products will control soil erosion and hold seeds in place while turfgrass establishes.   Wood-Lok 300 and Wood-Lok 100 are excellent hydraulic solutions for flat to moderate slopes. Used in fairways, roughs, tees, outside sand trap walls and bunkers, hydraulic seeding is a proven method of planting grass and an easy way to draw distinct lines between grass types.
