There is no house too big or too small for our highly professional and courteous crew. We've been hydroseeding homes from the beginning, consider bringing us out as a cost effective way to establish your lawn or any green space!
Our commercial projects have been as basic as hydroseeding sports fields, and as unique as needing a crane to lift a full hydro-seeder to the top of a new apartment complex in Portland, Oregon for a rooftop garden. We have never had a workplace safety incident in all our years of working in and around construction sights. We expect the most of our crews, and are not satisfied with less.
Restoration work is restoring land that has been disturbed due to man caused construction or natural disaster. We have worked to restore decomissioned dam sites and we have restored historic off channel tidal influenced wetlands on the Columbia River.
Revegation is the ability to restore site specific or intended areas on everything from golf courses and athletic fields to pastures or environmentally sensitive areas.
We are a family owned, independently operated Hydro-Mulching company out of beautiful Boring, Oregon.
When we started this company in 1981, we were one of a handful of hydro-seeders in the Pacific Northwest. We take pride in our long history in our region, and we are proud to still be going strong today.
Our goal started simple and remains simple: bring the highest quality hydro-seeding to the highest amount of customers. We started small, and have grown throughout the years- never forgetting what is most important. The satisfaction of the people who call us for their hydro-seeding needs!
WHO WE ARE
Barry and Lee Ann Cook
Barry is a native of Bozeman, Montana, and Lee Ann is native of Fresno, California. They got married in 1980 after meeting at college in Montana, then made the move to the Pacific Northwest in 1981. They started Northwest Hydro-Mulchers soon after; with an 1,100 gallon Bowie hydroseeder and a pickup.
Since then, Barry has become a leading voice in the revegatation and erosion control industry. He has been the keynote speaker for the International Erosion Control Assosication (IECA) conferences on several occasions and he has authored several white papers on the subjects of erosion control and revegatation that have been published by the IECA.
Barry has also served as a consultant to engineers, landscape architects and hydro-seeding professionals in the Pacific Northwest, the American South, and internationally in Mexico and Japan.
Barry and Lee Ann still own Northwest Hydro Mulchers together after 35 years- and as their family has grown, two of their three sons have decided to join the family business.
