A layer of mulch will help stop many weed seeds from germinating, reducing the need for herbicides. And mulches help soil retain moisture, reducing the need for watering.
Mulches also can improve the appearance of your garden. Bark mulches provide uniformly rich colors to make your plants stand out. And mulch can keep plants clean by preventing soil from splashing onto leaves during rainstorms.
Our mulches improve the quality of your soil as well, by adding organic material as they decompose.
Mulch is sold in three quantities to fit your project—in bulk, by the bag, and in compact, portable ECO Bales—and in several colors and textures:
- Bulk Premium Hardwood Mulch (double shredded)
