Ultra & Premium Hardwood Mulch

This high quality multi-purpose mulch decays quickly. This allows it to enrich your soil, nourish new trees and shrubs, and extend the growing season for better plant establishment. Hardwood mulch is the perfect building block for building up your own rich, black topsoil. Because it generates more heat through the accelerated decay rate, you need to use caution when spreading it around herbs, vegetables and annuals.

Texture: 2" long shreds and smaller fines
Decay Rate: 45 to 65% annually
Color: Coffee brown

Michigan 100% Cedar Mulch

Cedar from Michigan is an excellent all-purpose bark mulch. It has a shreddy texture to keep it positioned on sloping landscapes. It repels many insects, and decays at a very moderate rate. While the initial color fades in a few weeks, the silvery beige it becomes is very natural and soothing in appearance. Many items marketed as "Cedar Mulch" are actually 10% or less of cedar! We certify ours as 100% cedar.

Cedar Mulch

Texture: 2"-4" long shreds
Decay Rate: 20-25% annually
Color: Golden blonde
Color Life: 6-8 weeks

Color-Enhanced Mulch

When appearance is your priority, our Color-Enhanced Mulches are your best choice. The pigments (mostly iron oxides and carbon) originate from the soil and are earth friendly. We dye them here on site with blend of clean recycled pallet chips and millchips to absorb plenty of color. Magnets on the machines remove the metal and nails.

This product is our best seller and is known for long-lasting color. The final drying occurs in your landscape in the sun…so NEVER spread dyed mulch in the rain or just before it rains! Also no sprinklers for 24 hours. You are going to love how your landscape looks!

Premium Pine Bark 'Pennies' Mulch

Flecks and shreds of Michigan Red Pine bark are a bright, pretty copper color. The lower pH of this mulch is great for acid-loving plants. Your azaleas, rhododendron, hydrangea, woody perennials and evergreens will love you for a top dressing of this attractive mulch. It spreads as easily as frosting. As soon as it rains (or you water it) the fines slip to the bottom leaving a uniform texture of bark across your landscape beds. Not recommended for steep hillsides, but beautiful anywhere the soil is essentially level.

This is not the inferior slabwood or recycled Christmas trees sold by other suppliers, this is the good stuff!

Premium Pine Bark Pennies Mulch

Texture: Penny-sized flecks & fine shreds
Decay Rate: 30% annually
Color: Copper brown
Color Life: 2 - 3 months

Pine Straw Mulch (Bales)

Southern Georgia pine straw needles are 10"-14" long and are hand baled (to prevent breakage) in lightweight, easy-to-handle bales of approximately 1/6 cu yd per bale. These are great for increasing the acid content to your soil, maintaining moisture and restricting weed growth. It has an attractive pine forest look with a natural reddish-brown color and offers an interesting texture alternative to wood mulch.
