Our Triple Ground Mulch is processed one extra time for a finer, more consistent grind and rich brown appearance. Eco-friendly, no construction C&D wood or pallets in this mulch! We’re able to after this classic mulch at a discount because it is colorant free. This much receives its color from a grind and age process-something not all of our competitors offer.

Recommended application is around 3 inches for best weed resistance, moisture retention, and frost protection. You should go a little less around small plants, however with less all around you could be allowing weeds to grow or plantings to suffer from frost or extreme heat. The mulch acts like a blanket to extreme temps and droughts. You will find yourself mulching more often when too little is used. More than 3″ is just wasteful and could choke out plants. 4″ can be used around well established trees where you want no competition to insure great growth. Make sure mulched tree rings taper off near the bark of the tree.
