This was posted on our Facebook page last year, but since we are back into the season of mulching (if it ever stops raining!) we thought maybe this would be a helpful tool to post again, and hopefully will be able to reference it quickly year after year.
We are in no way affiliated with this website but found this to be helpful and thought we'd share it. It tells you how to's, a mulch calculator, FAQs and there is also an interactive tool on there. You can chose your house color (it's only the most common exterior colors) and then you can choose the different colors of mulch to help you visualize what it will look like.
As you can see, we offer 5 different mulches; Black, Red, Dyed Dark Brown, Double Ground Brown, and Single Ground Brown. Both the Double Ground Brown and the Single Ground Brown are natural mulches with no dyes. The only difference between the two is that one has been ground up twice for a finer mulch, while the other has only been ground once for larger pieces.
Here are some helpful tips about colored mulch:
-Mulch should slope away from homes and buildings for proper water runoff.
-Mulch should be installed on a day when no rain is in the forecast for 24 hours.
-Mulch will still be damp upon purchase and will not dry completely until spread in a landscape setting.
-Once dry, the colorant bonds to the mulch so it won't wash or leach.
-Use a tarp if unloading, as damp mulch may stain concrete or asphalt
-Do not apply mulch during rain.
We sell our mulch by-the-yard. Our current pricing is $37.00 per yard for the Black, Red and Dyed Dark Brown. $33.00 per yard for the Double Ground Brown, and $23.00 per yard for the Single Ground Brown. *these prices include tax.
We will also deliver mulch to your home or business, we can deliver up to 20 yards at a time. We charge $2.50 a mile, with a $30.00 minimum.
Feel free to call us if you would like to schedule a mulch delivery or have any questions!
From everyone here at the mill, we will post about what has been going on around here, any interesting facts we may have for you, or an answer to a question that has come up.
