Mulch Guy is proud to provide landscape mulch in bulk so that the cost per yard is reduced. This is also a perfect product for use as a garden mulch. A benefit to this type of mulch is it reinforces the whole environmental component of recycled product purchased in bulk. Our landscape mulch is a recycled wood product from the sawmill processing of trees. As the log is process the bark is stripped off prior to cutting it into boards. This by-product is then converted to a landscape product. Plastic bags are not added to the waste stream since the delivery is by our trucks or picked up in your own truck or container. This is also more economical way to get bulk wood mulch products.
What Mulch is
The English word mulch is probably derived from the German word molsch, meaning soft, beginning to decay. It no doubt referred to early gardeners' use of straw, leaves, and loose earth spread on the ground to protect the roots of newly planted trees and shrubs. This simulates the natural process that occurs in nature with leaves and needles falling and creating a protective layer on the soil.
Double ground mulch
Being a lumber by-product sold in bulk creates a usable product from a waste product of the lumber industry that is converted for landscape mulching. This frees up landfill space and helps to control the cost of lumber. Double grinding mulch is done to provide a consistant product free of large pieces. This also creates a uniform texture and look. Environmentally this material breaks down over time and does not have to be eventually removed such as plastic films would have to be. This breaking down enhances the soil and also prevents weed growth by blocking light for the seed to germinate and tying up some of the nutrients at the surface for the new weed seedlings to grow with. For a particularly good garden mulch that will also improve the topsoil below the mulch take a look at our eco-mulch so you can avoid black plastic mulching.
