Mulch is a layer of (usually organic) material applied to the surface of soil. It may be permanent (like plastic sheeting) or temporary (like bark chips).
It can be applied to bare soil or around existing plants. Mulches of manure or compost are incorporated naturally into the soil by the activity of worms and other organisms. The process is used both in commercial crop production and in gardening, and when applied correctly, can dramatically improve soil productivity.
People apply mulch to conserve soil moisture, improve the fertility and health of the soil, reduce weed growth and enhance the visual appeal of an area.

Arbor Mulch is our homemade recycled mulch product, made from tree trimmings brought to us by local tree services. This mulch typically consists of pine, fir, poplar, ash, juniper and acacia trees. These materials are fed through our horizontal grinder to create usable mulch pieces.
Top dress with 2-3 inches of Arbor Mulch for an inexpensive solution for moisture retention, weed control and erosion. It’s particularly effective in hill side applications with high winds. Our Arbor Mulch has a natural forest floor appearance and the fines present in the material make it a comfortable, compacted walking surface.
Smaller than standard walk-on barks, this material has the lush appearance and cushioned feel of the forest floor. Consisting of various particle sizes, this fibrous, woody bark mixture interlocks after installation and is often used as ground cover in high wind locations.
Medium Shred is made from tree trimmings from home owners and tree service companies. It primarily consists of trees and other hard woods. These woods are processed through our horizontal grinder, and then are sent through a screen where they are reduced to 1 ½” in size.
Medium Shred is an excellent product for placing on hillsides or in high wind locations, and around plants where it can help retain moisture, control weeds and help prevent erosion.
Pacific Mulch is made from recycled tree trimmings brought to us by homeowners, professional tree services and landscapers.
The tree trimmings are run through a grinder, then screened to separate out the larger pieces, leaving a fine organic mulch. Great for use as a ground cover.
