Hardwood mulch is the most finely ground of the three mulches we carry (pine bark and cedar being the other two). Therefore, it breaks down the fastest. It is the best choice if you are trying to build up sandy soil (since it breaks down quickly). If you spread it at about 2" thick, it should last the summer nicely but will certainly need replenishing the next year. It does tend to fade in the sun, so shady applications will better allow it to maintain its original color, a medium to dark brown.
It is sold by the yard, but if you only need a little, you are welcome to bring a storage container, garbage pail, garbage bags, or other container to fill, and we will price it accordingly.
Minimum purchase for free delivery is 5 yards. If you need less than 5 yards, delivery is $25, and you must call to order if ordering less than 5.
How much do you need? One yard usually covers about 150 square feet, or an area that is 10' x 10', for example. This is figured at approximately 2" thick. The thinner you lay it down, the further it will go, but it may not do the job you need it to. If it is a new area that has not had mulch before, if you tend to be less attentive to pulling weeds, and/or if you water frequently, you will want at least 2"; however, if you are simply freshening up and top dressing old mulch, if your garden beds are in the shade where weeds do not typically grow as quickly, or if you are able to pay a lot of attention to weed maintenance, a thinner layer should suffice.
