Mulch & Bark
Hemlock mulch is made from finely ground wood, and bark from the hemlock tree. It has natural red and orange tones which add a rich color to garden beds.
While some forms of hemlock plants are poisonous, hemlock mulch is not, because it is derived from a non-poisonous tree that is uses the hemlock name.
This mulch can make your landscaping more colorful, more beautiful, and is more beneficial for your plants. Mulches can be used on your flower beds, around your trees and shrubs, on walkways, in playgrounds, or anywhere you can think of.
By applying bark mulch on top of your plant soil, you insulate & protect your plant's delicate roots from excessive heat and trap moisture to help with summer droughts. Finely-ground hardwood mulch with a rich brown color will enhance any landscape area. The color helps bring out the most in your plant foliage and flowers.
This product is available in 2 ft³ and by the cubic yard. One cubic yard is a front-end loader scoop, visually though the volume is about the same as a large bathtub.
Mulch & Bark Yield Information & Calculation
The initial application of two (2)-inch layer of mulch can save you yard-maintenance time. Because it smothers weeds, you do less weeding and you won't have to trim grass along borders. It reduces evaporation so you won't need to water as often. Another advantage of bark mulch is that it breaks the force of rain which prevents mud splattering on the side of your house. Mulch will last 3 to 6 years after your initial application and needs only the addition of a minimum amount of new material each year to maintain the proper depth of 2 inches and renew that rich brown color.
1 Cubic Yard = 27 Cubic Feet = (9) 3 Cubic Foot Bags = (18) 1.5 Cubic Foot Bags
Cubic Feet = Area (SF) x Depth (Inches) x .084
Cubic Yards = Area (SF) x Depth (Inches) x .003
One Cubic Yard will cover at:
(1'')--> 320 SF, (2'')--> 160 SF, (3'')--> 110 SF, (4")--> 80 SF.
