Abby's Mulch Tips

 

  • What type of mulch should I use?

    • The type of landscape mulch you use depends on your application.  You should decide which color of mulch is needed for enhancing your landscape.  The mulches, which are not dyed, will fade faster than the color enhanced mulches, depending on the amount of sunlight that hits them. Both kinds of mulches will reduce water loss from the soil; improve soil quality and slow weed growth.

      Playground Safety Fiber is designed for use under playground structures.  It can also be used for jogging trails, dog runs and horse arenas.

  • What makes good mulch?

    • This can be very confusing, particularly because what’s sold as “mulch” in many cases isn’t really very suitable for performing the full range of duties that I think mulch should accomplish.

      An organic substance (meaning deriving from some living or formerly living matter);

      Fine- to medium-textured so it will break down into the underlying soil, but substantial enough to stay put; Preferably aged Dark in color, like soil is 

      Available locally at a good price, preferably in bulk delivery

      To elaborate: Any mulch I use in my ornamental beds must be fine-to-medium textured and dark colored so it looks good. One caveat: Very fine-textured materials like sawdust do not make good mulch as they cake and fail to decompose.

      Why use a product that has been aged or composted before you use it as mulch? That extra step really makes a difference in the mulch being ready to do its job as a soil-improver.

  • What is a cubic yard of mulch

    • The most common size of bagged mulch is 2 cubic feet. Bulk mulch sells by the cubic yard. One cubic yard of mulch is equal to 13.5 bags of mulch. 

  • How many cubic yards of mulch do I need?

    • Multiply your total area in feet by how deep you want your mulch in inches. For example, if your square footage is 648 and you want a 2-inch depth, multiply 648 by 2 to get 1296 (648 x 2 = 1296). Divide your answer by 324 (1 cubic yard of mulch will cover 324 square feet 1 inch deep).

  • Why should I use Playground Safety Fiber over “rubber mulches”?

    • As rubber mulch heats up, it releases toxic gases such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and another class of chemicals called polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).

      These gases have been found to cause irritation of the nasal and respiratory passages, central nervous system damage, depression, headaches, nausea, dizziness, eye and kidney damage, and dermatitis. Playground Safety Fiber is comprised of all natural hardwood chips.

  • How much does a yard of mulch weigh?

    • Weights for products will vary due to moisture content. Typically, mulch products weigh between 400-800 lbs. per cubic yard; Compost weighs between 1000 – 1600 lbs. and soil blends weigh between 2200-2700 lbs.

  • How much mulch can my pickup hold?

    • A full size ¾ or 1 ton pickup can hold 2-3 cubic yards, slightly rounded, but weight must be considered. Most full size pickups can handle 3 yards of mulch, 2 yards of compost or 1-1.5 yards of soil product depending on the size of the pickup truck bed. Never load more than what is reasonable or what your vehicle is specified to carry.
