Before & After

Pulverized Top Soil

Used for blending or topping heavy clay soils. Aids in establishing new plantings by improving site conditions.

Premium Shredded Hardwood Mulch

Premium Hardwood Bark Mulch is premium grade bark mulch, double processed and screened for size.  This plant friendly, bark material is produced mostly from red and white oak and has minimal wood fiber.  It also enhances any landscape with its rich, dark color contrasting with the foliage and blooms of trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals.

When spread correctly, reduces water loss, prevents erosion and minimizes weed growth. Premium Hardwood Mulch evens out soil temperature which helps prevent damage from the freeze-thaw cycle and mitigates winter heaving. This is a light-weight, easy-to-handle mulch for all season benefits.

Our high-quality color-enhanced mulch is made from local hardwood materials and biodegradable, environmentally-friendly dyes that provide all the benefits of regular wood mulch, including soil enhancement over time, temperature and moisture control, and weed suppression.

Red Dyed Mulch

Standard Bark Mulch

Mulching the landscape helps retain moisture, moderates soil temperature, reduces weed growth and helps prevent frost heave. When used around trees and shrubs, it provides a protective barrier.

Blended compost is an excellent soil amendment, providing nutrients needed for plant growth while loosening hard clay soils. Blending reduces clumping and improves material flow for easier application at the landscape site.
