BULK COMPOST & MULCH
One of the BEST things you can do for your plant material is to protect it with COMPOST and MULCH. Soil and mulch are what make your gardens successful. The correct soil and compost gives your plants nutrients they need and mulch protects the plants with:
- Reduces evaporation, allowing the plants to retain necessary moisture
- Suppresses weeds and with the retained moisture makes weeds easier to pull.
- Protects the plant structure against temperature extremes – cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
Compost – Enriches the soil, helping retain moisture and suppress plant diseases and pests. Reduces the need for chemical fertilizers. Encourages growth of healthy, beneficial bacteria and fungi to help breakdown organic matter. Our mulch has gone through three specific screening processes.

HOW TO CALCULATE BULK MATERIALS
To figure yards of bulk materials:
Length x Width x Depth in inches divided by 324 = c.y. needed
(12’ x 12’ x 3” = 432 ÷ 324 = 1.33 c.y.)
- Small truck general holds 1 skidloader bucket of mulch
- Full size with small box holds 1 ½ - 2 buckets of mulch
- Full size with full bed holds 4-5 buckets of mulch
Coverage for Bulk Materials 1 c.y. is 3’ x 3’ x 3’ (2 skid loader buckets full or 9 wheelbarrows) 1 c.y. covers:
- 325 s.f. @ 1” deep
- 162 s.f. @ 2” deep
- 108 s.f. @ 3” deep
- 81 s.f. @ 4” deep
- 54 s.f. @ 6” deep
