Bark Fines

Barkfines (AKA DOUBLE GROUND) are medium to medium dark brown particles about 1/2” and smaller with a fairly large portion smaller. It is a very popular low cost mulch which works especially well in beds with many small plants. It is made from virgin wood and bark which is ground fine, screened and aged to create a fine and uniform texture. It is quite effective in reducing weed growth. The fine texture makes it easy to spread, especially around small plants. Its fade characteristics is similar to hardwood shredded mulch

Colored Mulches

Colored mulch is composed of dyed particles which are mostly 1” to 2” long with finer material in between. It is made from either recycled wood such as old pallets or virgin wood. It tends to hold its color fairly well for a season and will be mostly faded after two seasons. A fresh annual cover keeps it looking bright. When it is dumped on the drive it may leave a stain so plan accordingly. Colors include: Brown, Black, Red & Gold.

Shredded Bark

Shredded Bark is a locally produced saw mill bark and is an econimcal soluiton for your mulching needs. Natural as it gets, varies in color due to the variety of woods used. Often used in veggie gardens where appearance takes 2nd place to weed control

Shredded Cedar

Cedar mulch is a medium-light brown mixture of cedar bark and cedar chips. The bark part of it is stringy or hairy and a darker brown, the wood portion is a lighter colored chip. The chips are mostly 1” to 2” long and 1/4” to 1/2” wide. It looks and smells really nice, especially when fresh. Cedar mulch keeps it color better than hardwood mulch or barkfines partially because it starts out lighter. It is very consistent in size and color since it is all from one tree species
