MULCH.

Utility Mulch

Our most economical mulch, consisting of a blend of hardwood and softwood bark species with some fine wood nuggets. Utility mulch is processed and ground to a fibrous, medium texture and is dark brown in colour. With time, it ages to a greyish colour, and requires yearly replenishing. This mulch adds organic matter to soil through decomposition, maintains soil moisture, and suppresses weed growth.

Primary Uses: Ideal for commercial projects, matting for open natural areas, street tree planting projects, and pathways for forested areas. This mulch will help improve soil quality, and reduce property maintenance hours.

Black Wood Mulch

Fine- to medium-textured hardwood blend of mulch dyed with naturally-occurring black pigment. This long-lasting colourant is environmentally friendly, efficiently absorbed by the wood, is UV stable, and does not readily "wash" away. Black Wood Mulch decomposes slowly and wears well. This mulch slowly adds organic matter to soil through decomposition, maintains soil moisture, and suppresses weed growth. Naturally-dyed "Red" Wood Mulch and "Brown" Wood Mulch are also available

Primary Uses: Ideal for aesthetically enhancing and accenting landscape features; helping to improve soil quality, and reducing property maintenance hours.

Shredded Pine Bark Mulch

A freshly-ground blend of pine species. This mulch is aromatic, and has a natural reddish-brown colour. It has a finely-shredded uniform texture and knits together very well. Over time, through decomposition and decay, this mulch will age to a black colour and enrich the underlying soil by decreasing the pH (decomposed pine bark is acidic), thereby improving its fertility (more nutrients available for plant uptake), and increasing the organic matter content.

Primary Uses: This mulch is frequently specified in construction documents, and recommended by landscape architects. Conditions soil and reduces property maintenance.

Classic Cedar Mulch

This mulch is produced from freshly-ground white cedar bark, has a fine-to-medium fibrous texture, and knits together very well. It has a distinctive natural cedar aroma, and natural golden brown colour. This mulch weathers well, and is slow to decompose.


Using environmentally friendly, natural colourants, this mulch is also available in 5 different colours - Natural Red, Bright Red, Black, Brown and Gold. These pigments are environmentally friendly, absorb efficiently into the wood, are UV stable, and do not readily "wash" away.

Primary Uses: This mulch is frequently specified in construction documents, and recommended by landscape architects. Through the use of colour, these mulches are aesthetically enhanced to naturally accent landscapes.
