Mulch

When can I water once I've spread the tinted mulch out?

For tinted mulches, don't water plants or beds for 72 hours after spreading or spread when rain is in the immediate forecast. Allow it to completely dry at least once.

What do I need to know about Hardwood Mulches?

Hardwood mulches will generate heat due to the microorganisms in the mulch. If your mulch is either hot to touch or has a distinct ammonia odor, you must let it air out and cool down. Do not place mulch directly against foliage, annual or perennial plants. Thoroughly water mulch immediately after application. Musselman Landscape Solutions, LLC. will not be responsible for plant damage due to misapplication of our product.

Is there a difference of coverage in the mulches?

Mulch coverages vary depending on the coarseness of the mulch, (i.e. Grade A will go lots further than grade AAA).

How thick should I spread the mulch?

Our recommendation is you apply the mulch 2 1/2" to 3" deep. Use the Mulch Application Chart on the right to help you determine how much mulch you will need.

What tools do I need to spread mulch?

Tools you might need: scoop or snow shovel, garden rake, pitchfork, wheelbarrow, broom, or blower, small whisk broom, small spade (to tidy up edges), tarp for the driveway, and don't forget your gloves and most important, your helper!
