Delivery

Can I give specific dumping instructions?

Yes, use a landmark to tell us where you want your mulch unloaded- i.e., by basketball goal, close to mailbox, adjacent to sidewalk, etc. or better yet, set out a bucket.

How much room will the mulch take up when unloaded in my drive?

The base of the unloaded pile of mulch will be approximately 12 feet wide and will cover more than half of the width of your driveway.

How much room does the delivery truck need to be able to make the mulch delivery?

We need approximately 10 feet width clearance and 9 feet height clearance for a driving area and about 13 feet height clearance to raise our dump beds. Take note of utility wires, trees, and other obstacles before deciding where you want your mulch unloaded. You will be asked to sign a waiver of responsibility form if you ask us to drive across your lawn to unload mulch or soils. We don't want to create ruts in your lawn or do any damage to your property.

When should I order my mulch?

If you are taking the day off to spend in the yard, tell us when you place your order so that we may accommodate you. It is best to have your products delivered the day before as we cannot guarantee a specific delivery time.

Do you have discounted delivery days?

Yes. We discount our deliveries by 40% on Mondays and Tuesdays through June 30. Our Monday and Tuesday deliveries are at capacity every week, so take full advantage of our discounted delivery charge by placing your order well in advance. (To get the discounted delivery charge you must live in the qualified area.) This discount cannot be combined with any other discount (i.e. $3 off per yard of mulch). Also, if you would like to use a mulch discount coupon you must place the order over the phone and not online. Discounted delivery will work online but discount coupons will not.

Can I change my order after I have placed it online?

Changes can be made to your order over the phone after you have placed it online. However, processing and/or cancellation fees will apply.

Mulch

When can I water once I've spread dyed mulch out?

For dyed mulches, don't water plants or beds for 72 hours after spreading or spread when rain is in the immediate forecast. Allow your mulch 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.

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!

Helpful Hints

Can you dump on the street or lawn?

You will be asked to sign a "Waiver of responsibility" form if you ask us to drive across your lawn or to dump in the street. We do not want to create ruts in your lawn or do any damage to your property. Many cities will fine you for having your dumped on the street so we strongly advise against street dumping.

Do you have enough room in your driveway?

Remember the base of the unloaded pile of mulch will be approximately 12 feet wide and will cover more than half the width of your driveway. Also, you should be aware the dump truck may reach higher than a basketball goal or up into the trees. This can potentially cause broken tree branches.

Can our trucks fit where you need them to go?

We need approximately 10 feet width clearance and 9 feet height clearance for a driving area and about 13 feet height clearance to raise our dump beds. Take note of utility wires, trees, and other obstacles before deciding where you want your mulch unloaded.

Are we able to drive on your lawn to dump at a requested location?

You will be asked to sign a "WAIVER OF RESPONSIBILITY" form if you ask us to drive across your lawn to unload. We don't want to create ruts in your lawn or do any damage to your property!

Can you request a specific delivery time?

Will the color of your dyed mulch wash out in rain?

For dyed mulches, please don't water plants or beds for 24-48 hours after spreading. Also do not spread when rain is in the immediate forecast. Allow your dyed mulch to completely dry at least one time. Optimum drying time is 72 hours.

Is your mulch too hot?

Hardwood mulches will naturally 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 before applying it to your beds. Be careful not to place mulch directly against foliage, annual or perennial plants when it is hot as this may damage the plants. We recommend that you thoroughly water your mulch immediately after application. MUSSELMAN LANDSCAPE SOULUTIONS, LLC. WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PLANT DAMAGE DUE TO MISAPPLICATION OF OUR PRODUCTS.

What will you need for spreading mulch?

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

How much mulch do you need?

Mulch coverages vary depending on the coarseness of the mulch, (i.e. Grade A will go much further than Grade AAA), but a good rule of thumb for measuring is that 1 cubic yard will cover: 140 sq feet (10x14 area) at 2" deep, 105 sq feet at 3" deep and 70 sq feet at 4" deep. Our recommendation is you apply the mulch 2 1/2" to 3" deep.
