Playmat, Double Processed Bulk Mulch - Delivery or Pickup


bulk mulch delivery lake countyMulch plays a vital role in landscaping, beautifying your yard and supporting your plants and soil. In its functional role, organic mulch covers the soil in your garden and around your trees with an insulating blanket, keeping roots warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Additionally, it helps the soil to retain moisture.

If you didn’t put that two-inch layer of landscaping mulch down across the soil in your garden, and around your trees, the soil on top would harden. Instead of draining into the soil, rainwater would runoff somewhere else.

Good, quality mulch also helps to control weeds that like to take root in your soil. And, finally, as it naturally decomposes, it leaks vital nutrients into the soil feeding your flowers, vegetables, shrubs and trees.

Aesthetically speaking, mulch is a worthy addition to your landscaping. A layer on top of your soil around the garden, shrubs and trees accents your landscaping. Based on the varieties of mulch, you have several choices of color to use to personalize the way you accent your landscaping. A word of caution: all mulch is not the same. When someone picks up a random bag of mulch that was stacked in front of a gas station, they really don’t know what they’re getting. Pre-bagged mulch can have mold where you really want a healthy, top-quality product to spread around your flowers, vegetables, shrubs and trees.

At Lester’s most of our organic mulch is 80-percent southern bark and 20-percent tree trimmings. As for the varieties of mulch we offer, the list below will help you make the best choice for your needs:

  • Premium Hardwood Bark Mulch – This mulch is a double processed bark mulch, which is finer in consistency. The chocolate brown color is one of our most popular mulches and is of the highest possible quality. In fact, it’s 98% wood free. A high bark content increases it’s nutritional value. It will also breakdown and decompose faster while retaining more moisture. Your soil, plants, and landscaping will love it!

  • Shredded Aged Hardwood Mulch – This triple processed fine mulch is a dark brown in color but fades to grey as it weathers. When it fades, that’s part of the process of decomposition. The change of nutrients are seeping into the soil. This is Lester’s second most popular mulch.

  • Brick Red Mulch – is a fine recycled option that is dyed red for a truly stunning color. As a tip, when the color seems to fade, get out the rake and mix it up a bit. The color comes right back.

  • Playmat Organic Mulch – conforms to ASTM standards established to keep children safe at play. In other words, this is the mulch you’ll want to spread across the soil around the swing set and in the playground. It’s designed so that it’s easy to move across, whether walking or pushing a stroller or wheelchair. It also has a good bounce factor. Thedeeper you install it the more it will soften the blows when a young one falls from a swing. Twelve-inches deep is not unheard of. It also drains well. In the case of thismulch, there’s no bark at all. It mattes well and drains well and generally comes in a golden to reddish brown with a mix of blondes. It even has a wonderful aroma that serves as a natural deterrent to most insects.
