What is Mulch?

Mulch is a material spread around or over a plant to enrich the soil and to cut down on weed growth.


Where is Mulch available?

Mulch is available for pick-up at Organic Resources, located at 4340 Trade Drive.


How is Mulch made?

Mulch is made through the process of grinding up decaying brush. Brush may consist of sticks, branches, logs and woodchips that have sat for over a year and are broken down. We place the material through a tub grinder to break it down into smaller pieces. Once through the tub grinder, we process the ground up material through a horizontal grinder with a two-inch screen to make it even smaller, woodchip size. The final process is to run the second grind of material through the screen machine to separate the broken down organic matter from the processed woodchips to get the final product.


When is Mulch available?

Mulch is typically available during April through October. Organic Resources strives to provide mulch through the year; however due to high demand, mulch may not be available. Mulch is not available from December to February due to snow.
