What’s the price?

  • Mulch is sold by volume
  • $15 for approximately one cubic yard, loaded loose into the back of your truck
  • $3 for a 19" X 30" bag. Bags are not pre-filled. Bags will be provided by the scalehouse staff for residents to fill. Shovels are available for residents to use.
  • Please note, as there is a limited quantity available, sales of mulch are limited to 4 cubic yards per household for the season.

Why should I use mulch?

  • It suppresses weeds
  • It prevents soil erosion and compaction
  • It controls soil temperature
  • It enhances water infiltration and retention
  • It improves soil structure

How do I use mulch?

Mulch is great for:

  • Mature tree and shrub beds
    Spread to depth of 10 – 20 cm, tapering to nothing as you get close to the trunk of the tree or base of the shrub.
  • Established flower gardens
    Spread to a depth of 10 – 15 cm.
  • Pathways
    Spread to a depth of 10 – 15 cm.

This mulch should not be used with plant seedlings. Mulch created from evergreen branches is acidic, and this can damage plant seedlings.
