The best time to mulch entire beds or borders is in early spring. This will trap moisture from wet weather and ensure beds don’t dry out quickly in the heat of summer. Mulch reduces soil temperature as much as 10 degrees — enough to make a difference between supporting or killing tiny feeder roots near the surface.
We recommend using ROC as your base, then adding a ½ inch layer of either granite sand or masonry sand as a leveling device. This will make it easier to get the pavers to lie level. Once the pavers are in, sweep the remainder of your granite sand or masonry sand into the cracks to lock them in place.
We recommend using one of our granite rock products or if you really want to make your neighbors jealous, the mini slate chips. Either product will look great on the driveway or parking pad area. Spread it about 1.5 inches on top of an existing driveway for a fresh new look.
When switching to mulch you can do an easy conversion. Normally, 2 rolls of pine straw equal out to one yard of mulch. If you are unsure about how much to order please just call our office and our staff can help you figure out the right amount to order.
If you are looking to top dress your lawn, we recommend using the Daly organics. Its rich compost will help nutrify the soil and help green up your yard. If you have ruts or holes in your yard we also recommend utilizing some fill dirt. Our sandy fill dirt will pack nicely and allow grass to grow through it.
No, but we sell the materials (topsoil and compost) that you’ll want to put under your new sod!
You can measure the length and width of your beds, then enter those measurements into our online calculator with the depth of mulch (we recommend 3”) to determine the number of cubic yards that you’ll need. Please make sure that you enter each bed individually.
