Types of Mulch

 

Mulch is very effective for weed control and moisture retention in your garden beds.

 

When spreading mulch, we recommend approximately 3” deep for best weed control. For ordering purposes, one yard of mulch will cover approximately 100 square feet at 3” deep.

 

We have the largest selection of mulch in the Niagara Peninsula with 14 different varieties ranging in price from $33.50 to $61.50* per cubic yard. Please call to inquire about delivery fee and options.
