Spring bed mulching

When having mulch delivered for your beds this spring, choose a quality mulch from a quality manufacturer or delivery service. Inspect the load before it is dumped. Never accept mulch with trash or nails mixed in.  Know the amount needed as to not be short or have to much left over. Make sure the truck delivering the mulch contains the correct amount ordered. If you dont know the amount needed use our handy mulch calculator to figure it out. When applying only apply about 2-2.5″ and never pile mulch up againt tree trunks or the base of shrubs, feather in these areas. Always apply a quality pre-emergent to all beds prior to mulching to help control weeds. Good luck and have fun being outdoors this spring!

    This was a very helpful post. Most of the sites I went to had no infomation in regaurds to mulching. The mulch calculater was helpful and self explanatory and your Facebook page was full of other useful information and photos. I filled out the request form and placed my order for mulch. Very happy with my decision.

      Thanks Trish, after we made your delivery and talked for a few minutes I have no doubt you will have great success. Thanks for visiting Alpine Gardens Langhorne on Facebook and leaving the great review.
