Fresh Mulch for Your Garden
If you dream of relaxing with your morning coffee, flanked by mature bushes, trees, and thriving flowers, we at Legends Landscape Supply can’t stress enough the importance of investing in high-quality mulch products.
Let your Garden Thrive
Mulch is used for 5 main reasons:
- To suppress weeds
- To add nutrients to the soil
- To maintain moisture content for plant material in drought conditions
- To protect against erosion
- To insulate against temperature changes
Hold Down the Fort
All of our options are heavy and compactable enough to resist wind erosion, but sturdy enough to break up rain droplets and prevent soil crusting. Many types of mulch are created by chopping up old skids, but ours are au naturale and nail free!
Black Dyed Cedar Mulch is double shredded cedar mulch that is died black. It is a natural product that holds the black die longer than other hardwood black mulches. Hardwood often can fade to light grey by the end of one season. Black cedar can be fluffed up with a rake and will hold colour much longer than hardwood.
Cedar Mulch is double shredded to create a uniform product that resists moving after installation. It resists insect and weed infestation when installed deep enough.
Our Pine Bark Mulch is a special mixture of bark from this year and last year's product. It is a dark brown, nutrient dense material. It has been slightly decomposed, giving it the rich dark colour and instant nourishment for your plant material. It is also a very reasonably priced product, because Legends buy a lot of this mulch in bulk.
Place summer mulch mid-spring. It helps retain moisture, but too much moisture can be a bad thing. Let the snow melt away completely before laying it.
Plants should be rooted in soil for best results. Annuals can be planted in mulch but will require more watering. Perennials, shrubs and trees need to be planted in quality soil or triple mix. Any plant should be planted in 80% soil and no more than 20% mulch.
