A Word About Mulch

Mulching is one of the best things you can do for your soil and plants. The proper mulch is a natural and organic way to encourage healthy growth of your plants. It also can help enrich the soil. A fresh layer of mulch will help prevent weeds. By mulching you can also moderate the temperature of your soil. In dry weather, it can help the soil retain moisture and reduce the need for watering. Mulch acts as an insulation barrier helping to protect against the extreme conditions of both the summer and winter. Mulching is very attractive and can add to the natural and beautiful look of any landscape. It comes in a variety of colors, types and textures.

How to Choose the Right Mulch

Choosing the right mulch greatly depends on what you are trying to accomplish. If your only goal is making your yard look attractive, you can simply choose the one you think looks best. If you want to have mulch around plants such as annuals and perennials then mulch with smaller pieces would work best. If you're unsure, just give us a call.

 Candler (West) Yard Closure

In our efforts to continue providing consistent quality and service we are looking to relocate the West yard in Candler. We will therefore be closing the current location at the end of August and will update the website as soon as new information becomes available.

We want you to know we can continue to service our customers from this area at any of our other three locations (Weaverville, Arden and Swannanoa) and any deliveries that would have originated from the Candler Yard will have the mileage based on that address.  Additionally, we will grant those affected by the location closure by giving a five percent (5%) additional discount when purchasing (yard pickup) material directly from our North (Weaverville) or South (Arden) yards. 

 Our apologies for this inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
