A fellow volunteer firefighter works at a tree service. I asked him what he did with all of that mulch from the tree trimmings and it turns out that they have to PAY to dump it! Well you know what I asked next! Once his boss signed off, I had a heaping, steaming pile of mulch sitting in my driveway the very next morning! For FREE!
Google “tree Trimmers” in your area and call these companies up! See if they’ll bring a load to you! I’m told winter mulch is better since it doesn’t have leaves in it. I guess it depends on what you’re doing with it!
Uses for FREE mulch:
To cover trails and paths
Around plants, trees and shrubs
Around the house, rain collection system and septic system
Under the picnic table
So as you can see, this stuff really goes a long way. I still have half of the pile sitting in the driveway so I’ll be adding to the compost pile and the garden I believe.
When you buy it in the bags it doesn’t seem to go that far, hmmmm…
Added mulch to the greenhouse before putting the plastic on
