Native Hardwood Mulch is the most economically friendly mulch available to the discerning Landscape Architect. Native Hardwood Mulch is a byproduct of recycling whole hardwood trees, logs and branches from various sources into an attractive mulch product that returns the material back to the earth as it decomposes. The trees are derived from necessary urban processes such as utility line trimmings, commercial tree trimming and landscape construction. Companies producing this material are looking for environmentally friendly ways of disposing of green waste so they bring it to Living Earth. The trees and branches are ground twice and aged to produce a fine yet fibrous mulch, varying in particle sizes from composted fines though 4” in length. The fact that all parts of the tree are ground ensures that leaves, bark, cambium, and heartwood of the tree produce the most nutrient rich and diverse natural mulch on the market.
Although not sold as compost, Native Hardwood Mulch definitely has a compost component by its very nature, thus enriches the planting with its finer particles. The fibrous interlocking nature of Native Hardwood Mulch makes it an excellent choice for use on all planting areas to conserve water, suppress weeds, moderate soil temperatures, and add valuable nutrients as it decomposes. The mulch holds in place and will not wash, making it superior for use on sloped areas. This mulch product is an easy favorite for specification on LEED projects.
