Why use Mulch?
When mulch is applied we change the micro-climate around each plant. Mulch helps to conserve water and keeps the soil moist in many ways. Mulch reduces evaporation and holds water near where it falls, reducing runoff, so that it has time to soak into the soil.
Mulch also acts as physical barrier that reduces the impact of water droplets and slows down water movement to prevent soil erosion.
Soil fertility is increased as organic mulch breaks down and releases valuable nutrients. Beneficial microorganisms that improve soil health help mulch breakdown.
But for most homeowners the key benefit of mulching it that it reduces weeds. Weeds have a difficult time growing in areas with mulch. A thick layer will reduce weed germination by eliminating light from the surface.
Weeds that do grow will be have a hard time reaching the surface. And if they do poke their leaves above ground are easier to pull and remove.
In general plant health is improved because with mulching, any weeds will have a difficult time competing for water and nutrients.
How much mulch do you need?
Use our handy landscape material calculator below to figure how much mulch to purchase.
To calculate how much mulch you’ll actually need, just measure the area you want cover in feet (length and width) and then determine how deep you want the mulch to be in inches.
Just type in the numbers to get the exact amount! If you are not certain about how much you need feel free to call our office at (828) 734-8643 for a free quote.
Topsoil vs Compost vs Fill Dirt
Did you know that there is a fundamental difference between compost and topsoil? People often confuse them or think they are one and the same.
Compost is full of nutrients and is mixed into or added to the soil to feed your plants, flowers and shrubs.
Topsoil on the other hand is a layer of organic materials between the ground surface and the subsoil. It is literally the TOP layer of your garden or yard.
The next problem is the confusion between topsoil vs. fill dirt.
Topsoil and fill dirt can be great products to use on your property, but each have their individual uses.
Topsoil is a nutrient-rich material that is full of organic matter. Because of this, topsoil is a much better option for growing plants than fill dirt because plants can root, grow, and thrive in the more spacious material of topsoil.
Fill dirt on the other hand, is a natural material used to fill in holes or depressions in the ground or backfill for retaining walls or to create earth mounds that would change the elevation or grade of an existing area.

River Rock, Crush Stone & Gravel
Creek Stone (River Rock)
Creek Stone is a rounded, earth-toned type of river rock. It is good to use in gardens, planters and ponds to accent your landscape.
Creek stone offers a natural look for your landscape and it will help retain moisture in soil and help control erosion.
We offer it in two sizes: 1/2″-3/4″ and 6″-14″
Gravel & Stone
Road Bond – Gravel
Road bond is used as a base for driveways or anything that has to be compacted to a hard surface. Creek Stone, for example, is not appropriate for a driveway.
Washed Stone – Gravel
Around the house, Washed Stone can help create decorative walkways and replace organic mulch in flowerbeds and around trees and plants plus it can be used in drainage projects.
RipRap – Crushed Stone
Riprap is a type of crushed stone (baseball to basketball sized rock) that works well when used to stabilize slopes to prevent soil erosion, create drainage channels or used as a backfill for retaining walls.
