—Ernest Hemingway

Nature is your business. You work hard creating beautiful, thriving landscapes. And, in today’s environmentally conscious world, it makes sense to be as green as possible. Reducing toxic chemical applications and planting native species are great ways to do your part. But, there’s more!! Look for mulch made from recycled wood pallets.

You know organic mulch is a must in your customers’ gardens. Here’s why using organic RECYCLED wood mulch is a win-win-win for you, your customers, and the environment.

It’s Eco-Friendly

How often do you get to save trees and landfill space? The recycling movement is hotter than ever, and wood products have come a long way in being removed from the waste stream. According to two surveys done by researchers at Virginia Tech and the USDA Forest Service, 95% of wood pallets are now recovered and recycled. This is a huge increase in the rate of recycling and is estimated to save 43.5 million trees a year.

Clean pallets ground into premium mulch products that actually benefit the landscape is the perfect solution to what would be a rather enormous pile of refuse. Definitely a win for the environment!

It’s Good for the Garden

Organic wood mulch is the ultimate environmentally friendly gardening tool. Mulch works to:

  1. Eliminate weed growth
  2. Reduce moisture loss through evaporation
  3. Control erosion
  4. Insulate soil and plant roots from sun and frost damage
  5. Decompose and add organic nutrients to the soil
  6. Provide a finished, uniform look to landscapes

Mulch made from recycled wood pallets has the added benefit of not containing seedlings that could germinate in the garden. In addition, it has been reported that this mulch tends to become alkaline in nature as it undergoes decomposition. The alkalinity benefits plants in many ways creating an optimal environment for healthy plant growth.

It’s Good Business

Most consumers are becoming more and more environmentally conscious. Customers will appreciate your use of recycled products and that can be a great way to set your business apart from other landscape companies. It can also reduce your costs, making your business even more competitive.
