Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. How can I determine how much mulch I need?

    To determine amount of mulch you must first figure the square footage of the area.  Once you determine the square feet, multiply that by the depth of the mulch that you are planning to put down (we usually suggest 2-3″).So, if you have 100 sq. ft. and plan to apply 2″, then the equation would look like this:

    100 * 2/12 = 16.666 cu. ft.

    From here, you would need 8 bags of 2 cubic foot mulch or 6 bags of 3 cubic foot mulch.  If you plan to buy bulk mulch, divide cubic feet by 27.For 16.666 cu. ft., you would need 1/2 cubic yard of bulk mulch.

  2. Why don’t you sell Cypress mulch?

    We at Dayton Nursery will no longer offer Cypress Mulch as young trees and great swaths of trees are being ground up into mulch for gardens and destroying Cypress ecosystems in the southeastern United States. Your help in this matter will preserve the Cypress forests of the Southeast.

  3. How do I know which mulch to chose?

    You should chose a mulch based on what you like best.  Some like the shredded look of our hardwood and Scott’s mulches, whereas, others like chipped mulch such as Pine Bark.  Its best to use a lighter mulch, such as Pine Bark, in beds with annual flowers.
