When the weather warms up, area garden and landscape centers begin answering a barrage of phone calls from area residents wanting to purchase mulch.
Applying mulch is considered one the easiest ways to spruce up the area around the home. With numerous varieties of bagged or loose product, it’s easy to make choices to enhance the landscape.
“After all the snow and the wetness this winter, people are ready to get outside and play in the dirt,” said Steve Matish, manager of Jamestown Feed &Seed on Richmond Road in Norge. He began fielding calls last week. “It depends on the weather, but when it starts to warm up, we sell lots of mulch.”
