  1. As the woodchips and mulch age, soil structure is improved and nutrients are added to the existing soil. CMCMUA wood chips and mulch will inhibit the growth of weeds, retain soil moisture, and keep the soil cooler thereby creating a happy place for your plants.
  2. Once dry, the dyes are on the wood chips permanently. CMCMUA wood chips will typically maintain their color for more than a year.

FAQ: How much material do I need?

  1. Find a tape measure and calculator.
  2. Determine the square foot measurement of the area.  If you have a planting bed that measures 4 feet wide and 25 feet long, the area is 100 square feet. (4 x 25 = 100)
  3. For a material depth of 3 inches (or 0.25 feet), multiply 0.25 feet by 100 square feet to get 25 cubic feet. (0.25 x 100 = 25)
  4. One cubic yard is 27 cubic feet.  The CMCMUA sells landscaping products in cubic yard increments so you would need to buy 1 cubic yard of material to place a 3 inch layer of material on a 25 foot by 4 foot planting bed.
