Carry a Bushel of Coir Mulch in One Hand

  • Lightweight mulch block hydrates to 2 cu. ft. of mulch
  • Mulch helps suppress weeds and conserves soil moisture
  • 100% organic, biodegradable and renewable
  • One block covers 12 sq. ft. at a 2" depth; 8 sq. ft at a 3" depth
We’ve all been there: lugging heavy bags of mulch to the car, straining our backs and making a mess. These dehydrated coir mulch blocks weigh just 9 pounds and are delivered right to your door. Just add water and in 20 minutes, you’ll have 2 cubic feet of earth-friendly mulch. Made from coconut husks, coir has better water retention than bark, and reduces the temperature and moisture fluctuation by 50%. Keeps its rich color, too.

    Comments about Mulch Block:

    This compact mulch is great to use in the vegetable garden and it's easy to spread. The only drawback is that it takes a while to mix with water. I learned to leave it in my wheelbarrow (not metal) with water and let it soak for two/three days and then it's ready to spread. This is the second year I bought the product and like the results.

          I finish off my flower and vegetable garden plantings with coconut coir mulch. It deters weeds, helps retain moisture in the soil, and gives a professional finished look to the garden and yard.

            This is great to take to the community garden. Easy to transport then put in wheel barrel & add water to expand it. I have had several people ask me what it is , where to get it. The color lasts the entire season, keeps the weeds down & looks much better than other mulch I have seen. I also add that because GS is employee owned, the call center is extremely helpful and is in the US!!

              I have never seen a more beautiful natural color mulch before, it absorbs water, and delivers it gradally back to your plants instead of floating away in the rain like many mulches will do. I used it everywhere in my yard, planters, and walkways. I love it!

                The mulch block is so easy to hydrate, break up and spread. Because it is so light and compact you can store it anywhere until you are ready to use it.

                  Comments about Mulch Block:

                  We have a slope that leads to a retention pond. Over the years, the soil has eroded significantly. Am using it create less of a slope. It is an area a dump truck can not access, and I am not able to lift the normal mulch bags to accomplish this. I am adding plants inside handmade non-pressure treated wood boxes to hold the soil. I put this mulch around the boxes. It serves as an aid to assist in the decomposition of the "box" as well as keeping the plant in position until its roots become established and keeping the immediate area moist. It is working wonderfully! Every plant that I have used this "creation" for has not only lived, but thrived!

                  Wow! Love this product. Plan to use it for all future landscaping. Withstood torrential rain and hail and didn't wash away. No weeds yet either. Love the beautiful warm natural color. Reconstitute the block with garden fertilizer. Get the full benefit of green growth. Awesome!
