Description

  • 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.

Specifications

  • Each block weighs just 9 lbs, makes 2 cubic feet of mulch
  • Covers 12 sq. ft. at a 2" depth; 8 sq. ft at a 3" depth

      Comments about Mulch Block:

      I use this mulch around all my plants and under a weeping willow where nothing but weeds will grow.
      It is easy to transport around my yard,and quickly hydrates when water is added.
      This mulch looks as good as it ages as it does when new,so I just "top off" the beds that need it.
      I gave my daughter a block for her small veggie garden-now she wants to do all her beds!
      My only complaint is that I wish ther were a bigger discount for large orders.Obiviously,I am buying it at this price,but I would like to see a sale,or larger bulk discount.

            Needed an easy-to-use, good looking mulch for my 3 Sisters planting area in my front yard. This mulch gave me that and more! And my granddaughter had a great time helping me dip it out of the water tub to apply. Am buying more!

            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.
