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.

  • 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
  • Made from coconut husks

      Comments about Mulch Block:

      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!!

        Comments about Mulch Block:

        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!

                The only problem with the coir mulch is the same problem that wood-chip and bark mulches cause in a garden: chlorosis. All of the plants in my gardens needed extra fertilizer while the mulch was still new. After it ages for at least a season, that problem goes away. But it could be a death knell for super delicate plants.

                  Comments about Mulch Block:

                  Have clay soil to deal with and part of our yard boarders a retention pond. Some years back not able to dig or deal with the slope to retention pond. Began making raised beds. My husband makes me "boxes". The plan has been and is to have the boxes disintegrate as the plants become established. Putting these around the boxes creates moisture that helps break down the boxes. By the time the plants are established, the boxes disintegrate leaving fantastic soil (mulch has broken down)leaving us with a larger area for roots to continue growing/spreading. This has been working for a number of years now. It is creating less of a slope to retention pond thus replacing soil that has washed away...leaving us with well established plants which help control the erosion. I realize this may not be the reason why others buy it, but it is working fantastically for us!
