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.

Nice mulch but pricey when the wind blows it out of the flower bed.

    I just finished mulching around my raised garden beds, and I must say this product is great! It doesn't get blown around and my garden remains neat and tidy. Added bonus: My son loved watching the blocks expand!

    Greatest thing since sliced bread!

    Comments about : Mulch Block:

    I am using it in the cone stands I bought from you, my regular containers, my heavy pots, etc. everything that goes into a container has to be hauled up a longish steep hill. Throw them all in a wheelbarrow (also purchased from you) push them easily up the hill, keep in a large galvanized trash can, reconstitute in wheelbarrow as needed. Oh, and water less often. I mix with soil for some things! I am 65 years old and this means I can continue my garden hobby.

    Try this mulch block and you will buy it again!

    Comments about : Mulch Block:

    I put the mulch block into a large storage container and pour a gallon of water (at a time) on the block. I use a three prong rake to scratch the block then add more water and repeat, as well as turning the block over and scratching the damp side. I mix the coconut mulch and let it sit for a while so it can absorb more water. You want it wet to apply around your plants, trees and shrubs so it doesn't blow away in the wind. Once you have applied the wet mulch, it seems to stay in place well. It makes watering your plants easier because it helps hold water around the roots and keeps the root zone cooler. One block generally makes enough to fill four, 5-gallon buckets. If you recycle and reuse products, you will also appreciate how environmentally friendly and efficient this product is.

    Better than carrying heavy bags from home store

    By Reluctant gardener

    Comments about : Mulch Block:

    ... or using a wheelbarrow from a truck dump. The blocks weigh less, have a handle to carry. Place in the wheelbarrow, add water and watch it expand. The just grab a handful, squeeze out, and drop where needed.

    A little work to prepare before you can use it but it looks good and stays put.

    from St. Louis, MO

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Keeps in moisture between waterings
    • Stops weeds

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Mulching vegetable gardens

      Comments about : Mulch Block:

      This mulch has solved my vegetable garden dilemma - how to keep the soil from drying out too much between waterings. A big plus is how it stops weeds from growing. Less weeding = one happy gardener!

      I have used this product now going on 3 years, and it is great. Vertually no weeds and keeps plants moist as it retains water. Will buy this product as long as possible.

        Comments about : Mulch Block:

        I bought this product thinking it was a greener alternative to regular mulch, but it is from Indonesia (shipping that far is not green).Once spread out, the product looks very nice, however, it does not cover much ground. I bought 2 blocks just to try it out. I then bought 2 bags of mulch from my local gardening store. The bagged mulch covered 2 1/2 times more area than the block mulch. It also cost less than 1/3 of the block mulch.
