As a homeowner when it comes to buying mulch it’s up to you to decide what is more important to you — price or convenience. At Seaside Mulch we like to give you lots of choices, not just in the types of mulch we carry but additionally in the size and quantities available to purchase. You will save money by purchasing your mulch in bulk but many homeowners find the convenience of bags well worth the nominal additional cost. There are advantages and disadvantages to purchasing bulk and bagged mulch in South Carolina.
If you’re ordering just enough bulk mulch for your property and you have the time and initiative to get it spread in a timely manner then this is the way to go if you want to save money. It’s not easy work by any means but anyone in relatively good shape that owns a shovel and a wheelbarrow or tarp should be able to handle the project. Try to have your mulch delivered when rain isn’t forecasted or you’ll be shoveling much heavier mulch than you need to. While it’s beneficial to have your gardens well-watered (or rained on) prior to applying mulch, you don’t want to have to shovel wet mulch if you can avoid it. Once delivered, if you’re unable to get it all spread in the same day, secure a tarp over the top to prevent rain or dew to accumulate in or on the pile.
When you purchase bagged mulch you pay a little more but you have the convenience of dealing with one bag at a time. If you don’t have many gardens or those you have are small and require little mulch, this is definitely the way to go. If you like the idea of always having bagged mulch on hand then purchase extra if you have a place to store it like a garage or garden shed. Then you can use it on a bag-by-bag basis. You’re still able to load wheelbarrows with it and wheel those to your gardens. It’s just overall a neater, cleaner way to store compost, one that many prefer. Bagged mulch is ideal for those that live in apartment buildings or condos, people who are strictly into container gardens and window boxes, and those with limited abilities to move larger quantities of mulch.
So the choice is yours whether you purchase your mulch in large or small quantities of bagged mulch or choose to buy mulch in bulk quantities. In either case, we’re happy to deliver it right to your home. Give us a call at 910-791-2100 and we’ll schedule your delivery.
