Mulching woodland garden area
Last week, the staff spread the chipped mulch in the 9 woodland garden area. We had placed it there a couple of weeks before, expecting some potentially heavy rain days but did not receive the expected rains, at least when the staff was on the clock. This product was chipped from all oak trees that were either pruned or removed this past year. It is a free product and saves us a significant amount of money each season. It has good color and will hold it color long into the season since it is all oak.
