Kettle Black Mulch, 2 Cubic Foot Bag
Kettle Black is an excellent option if you need to watch your dollars a bit as this is the least expensive dyed mulch but it is also the most texture. This is a great option if you want to landscape large beds that are at a distance. Similar textured mulches are Mocha Brown and Brick Red, these mulches are 100% wood products with no bark.
Kettle Black Mulch has some advantages that will improve your garden beds, while also enhancing the aesthetics of your landscape design. These advantages include:
- Allowing runoff of excess rainfall
- Controlling weeds
- Heat retention increased due to dyed mulch
- Moisture retention
- Slows plant decay
- Protecting crops from soil borne diseases
Along with these great flower and vegetable bed advantages, Kettle Black Shredded Mulch is an all-natural course textured mulch that is free of yard waste and manure. The mulch has a dark shade and retains that color well but does fade slightly due to the course texture. It also stays in place which helps landscaped areas stay neat and attractive year round.
How do I get my mulch?
We have different ways to get the mulch to its final place...your landscape beds! You can stop by our store anytime to purchase the mulch and we will load it for you, so no dirty work for you (yet). If you prefer, we can deliver it to your home so you do not need to pick up. Delivery charges vary and depend on where you live, but most areas we deliver to are $59.00 to $99.00. When you are in the shopping cart, you will be able to enter your zip code to get an exact quote. Finally, we can install the mulch for you! Simple fill out this on-line form below (labeled "FREE ESTIMATES"), select an appointment time, and we will be out there to provide an immediate on-site estimate for the work you would like completed! As a general rule, installation labor is approximately $75.00 per cubic yard plus the cost of the material...again just a ballpark so you know what to expect.
How much do I need?
This is the most common question we have and it is easy to figure out with our mulch calculator! Mulch is sold by volume (2 cubic foot bags, 3 cubic foot bags, or by the cubic yard) not by weight. If you provide input a little information to our calculator, we will provide you with how much mulch you will need for your project. Simply get the width and length of the areas that you will be applying the mulch and input the information in our mulch project calculator, then select your desired depth of mulch. The calculator will figure out how many bags or cubic yards you will need! Make sure you consider the existing plants in the area, you will not be applying mulch on top of them so minus some of the area out for that!
Each two cubic foot bag covers 6 square feet at 4" deep, 8 square feet at 3" deep, or 12 square feet at 2" deep.

Mulch Installation Instructions:
Add a generous thickness of mulch. The depth of mulch is really important if you want to retain moisture and prevent weed growth. Aim for at least two to four inches (5-10cm) of depth. With any color enhanced mulch (dyed mulch), it must cure or dry for a period of 24 hours after it is spread. Please check the weather forecast and apply dyed mulch when there is no rain in the forecast for 24 hours after you apply the mulch. If it rains or water is applied to the dyed mulch before this period, the dye/colorant will wash out.
