Mulch Calculator

Green Your Garden
I'm almost done increasing the size of my front garden. During one of my rest breaks, I came in and did a quick internet search to find an online mulch calculator. Plenty of them showed up in my search, but I decided to share the one that I found on 1-800-Mulch-Pro, just because they have a lot of other great information about mulch on their website.

For instance, this is what their website says about the benefits of mulch:
What is Mulch used for?
  • Mulch prevents weeds from growing.
  • Mulch will maintain an even temperature in the soil. Warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
  • Mulch protects the soil from soil erosion.
  • Mulch will conserve moisture.
  • Mulch provides a clean surface for accessing the garden.
  • Mulch can make a garden look neat and finished.
They have some good photos of the different types of mulch and the mulch calculator page has some nice diagrams of how to measure your garden.

I've never purchased anything from mulch pro (and, in fact, I never heard of them before this morning's search). But their website looks like a great resource!

While writing this post, I realized that I forgot to add "Use Mulch" as one of the options in this month's survey about ways to conserve water. (Whoops!) But why not take a moment and answer the survey anyway! It's in the right hand column of this blog. I promise I'll add that option in future surveys.
