WM EarthCare provides two mulch product lines: premium and standard to meet the demands of our customers and help find new uses for discarded wood materials. Mulch sustains soil by retaining moisture, moderating soil temperature, preventing erosion, deterring weeds and reducing compaction. Mulch should be applied annually to compensate for settlement and to brighten color aesthetics. The recommended application is 3– 4 in depth.
Premium Mulch is made from 100% recycled, clean, untreated lumber recovered and processed at our facilities in Alameda County. WM EarthCare™ Mulch does not contain wood stumps or branches, eliminating the risk of Sudden Oak Death or Brown Apple Moth disease. Coarsely ground to 2, screened and dyed with naturally occurring colorants, our mulch is safe for children and animals and is guaranteed to retain its color for one year. Premium Mulch is available as Monterey Dune, Golden State Red, California Gold, Mt. Diablo Black, Muir Woods Brown and Mission Mahogony.
Monterey Dune Natural Mulch
WM EarthCare™ Monterey Dune Natural Mulch reflects sunlight to protect against summer heat and reduces water consumption. This summertime favorite fades from yellow to gray, producing a natural aesthetic.
California Gold Mulch
WM EarthCare™ California Gold Mulch adds a rich golden color that doesn’t fade to grey like uncolored wood. Its pigment also reflects the sun’s rays, helping to retain the soil’s moisture during the warm summer months.
Golden Gate Red Mulch
WM EarthCare™ Golden Gate Red Mulch stimulates vegetation by reflecting a favorable light wavelength associated with plant growth. The brilliant red adds both aesthetic and practical benefits to your garden.
Mission Mahagony Mulch
Creating the appearance of redwood bark, the evenly applied natural Amerimulch™ dye is colorfast and resistant to the weathered gray look associated with natural redwood. It will produce a stunning contrast in any landscape.
Mt. Diablo Black Mulch
WM EarthCare™ Mt. Diablo Black Mulch captures the sun’s warmth to raise soil temperature by as much as ten degrees. Applied during the fall, it protects sensitive plants in winter and provides an elegant aesthetic year round.
Muir Woods Brown Mulch
WM EarthCare™ Muir Woods Brown Mulch evokes the essence of a forest floor with its rich brown color. This year-round mulch contributes to the health and beauty of your garden.
Sonoma Trails Mulch
Sonoma Trails Mulch is an economic, environmental substitute to expensive virgin landscape barks. It is made from clean construction wood and particleboard sourced from Sonoma County. Landscapers use it on pathways and hillsides to suppress weeds, conserve moisture and reduce mud and erosion. Use of recycled materials (no painted or treated woods allowed) may result in small pieces of plastic and other trash. Nails are removed by magnet during the grinding process. Apply appropriately.
Available for $14 a cubic yard at our Redwood Landfill , Novato, CA.
