    Hi all, I have a customer that wants me to put "compost type mulch, not from pine" "not acid mulch" I have no idea where to get it.
    I have been putting the regular hemlock bark mulch but now he said that he wants this specific type.
    He wants me to take away al the bark mulch he has and to replace it with this one.
    Any ideas where can I get it? please help!!!:help:

    I think he's talking about just regular wood chips- This is what alot of tree companies do and it is very good for the trees as it breaks down and all of the nutrients from the chips feed the surrounded tree.
    Removing all of the old mulch is a jobs that is harder than you think- as alot of it will have turned to dirt if it has been a long time.
