from Townsend Lumber

Natural. Safe. Ontario made.

Townsend Lumber loves being a part of your exciting new DIY projects! That’s why we offer 100% locally sourced mulch straight from our sawmill. All of our mulch is made from raw materials, making it a fantastic option for gardens or other landscaping projects you currently have on the go.

And because our products come straight from our facility, you’re always sure to get the best price. For organizations or municipalities that require mulch that is up to code, we can provide the necessary FSC certification for every order.

Mulch Makes a Difference

  • Permanent beds only need to be refreshed/top dressed occasionally
  • 3-6″ layer of mulch is sufficient for gardens
  • Reducing mulch depth around plant stems reduces the chance of heat damage
  • Reduces moisture evaporation, helping to conserve water
  • Reduces splashing from rain or irrigation, thereby reducing spread of disease
  • Blocks germination of many weed seeds

Mulch Sold by Cubic Yard

  • 4″ deep = approx. 81 square feet per cubic yard
  • 3″ deep = approx. 108 square feet per cubic yard
  • 2″ deep = approx. 162 square feet per cubic yard
