Need Bark?
We’ve got you covered

Applied Landscape Materials is Northern California’s premier bark supply and installation services company.

How does the mulch blowing service offered by Applied Landscape Materials stack up against other landscaping methods?

Advantages of Mulch Blowing

Save Time & Money. The traditional way of spreading mulch is both time and labor intensive. With our service being 5x times faster than traditional methods, combined with our volume purchasing advantage, we can offer the lowest price in the industry, using the highest-grade material.

Better Quality. Installing mulch by hand will result in uneven distribution and varying depths. With a blower system, the air flow produces an even distribution of mulch, increasing our ability to provide a smooth, consistent installation that is unobtainable by hand.

Flexibility. Our unique installation approach allows us to effortlessly install in hard-to-reach places like steep hills, long distances and yards that are inaccessible to wheelbarrows.

Accurate Placement. We install mulch in the exact location you need it without damaging your landscape due to heavy equipment and/or repeated trips with a wheelbarrow.

Benefits of Mulches

Mulch reduces the amount of water that evaporates from your soil.

Mulch gives your landscape a beautiful, finished appearance.

Mulching is an excellent form of natural weed prevention.

Mulch is a great way to ensure that your plants and flowerbeds receive the nutrients they need to stay healthy.

Mulch acts as an insulating layer on top of soil, keeping it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter!

When you keep your soil covered with mulch the wind and sun can’t directly reach the soil and cause damage.

Mulch is one of the most cost-effective means of controlling runoff and erosion.

Reduce Landfill Waste. Mulches are materials which would otherwise end up in the landfill.

Installation Overview

Our process begins with a confirmation call to our customers the day before their install. The more information you can give when placing the order, the better!

Prior to installing any bark on the day of the install, our onsite job lead will walk the job site with the customer to confirm what areas will be mulched. After confirming the installation areas with the customer, the team retrieves the hose from the truck and pulls the hose to the furthest distance from the truck.

We typically spray mulch from the furthest distance first and work our way back to the blower trailer.

To conclude, the crew will come back through with backpack blowers to clean-up any overspray back into the proper places. The lead will perform a quality control walk through before leaving.

There is never any dumping of material. No need for back-and-forth trips, causing damage to your soil, lawns and landscape.

With our process, we can spray 75 cubic yards per hour (compared to conventional methods where a two-man crew spreads roughly eight cubic yards per hour).
