INFORMATION ON JOLLY GARDENER MULCHES

Desired Depth----------2 Cu. Ft. Bag Covers


2" Depth---------------------12 Square Feet

4" Depth----------------------6 Square Feet

How much mulch to buy for landscaping:

Measure your area to be covered and calculate the square footage. (Width, in feet, multiplied by length, in feet = Total Square Footage) 1. Decide on the depth of mulch that you wish to spread. Two inches will give your beds a clean, dressed appearance while conserving moisture. Four inches will keep your gardens looking tidy longer and help to suppress weed growth 2. Refer to the chart to determine the number of bags needed:

Of what is your mulch made, is it virgin wood?

All Jolly Gardener mulches originate from natural, virgin wood. Jolly Gardener mulches are not made from recycled construction materials.______

What is the difference between virgin wood and recycled construction materials?

Natural, or virgin wood, mulch is produced from a variety of trees, each having their own unique advantages. Our raw wood comes from land clearings and trees grown on professionally managed timber sites which follow state regulations and best management practices on both logging and sustainability. Other virgin wood product used is recycled timber from local lumber mills. This should not be confused with recycled construction material. Recycled construction materials include construction demolition. None of this material is used to produce Jolly Gardener mulches.______

Is colored mulch safe for my vegetable garden and around my children and pets?

All Jolly Gardener mulches, including colored mulches are made from virgin timber. The colorant we use in Jolly Gardener mulches is an all-natural, carbon based or iron oxide based colorant, which is safe to use in vegetable gardens and around children and pets. The following website will give you more information regarding colorants: www.mulchcolors.com. The company that manufactures colorant for Jolly Gardener mulches is Colorbiotics. Colorbiotics performs more extensive safety testing than any other colorant company in the U.S.A. The Mulch and Soil Council's subcommittee on Colorant Safety and Testing Protocol highly recommends that all colorant manufacturers use the same, extensive set of tests that Colorbiotics does routinely. ______

My dog ate the mulch I put down, should I take him/her to the vet?

Our mulches are made from virgin wood and the colorant we use in our colored mulches is an all-natural, carbon or iron oxide based colorant. While dogs are used to getting a little wood in their stomachs from regularly chewing up sticks, their systems are not made to process large amounts of it. If you believe your dog has eaten an abnormal amount of wood or mulch, call your local vet.______

Do you use pesticides or herbicides on your mulches?

Oldcastle Lawn & Garden does manufacture a number of products that are treated with pesticides and/or herbicides. These include Bella Vista Weed Block mulch which includes an herbicide, Term-A-Rid 613 Termite Killing Mulch which includes a pesticide, and Preen Mulch Plus which includes an herbicide. All of these products are labeled as including a pesticide or herbicide and list the active ingredient on the bag as required by the EPA.

Any Oldcastle Lawn & Garden product using an herbicide or pesticide will have correct bag labeling so this is clear to you as the user. No Jolly Gardener products currently use either an herbicide or pesticide.
