about our mulch


Mulching has many benefits in flower gardens, vegetable plots, shrub beds and around landscape trees. A thick layer of mulch prevents weeds from growing by smothering the seedlings. Mulch regulates soil temperature, keeping the ground cool in summer and warm in winter. In dry seasons and climates, mulch slows the evaporation of moisture from the soil.Mulch is also used to improve the aesthetics of garden or landscaped areas and the space around trees, specimen plants, and shrubs.

Barretta's colored mulches are put through a triple dye process which is why they last more than one season. We will not reference competitors because it is our belief that we have none in New Haven and Fairfield counties with the level of quality of our TRIPLE dyed mulch. Bottom line, we use pine and oak hardwoods avoiding wood pallets and other false wood material and an increased dying process to give it more color and longevity of product produced; the appearance is dark and rich in color and lasting. You can visit one of sites to see the mulch samples live or we can mail you samples. This mulch is dyed and the dye used is water based as well as completely safe.

Colored-mulches hold their color throughout the year, and often into the next year, with minimal color loss. This provides better value to the landscaping client. Shredded mulch is loaded into a hopper on a large, trailer mounted, mulch dyeing machine. Liquid colorant from 55-gallon drums was mixed with water and sprayed on the mulch as it passed through the machine. The colored mulch then travels up a conveyor belt to a stockpile

hemlock

Hemlock mulch is a natural wood mulch that is derived from finely shredded hemlock wood, bark, and branches. The natural red and orange tones in the wood are enhanced during the drying and aging process. The orange, red, and burgundy tones of hemlock mulch add rich color to landscape beds and garden areas. While some forms of hemlock plants are poisonous,hemlock mulch is not, because it is derived from a non-poisonous tree that is uses the hemlock name.
