It’s Mulch Season

We’ve been installing a lot of mulch lately. On this particular job, we installed 20 yards of triple shredded hardwood mulch from Daniel’s in Fuquay-Varina (they grind it right there, and do a great job!,) as well as 160 bales of long leaf pine straw.

7:00 am – 15 yards of triple shredded hardwood arrives:

We applied it 4″ deep. It’s cheaper in the long run!

Mark’s nephew Will was regaling us with all the words he knows how to spell. He’s a smart little kid!

The day is over and these young men are ready to go home. They sure earned it today!

Mark is thrilled, and we are proud of another job well done.
