Mulch Delivery & Installation For Gardens And Landscapes
We specialize in delivering and spreading large amounts of mulch.
Mulch is an important part of maintaining a healthy landscape and giving it a uniform and well-cared for appearance. The installation and spreading of mulch in your garden beds provides many different benefits for your garden including keeping it free of weeds, it insulates your plants from the cold weather, and it also gives your garden beds a nice uniform appearance.
There are several different types of mulch that can be used on your property for different aesthetic and functional properties. Mulch helps to control weeds (when spread on top of landscape fabric), retains soil moisture and even acts as an insulating blanket for your soil during the fall and winter months.
Executive Lawn And Landscape is a local landscaping company based out of Mechanicsville and serving Hanover County, Virginia. We specialize in delivering and spreading mulch into our clients gardens beds whether it’s a residential or commercial property.
Minimum Mulch Delivery/Spreading = 4 Yards. Mulch is sold and delivered by the yard. 1 yard of mulch spread about an 1″ thick should cover approximately 324 square feet. We deliver approximately 4-5 yards of mulch in our dumping trailer and orders larger than that will need to be delivered with a dump truck. Our mulch installation estimates include delivery costs, spreading (approximately 1 hr per yard) and a clean up of the delivery area.
Preparation Of Garden Beds: Prior to spreading a new layer of mulch in your old garden beds they should be weeded and cleared out of any brush or debris. Landscape cloth can be laid down if necessary. Shrubs and surrounding tree cover should also be trimmed back to prevent the leaves and organic debris from falling in your garden. We are happy to add bed preparation and clean up into your estimate.
If you just want mulch delivered so you can install it on your own you should contact your nearest landscape supply company and inquire about mulch delivery.
Popular Types Of Mulch We Deliver & Spread
There are many different types of mulch we can install in your garden beds depending on your budget and what you are trying to accomplish.
Bark Nugget Mulch
Bark nuggets are popular to use within garden beds to help get a uniform look and they are also very popular for use in pathways and trail construction too. They have a very rough, course look to them and break down much slower than finer bark mulch materials.
Screened Bark Mulch
This is the bark mulch you usually see in gardens. It’s in abundant supply, it’s affordable, and there are often several sizes and colors of screened bark mulch available at any given time. A screen is used to separate the sizes from course to fine.
If you’re looking for a nutrient rich, dark mulch to use as a top dressing on gardens and landscaped beds then soil amender is an excellent choice. Soil amender can restore the nutrients in your soil and will encourage healthy plant growth and a deep root system capable of extracting all the nutrients out of the soil.
Wood Chips and Playground Mulch
Wood chips or playground chips as they are sometimes called are a great choice for areas that will see plenty of foot traffic. Playgrounds and pathways are both good examples for wood chips as the underlay because they don’t cause slivers and get stuck up in your shoes and socks like bark mulch can.

How Our Garden Mulch Delivery and Spreading Works
There is more to installing mulch then just spreading it out on the soil. You need to know about the types of mulch, their benefits and when they are appropriate to use. Installing mulch in your garden beds will help protect them, in addition to making them look great.
- We start with our initial consultation.
- We will listen to your requirements, making any necessary suggestions.
- We will work with you to determine the type of mulch you’d like spread.
- We will take accurate measurements to determine how many yards will be needed.
- We show up on the scheduled day of delivery and spread your mulch as promised.
- The end result is garden beds and landscaping with a clean, uniform appearance.
How Much Does Delivery and Spreading Mulch Cost?
The final cost of delivering and spreading mulch in your garden beds will be determined by the size of the garden beds and how much mulch we’re going to need to deliver and spread. The type of mulch you choose will also affect the price and lastly the most expensive portion is the labor to install and spread the mulch. This usually means hand loading and dumping wheelbarrows full of mulch and spreading it in your garden beds, especially in properties that have limited access, such as a backyard.
If we can dump the mulch close to your garden beds for minimal handling then we’re going to be able to complete your job faster. If we need to move the mulch with a wheelbarrow or a skid-steer over a longer distance (from the front to back of your home for example) then the cost of your labor will go up because we’re spending more time.
We’ll only be able to provide you with an accurate estimate for spreading mulch in your gardens after a thorough site inspection.
