Mulch & Compost
By transforming organic waste wood and chips into beautiful, environmentally-friendly mulch, we strive to return nature to where it belongs: nature.
We've been producing premium mulch utilizing green recycling practices since the early 1990's. For a product that has as many variables as mulch, it's important to find a supplier you can depend on. At Almstead, we've built our business on being a trustworthy source: starting with the consistent quality of our product.

As a manufacturer, we also have an abundant supply of mulch readily available to our clients throughout the season. Aside from our naturally aged brown mulch, Almstead mulch comes in a variety of rich colors without sacrificing any of the quality of the original product. We use the highest quality pure organic dyes in order to ensure customer satisfaction in terms of durability as well as aesthetic enhancement.
Almstead’s services go beyond production to delivery as well as installation. We have you covered whether you’re a garden center needing to restock your supply, a landscaper wanting mulch delivered on site, or a business or homeowner looking for full service installation.
In addition to our standard premium mulch, Almstead manufactures playground mulch that is certified by the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA). We work hard to ensure that this mulch makes an excellent play surface and adheres to the high safety standards enforced by IPEMA through inspections and tests.
The science behind composting is both simple to follow and incredibly complex, with billions of microorganisms hard at work behind the scenes. The natural process of decomposition is as old as plants themselves, and it's practically unavoidable. The microorganisms responsible for breaking down organic materials into smaller and smaller particles are all around us. The act of composting is simply a streamlining of this process.
At Almstead, we build our compost piles in long rows that are shallow enough to allow water to percolate through, but deep enough to create the necessary amount of heat for hot composting. Each row of compost contains a pipe system that moves air into the center of the piles, ensuring that we are producing well aerated, healthy compost that will get the best results for plants in the landscape. The feedstock for Almstead compost is one hundred percent organic green and agricultural waste.
Benefits of Composting
When compost is incorporated into the soil, microbes continue consuming tiny bits of organic matter and releasing nutrients that plants can use. The improvement to soil structure, in combination with increased beneficial soil biology activity, lead to more sustainable landscapes that require less fertilizer and less irrigation to maintain healthy and strong plants.
