Learn More About Mulch Blowing:
Why blow mulch instead of spreading it by hand?
Blowing the ground cover is a faster, more efficient, and more precise delivery system. We achieve a more uniform and even application, and there is very little waste. There are no unsightly piles to manually move from one location to another, and it is fast and efficient, which saves you time and money. It also makes it very easy to get to remote areas, and it doesn’t leave tire tracks in the yard that will require repair. It saves you time, money, effort, and you can create a better, cleaner landscape design.
What products and material can be blown in, and how far can the material be installed away from truck access?
We can apply soils, mulches, and composts very effectively. We can also apply top soil and gravel up to ¾ of an inch. The trucks are equipped with hoses up to 200 feet and additional hose is available at a fee. Our maximum hose length is 500 feet, which allows us to get over walls, fences, and other obstacles with ease.
Does mulch blowing do any damage to my existing landscape plants?
We make every attempt to protect existing plants and landscaping. Our highly trained technicians will assess every job and proceed with caution. If there are any existing plants in a position where damage is unavoidable, we will discuss this with you to determine the best way to handle it.
How dirty or loud is this mulch blowing process?
Since our products include mulch, topsoil and compost, there is an unavoidable element of dust and mess. However, we make every attempt to reduce this. Our trucks are equipped with a dust suppression system, and we carry portable blowers and brooms to clean up after delivery.
Can you reach remote parts of my property (up or down hills, over walls, inside courtyards etc)?
Remote areas pose no problem for us. Our trucks are equipped with 300 feet of hose in 30 foot lengths, which carry easily. We often move our truck to a more strategic location and re-pull hoses as necessary.
What do I have to do to be ready for Friendly Tree’s mulch blowing service?
For the most efficient delivery, it’s best for your flowerbeds to be relatively clean and edged. All animal deposits need to be removed prior to arrival, and your seasonal planting should be completed.
At what thickness can the mulch or other products and materials be blown into my VA Landscape?
We can apply from 1/4 of an inch to 5 inches thick or more, depending on job needs.
When can this type of Mulch blowing and top soil blowing service be scheduled?

What does mulch blowing service cost?
Generally the cost is $45 per yard for the installation plus the cost of the mulch or compost, topsoil etc. If the area of application is over 200 feet from the truck, there is a $175 fee for 100 feet of additional hose per 20 cubic yards loaded. Call for bulk pricing and discounts.
