Mulch & Compost

Kolze's carries Purple Cow Organic compost. The Purple Cow Organics company has derived an organic microbial technique to their composts that result in bigger and better yields. To learn more, click on the link provided.




What makes Kolze's Premium Bark Mulch better than other hardwood mulches is the high percent of Bark that is processed into the mix, not how many times it has been processed.  A high quantity of bark is desirable in a mulch because it doesn’t breakdown quickly, and the shredded bark doesn’t compete for nitrogen or moisture with the soil.

1 cubic yd will cover

162 Sq Ft = 2" thick

108 Sq Ft = 3" thick

54 Sq Ft  = 6" thick


Idea: Make a list of the dimensions of the areas you want to cover to find the total square footage you want to cover.




               Area 1 - 10'x10' cover 2" thick = 100 sq ft

               Area 2 - 8'x8' cover 2" thick = 64 sq ft


               Total square footage = 164 sq ft
