KARBON® Leaf Mulch
What is KARBON® Leaf Mulch?
Karbon® Leaf Mulch is the registered trademark name we use to identify our mulch.
While leaf mulch has been used for many years by professional landscapers and gardeners it is now coming into its own as a mulch with many merits.
Much of the product on the wholesale market today is manufactured from brush and clearing debris, while initially having a good appearance can lose color in the heat of the summer. Coarser wood mulch also takes a long time to break down leaving you with the added cost of removing some or all of it in the spring.
Karbon® Leaf Mulch consists of nothing but leaves which are ground up and then through a natural process, heated to 140 degrees or more to kill any dormant weed seeds. Water is added to activate the tannins and accelerate the darkening process. The leaves are then screened to achieve a consistent ½” minus product.
