New Design in Tree Ring Mulch Mats
We recently added a new style of Tree Ring Mulch mat of recycled tire rubber to our store Conservastore.com
The tree rings we currently sell are truly circular and measure in diameters of 20" up to 60"
Here's a link to our tree ring category on the Conservastore webstore site
Due to the request of some large international local governments who have many square planters, we asked the factory to make a more square tree mat with a circular cut out and they were kind enough to comply with our request.
We've all seen the square and rectangular raised beds in the middle of roadways and at large municipal event stadiums and theaters. It has often been hard for municipal landscape maintenance professionals to come up with a workable solution to maintaining these areas in a cost effective manner. With these square mats with a circular cut out cities can now fit the needs of a low cost but long lasting "do it and forget it" strategy to keep these planters looking nice but not requiring their crews to constantly return to these areas to lay loose mulch
But for the homeowner with a lot of trees these mats offer another addition to the suite of mulch mat products that Conservastore offers.
Specs on these new mats are as follows:
- 6 ft by 6 ft total size
- cutout in the center is 32" diameter BUT the hole size can be easily expanded with the use of a carpet knife or heavy shears
- the material which is largely recycled tire rubber is 1" thick
- We estimate the material should easily last 5 years with very little care required. The material will discolor with age but it should discolor uniformly if the sun hits it in an equal manner throughout the year.
- Currently available in brown or red
