Tools You Will Need to Grow Your Garden

Hey! My name is Peter and this is my garden supply blog. I spent many years working in Sydney as a human rights lawyer. I loved my job but it didn't leave me very much time to pursue my hobbies. Since I retired, I have been spending more time in my garden. I have always loved plants and flowers so it was a real joy to get out there. However, I realised that I didn't have any of the tools I needed to get my garden into shape. Thankfully, my brother-in-law works at a garden supply centre so he was able to give me some great advice.

Common Mistakes Homeowners Should Avoid with Mulch Delivery

Mulch delivery services have made landscaping easy for property owners. You only need to place an order, make payment, issue delivery instructions and wait. However, you only enjoy the convenience by avoiding common mistakes related to delivery. This post highlights the common mistakes that property owners should avoid regarding mulch delivery services.

Failure to Confirm Availability on Delivery Day -- When you place an order for mulch to be delivered in two days, there is no guarantee you will be around on that particular day. It is especially the case if you are the busy type. However, you should not expect delivery services to drop off mulch in your absence. If you do not inform a delivery crew of your absence, you risk wasting their time. In such cases, a delivery crew might be forced to return mulch since they cannot offload it on your driveway. In this regard, property owners must communicate their absence on the delivery day. Most importantly, it helps a delivery crew to adjust their itinerary accordingly and save unnecessary expenses. If you will be away but still want mulch delivered, instruct a delivery crew on how and where to offload the product. The confirmation saves time, resources and frustrations for all parties involved.

Failure to Confirm Mulch Product -- Mulch supply services require patience and resilience from a delivery crew since they make several deliveries to different clients throughout the city, all day. Mulch products come in different colours and materials, some of which look the same. For instance, red rubber mulch resembles redwood nuggets mulch. Thus, if you want to be sure your order is correct, you should make it a habit of confirming mulch deliveries.

Dumping Mulch in One Area – When a mulch delivery crew arrives at your residence, you should instruct them where to offload the product. Notably, it takes some planning, something many property owners do not do. If you don't give the service specific instructions of where you'd like the mulch, it increases the likelihood of them placing it all in one area. Unfortunately, ferrying bucket loads of mulch from one part of the lawn to another is hard work considering the back-and-forth trips. The best approach is to sectionalise and mark a lawn based on how much mulch each section needs. Afterwards, you can request a delivery crew to dump the mulch in the different areas. It saves time and effort on your part. Besides, delivery services are always willing to assist.
