SWEET PEET
Available in bulk and bags!
  • NO chemicals & NO dyes
  • Very rich in nutrients
  • Has a high pH (alkaline)
  • Does not compete for nitrogen in the soil like regular mulches do to help it decompose
  • Weed seeds, mold and bacteria are killed off before the product is bagged
  • Reduces the need to use caustic chemicals (caustic chemicals are those that are harsh or corrosive; caustic literally means “burning”)
  • Available in 1.5 cu ft bags or by the cubic yard

Use as a Mulch

  • Has a rich dark color and natural texture. 
  • Has a high moisture retention value to help prevent erosion and reduce plant stress.
  • Different from other mulches because it contains NO construction or demolition debris (which can include ground-up nails, glass or plastic)
  • When spread at 3-4”, it will prevent compaction, retain moisture, suppress weeds and slowly release nutrients to the root system. 
  • The perfect mulch for flower and vegetable gardens because it naturalizes soil acidity
  • Will not form a “crust” or promote fungus growth and will completely decompose over the winter into rich black humus (worm food) to fortify your beds for the next season

    Use as a Soil Conditioner

    • Sweet Peet is fortified with farm manure and reduces nitrogen-borrowing when tilled-in around root zones of plants.
    • Will also retain moisture and provide nutrients.
    • Great for use in vegetable gardens!

    Use when Seeding

    • Apply a 1-2 inch layer on desired area, along with fertilizer and smooth evenly before seeding. After applying seed, top dress with a inch of Sweet Peet.

     Use on Roses

    • Sweet Peet has been highly recommended as a top dressing for roses to help retain water, keep the roots cool and inhibit weed growth that is so important when growing roses.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. How can I determine how much mulch I need?
    To determine amount of mulch you must first figure the square footage of the area.  Once you determine the square feet, multiply that by the depth of the mulch that you are planning to put down (we usually suggest 2-3").  So, if you have 100 sq. ft. and plan to apply 2", then the equation would look like this:
    100 * 2/12 = 16.666 cu. ft..  From here, you would need 8 bags of 2 cubic foot mulch or 6 bags of 3 cubic foot mulch.  If you plan to buy bulk mulch, divide cubic feet by 27.  For 16.666 cu. ft., you would need 1/2 cubic yard of bulk mulch.  See our mulch calculator

  2. Why don't you sell Cypress mulch?
    We at Dayton Nursery will no longer offer Cypress Mulch as young trees and great swaths of trees are being ground up into mulch for gardens and destroying Cypress ecosystems in the southeastern United States. Your help in this matter will preserve the Cypress forests of the Southeast.

  3. How do I know which mulch to chose?
    You should chose a mulch based on what you like best.  Some like the shredded look of our hardwood and Scott's mulches, whereas, others like chipped mulch such as Pine Bark.  Its best to use a lighter mulch, such as Pine Bark, in beds with annual flowers.
