Backyard garden -New Castle Co.

Asked June 15, 2020, 12:14 PM EDT

I would like to prepare a natural backyard garden area using a fine quality mulch with the organic matter intact(leaves, stems, etc) Are there any local recycling programs where I may acquire something like this or are there known recommendations for a supplier? Thank you.

Good Morning, Sounds like a great project! If you're a resident of Newark you can pick up leaf mold (the city composts the leaves they collect from residents and it's a nice product) at the base of the water tower on Route 896 https://newarkde.gov/218/Yard-Waste-and-Mulch-Information . Suppliers like Holland and Copeland and others in the area also sell variations of compost.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any additional questions with a reply or you can email me directly.
