New Leaf Mulch Provides Individuals, Contractors, and Manufacturers with a Premium, Natural Mulch That Improves Soil Health.

Freestate Farms has added a Leaf Mulch to its lineup of Grow Good products, making it easier for individuals and contractors to access locally produced and high-quality leaf mulch that protects a garden’s soil while making it healthier over time.

A leaf mulch is fast and easy to put on gardens because the material is light and easy to spread. Once it’s on the soil, it provides a beautiful dark color and the powerful benefits of an organic mulch. Not only does it help prevent weeds, retain moisture, and moderate soil temperature—the typical benefits of a mulch—but it also breaks down over the growing season to add nutrients to the soil below. This is a great way to have a beautiful garden, break up clay soil over time and, importantly, replenish the nutrients that plants need to grow.

“We are really excited for our leaf mulch,” says Rich Riedel, Freestate Farms’ Marketing Director. “A lot of landscapers swear by this product—it looks beautiful on gardens and helps improve the quality of our local clay soil. We saw a need in the marketplace and took our experience with natural mulch creations to another level to provide this new resource for the market.”

Freestate Farms sources the leaves from the various leaf collection programs across Northern Virginia, providing one of the cleanest and most reliable sources for leaf mulch. It’s available for sale in bulk at the Freestate Farms Balls Ford Road Compost Facility in Manassas, VA throughout the first quarter of 2023. Individuals can buy bulk leaf mulch for $19.99 per cubic yard; contractors and other businesses buy bulk leaf mulch for $14.99 (25% off the retail price), with opportunities for volume-based discounts.

“When a leaf falls in the forest, it protects the soil, like a mulch, and then feeds the soil as it breaks down over time,” says Riedel. “While a leaf would clog our street drains today, the underlying need for this natural process hasn’t changed. We’re proud that our leaf mulch will be a local, sustainable way that people can return nature to nature.”
