This solution is unique to Conserv-A-Store –you can MAKE your OWN TREE RING
Heavy Weave Tree Ring mulch mats relieve the homeowner or landscaper of needing to worry about mulch blowing away in the wind or washing away with the rain.
Say you have a large oak or pine that is up to 4 ft diameter. Most tree rings will not cover the area around the tree since it is too large. You’ve tried loose wood mulch and it falls apart during heavy rains, you’ve tried rock and it works pretty well but is hard to blow off with a blower.
Pouring you own rubber mulch protective ring will be the permanent solution we assure you.
With this product you get the bags of rubber and the binder and are able to pour the size and thickness that you desire. You get 4ea 50# bags of rubber and 1ea 5 gal binder(Multiple lots available of course!!) for the $295.95 price. Mix these ingredients in a wheelbarrow at the site of the pour and you can fashion any size and thickness of tree ring you wish

Pour in Place Mulch for residential use is not as difficult as it sounds. When using our Pour In Place Mulch to create Tree Rings and or Undefined areas the job can be done in a day. The drying time is 24-72 hours depending on heat and humidity but can dry quicker. For larger jobs these directions are similar but you will need a mixer. Here’s what you’ll need and how to do it:
4 Bags of Rubber Mulch with every 1 pal of binder
Water and Soap
Bucket, Duck Tape
Plastic tarp or plastic bag big enough to cover wheelbarrow
Goggle, mask, gloves up to elbows, clothes that can be thrown away, and apron if preferred.
First clear the landscape to which you want to cover with the mulch. Dig up any loose terrain and weeds. Clear the area with a shovel, hoe, and rake to level the terrain. Make sure to mark the area you want covered so it can be even to your preference.
To prevent weeds and better irrigation, cut and fit to the area landscaping fabric. This is optional but will produce better results.
Line the wheelbarrow with the plastic and tap it down to the outside of the wheelbarrow for easy clean up.
Prepare yourself. Put on gloves, mask, goggles, apron, etc to preference
Pour the first two bags of mulch in the covered wheelbarrow
Pour the binder on top of those two
Pour the remaining two bags of mulch on top of binder
Blend the mulch and binder by hand first and then with tool of choice to evenly coat the mulch with the binder – look for a thick consistency throughout the entire mulch. If you have loose mulch continue to mix.
Once all of the mulch is completely covered, use the wheelbarrow and pour the mulch evenly as possible over the area you cleared. Feel free to use a hoe or rake to maneuver the mulch how you want it to lay.
After you have majority of the mulch in place, form the edges of the area and mulch so you have no empty spaces or gaps and no landscaping fabric is showing.
You can leave the mulch freely to have a more natural look or flatten the rubber mulch to have a cleaner look as desired.
If a more finished look is desired; mix soap and water in a bucket and flatten the surface with the trowel and desired. Dab water onto the trowel and run it across the area to flatten.
Allow 24-72 hours for curing. Once cured maintenance is simple. Mowing and trimming can easily be done closely without disturbing the mulch.
