Is colored mulch impacted by rain?
After the color is "locked", there is no issue with rain however it should not be spread during rainy conditions or when rain is in the near forecast. Colored mulch is processed with a water based dye and needs a minimum of 6 hours of sun and wind after the material has been laid for the colorant to dry and ‘lock’. Colored mulch will lose color value if applied during rainy conditions.

Is there anything I need to know about maintaining a colored mulch bed?
Colored mulch retains its vivid colors longer than traditional mulch. However, as with traditional mulch, you should periodically check colored mulch for compaction, and use a cultivator or rake to loosen it up. This helps prevent fungal growth and improves plant hydration by allowing air and water to pass through.

Is colored mulch safe for children, pets, and plants?
Colored mulch is safe for children, pets, and the environment, and top brands are thoroughly tested. Refer to http://www.mulchcolors.com/mulch-safety for more information.

How long will the color last?
Colored mulch will typically maintain its color for one to two seasons, depending on the amount of direct sunlight.

How much mulch do I need for a landscaping project?
Our mulch is sold by the cubic yard, which measures 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet. Mulch is typically laid out at a depth of 3 inches. 1 yard of mulch will cover 108 square feet 3” thick.
To calculate how much you need, multiply the length of your bed by the width, and then multiply by .33. Divide this number by 27. That will tell you how many cubic yards you need.

Animal Bedding

Why is choosing the right kind of bedding for my animal important?
The quality of bedding you choose can greatly impact your animal’s health and comfort. It’s important that animal bedding be absorbent and easy to move and store.

Should I be concerned about the dust in my animal bedding?
Cows, horses and other animals are like people in that if they have breathing or respiratory problems like asthma dust can create problems. Since animals may look for food on the ground, they also may be inhaling dust that is laying among the sawdust or bedding. The animal bedding that we supply contains a minimal amount of dust.

What kinds of sawdust or shavings are not safe for horses?
Walnut, maple and cherry are a few woods that can be harmful to horses. The majority of our animal sawdust is made from pine and is safe for horses.

Bio Mass Fuel

What are the advantages of using wood biomass?
Wood can be continually replenished, which leads to a sustainable and dependable supply. There is also little net production of carbon dioxide from wood combustion. Wood fuel contains minimal heavy metals and extremely low levels of sulfur; wood fuel is no threat to acid rain pollution.
The principal economic advantage of wood-burning systems is that wood fuel is usually less expensive than competing fossil fuels.

What sort of fuel can be burned in a biomass boiler?
Almost all biomass materials can be burned in biomass boilers, but the majority of systems operate on woodchips or wood pellets. On a small scale almost any biomass material can be burned in a batch fed boiler including straw, wood offcuts, waste wood, and logs. It should be noted that the burning of waste wood and offcuts may be subject to the Waste Incineration Directive which prohibits the burning of materials contaminated by heavy metals (eg lead based paint) and halogenated organic compounds (eg some pesticides, sheep dip and similar materials). On a very large scale, as found in district heating systems, fully automatic boilers can burn straw, sawdust, nut husks, olive kernels, and oat, wheat and barley husks. Some of these latter materials are not recommended for burning on any but the largest scale because of the potential problems of slag formation, combustion control and emissions.

How does the fuel get into the boiler?
On automatically fed boilers a fuel extract and fed mechanism is employed to move fuel from the silo to the boiler. The Automatically Fed Systems Guide, available from the BEC website, details the fuel storage, extraction and feed systems possible together with photographs of the systems. In summary then fuel extract options are walking floors, sweeping mechanisms and hopper bottoms, while fuel feed is by auger or ram stoker.

Transportation

Where do you haul?
We are based out of Northeastern Wisconsin and haul the state of Wisconsin, upper Michigan, and throughout the Mid-west.

What type of freight do you haul?
We are a common carrier and we haul dry goods. We also have specialized equipment including walking floor and belt trailers which can haul a variety of goods including mulch, animal bedding, food waste, biomass fuel, stone, and grain.

What type of trailers do you have for hauling/moving freight?
As a for hire transport carrier we offer a fleet of well-maintained 53’ food grade dry vans, open top vans, flat bed, and specialized walking floor and belt trailers.

What are specialized walking floor and belt trailers?
Walking floor and belt trailers are live floor trailers that are used for hauling loose materials such as mulch, gravel, vegetable byproducts or sand. They are hydraulically driven moving floor conveyance systems for moving material off of a trailer. The system can quickly unload loose material without having to tip the trailer or tilt the floor as with other dumping systems. Walking floor trailers generally have aluminum slats that slid forward and backward to ‘walk’ the material out the back of the trailer. Belt (Red River) trailers, on the other hand, have a conveyor belt on the bottom of the trailer that pushes the material out.
