Hi there. I possibly developed a source where I can get Cascade 100% Douglas Fir Wood Pellets for free (rather than discardithe broken bags the pellets come in a friend will save them for me). I plan to incorporate the wood pellets to aid in sheet mulching my yard - pellets or cardboard on the lawn, compost on top of them then straw on top of that. Will that work?
I just contacted some of the tree companies in town and let them know they could dump mulch here. So far I've had four 14-foot dump truck loads of mulch dropped off. I've covered the entire yard with cardboard and mulched over the cardboard with wood mulch.
I have raised beds where I have worked in free horse manure from the stables right up the road.
the the wood mulch in the yard is mainly designed to kill off the grass so I can focus my attention on the fruittrees I've planted (and the guilds I'll add in the spring)
Call a couple of local tree companies. They have to PAY to dump those trucks of mulch. So they're more than happy to dump it for free.
