Time before topping up: Annual top-up recommended.
Please Note: Our Black Mulch is dyed with an organic black vegetable dye and as a result there is a potential risk of staining occurring. Although this is unlikely to occur, if you would prefer to avoid staining, we would advise noting in your delivery instructions that you would like your bags to be placed on grass or a similar location where the staining will have minimal impact. We would recommend laying out a tarpaulin or other ground cover, to mark the location should this be an issue and to prevent any staining. Cubag will accept no responsibility for any damage that is caused by stain running from the Black Mulch. If you have any further enquiries about this, we advise you contact our team prior to ordering to receive further information.
Made from recycled timbers and dyed jet black, this product is striking and highly appealing resulting in a more polished and refined look to your garden. With long lasting colour, the dye will retain this look for a minimum of two years before you’ll have to undergo re-mulching although a yearly top-up is ideal to retain maximum visual appeal. The dyes used are 100% toxin-free, meaning that it’s completely safe to use on gardens and the resulting product will help your flowers and plants stand out better in the yard.
The timber use in the product consists of recycled wood which is air dried resulting in a collapse of cellular activity and decreases the water absorption of the wood. As a result, the air drying slows down the decomposition rate of the chips, which is responsible in part for its 2 Year duration. This process makes it lightweight and therefore compacts well and is capable of enduring all kinds of weather. Owing to its unique nature, when it rains, the water passes between the fibres and gets stored beneath and used to benefit the plants, rather than going to waste.
- Dye allows the mulch to create a “wow factor” impact in the garden, with no negative impact on the plants.
- Mulches form a protective barrier atop the soil and assist with controlling the temperature of the soil. This means that it helps keep plants warm in the winter and keep them cool in the summer. It’s basically a garden insulation system!
- Promotes virility amongst the plants and the opportunity for the roots to spread and grow strong in almost any conditions.
- Can support the decomposition and integration of other organic media that is applied to it – i.e leaves in the autumn. By turning them over beneath the protective layer they will naturally decompose and become part of the mulch, thus pushing nutrients back into the soil.
Mulches are layers of organic materials applied to the surface of an area of soil. It can be applied either directly to soil with plants in it, or to soil that is yet to be cultivated and through natural incorporation by elemental activity and the activity of worms, it will naturally work its way into the soil. Although black mulch is primarily used as a decorative feature in gardens, it also serves other purposes such as conserving moisture, suppressing weed growth and improving the all-round health and fertility of the soil. When applied correctly, it can dramatically improve soil, resulting in greater abundance of produce (if fruit or vegetables are involved) or vibrancy of colour and scent (in the case of floral plants).
FREE SHIPPING THROUGHOUT OUR METROPOLITAN AUCKLAND DELIVERY ZONES*
Delivery is available free throughout our metropolitan Auckland delivery zones.
- Within Auckland, this typically means South to Pukekohe, North to Albany, West to Titirangi and East to Bucklands Beach. If you’re unsure, upon entering our website the address popup will advise you if there are any additional costs to your nominated address.
- DELIVERY TERMS & CONDITIONS: Our standard free deliveries are made by tail lift trucks for bulk bag orders. This is a “kerbside” delivery. Whilst every effort will be made to place the product where you requested ultimately it is the driver's decision on where he can place the product safely without damage to property, truck or himself. The driver's discretion and decision on product placement is final.
“Kerbside” delivery means a flat concrete or asphalt area that is suitable for a pallet jack to operate. Please, no broken concrete, gravel or grassed areas.
If you have rough terrain or require bags placed in a very specific spot you can upgrade your delivery to a mobile forklift or crane truck. Extra charges apply for these services.
The standard tail lift trucks are typically a 6 wheeler or 4 wheeler truck with a tail lift platform at the rear of the truck which our product in manoeuvred and lowered, the type of truck is typical of what you would see with most furniture removal or house removal companies in order to get some sort of comparison on the truck that will be making the delivery.
The bag and pallet are included in the purchase price, however if you would like these removed from your property once the bags are emptied please order a pallet or bag collection and when we have a truck in the area next we will collect these for you, again these must be “kerbside” and in a central accessible area for the driver to collect easily - close to the truck.
Please consider the following conditions before ordering:
Whilst we endeavour to make deliveries on time, causes which delay delivery
may arise. Therefore, Cubag will take no liability (in damages or otherwise) for
the inability to deliver on the desired date.
In cases where a product is out of stock, Cubag has the unconditional right to
delay or cancel the order.
The delivery location must be free of any hazardous obstacles and have suitable
roads in which the truck can drive on.
As pallet jacks are used to manoeuvre the products, the delivery location must be
on level ground. This means goods cannot and will not be delivered on uneven
surfaces (e.g. slopes, grass, gravel).
The customer must understand that the position in which products are delivered
to is at the discretion of the truck driver. therefore, in cases where the customer requests product placement anywhere where the driver deems unsafe, Cubag will not be liable for any consequent damage to the customers property. Furthermore, if damage to the delivery vehicle is sustained upon delivery to an unsuitable location, the customer is liable for any damages. The drivers safety and that of your property is paramount, hence the drivers decision on where to place the product is final.
At the time of delivery, the customer or a representative of the customer, must be present. This is so the appropriate delivery spot can be established, and paperwork can be signed. Products on standard free delivery via tail lift CANNOT be lifted over any elevated structure (e.g. hedges, fences, walls). Special delivery will need to be organised.
Finally, if attempts to deliver products fail due to the lack of delivery information
or customer negligence to these conditions, the customer will be liable for any redelivery charges or extra fees incurred as a result of an incomplete delivery. If an order is subsequently cancelled, failed delivery charges will be deducted from your refund. Typically the greater of $99.00 or $40.00 per bag ordered.
Out Of Area: Typically an extra price per bag will need to be paid please enquire as prices vary dependant on the delivery location.
Hiab Or Crane Lift Truck: A hiab or crane type truck can be arranged typically this is charged by the hour. Pricing is by enquiry only. A crane truck can access areas the normal tail lift or even mobile forklift cannot. I.e. Up onto multilevel apartments or building sites or down embankments or slopes. Detailed instructions will be requested by us.
Mobile Forklift: Extra charges apply per bag.
Timed Delivery: Delivery required at a certain time of the day. This can be arranged, free delivery will not apply and truck hire by the hour will be charged for the service. Pricing given on an enquiry basis.
- Handy Bags (carry-able bags): a minimum order quantity of 10 applies. Quantities of up to 10 bags can be hand lifted and delivered (unless requested otherwise) and any order quantities of 10 or more are supplied on a recyclable pallet. We will then collect the pallets upon completion of your job so that we can re-use and recycle them.
