Why our products are called “Smarter” [ scroll down and see all of them ]

Smarter for several good reasons:

1. Our engineers are concerned about quality and your end results.   They never leave good enough alone.  Their bull-headedness about making a better, “smarter” mulch is real and you will notice it with every bag you use.  Hydroseeding and Erosion Control experts expect more from Applegate mulch and we go to extremes to deliver on that expectation.

2. Our fiberization process is not a blast of blazing heat like the other guys use.  Our mulch, you could say, is slow roasted.  This process simply allows for a better quality hydromulch.  It takes more time to process, but the end results and quality are worth it.  Our name and reputation is on every bag and so is yours.  We KNOW that our customers prefer using our hydromulch products and so will you.

3. We listen.  Yes, seriously listen to our customers.  We teach – We advise – We never stop serving you.   Our customers can call us anytime – we will always take the call.

4. It is SMARTER to use a better quality product that does a better job – from a company that will always stand behind you 100%.

Bottom line:  Applegate Mulch will make YOU look SMARTER!
