Rise Above Labor Shortage

Applied Mulch and Soil - Tuesday, October 30, 2018
Rise Above Labor Shortage With many industries in New York State and surrounding areas suffering from a labor shortage, it is vital for businesses to examine the underlying costs of manpower and how to improve efficiency in order to complete projects in a timely manner. One of the most efficient ways to decrease manpower while completing a project such as mulch, soil, or aggregate installation, is to work with the professionals of Applied Mulch & Soil. Our experts put our fleet of Express Blower® trucks to work for our clients so that they are able to focus on other areas of their business. This may seem like it would be too costly, but if you examine the costs and scope of the project, you will be pleasantly surprised.

The Costs of Using an Express Blower Truck


Utilizing an Express Blower® truck for projects can make jobs that would otherwise be almost impossible or too strenuous, more efficient to manage and complete. The advanced technology of our equipment allows for our process to be faster and more efficient than traditional installation methods. Applied Mulch & Soil provides and installs the material precisely where they are needed, whether it is on a steep embankment or a roof top terrace. 


While looking at the costs associated with labor, it’s essential to consider the following:

• Times when the amount of manpower is down, you need to take into consideration the places and projects that could benefit from the labor the most. Which is better for your business, installing mulch or green roof materials manually or focusing on tasks would continue to benefit the company? Allowing our experts to handle the project, no matter how difficult the location is, can be the solution to your problem.

• Putting an Express Blower® truck to work can lead to an increase in profitability. While our team of experts work to install the materials where they are needed, this will allow your personnel to focus on other areas of the project or other areas of your business as opposed to trying to work on multiple aspects. This ensures your projects will be completed in a timely fashion and surpassing your satisfaction. 

• Consider the product being used, the duration of the project, and if the materials will need to be stored. When the required materials are installed with an Express Blower® truck it will reduce your overall costs and potential risks associated with the project. Traditional installation methods, many of which require wheelbarrows for installation, may also require storage for supplies and materials. Express Blower® trucks gives our team the ability to complete a project within a matter of hours, which when compared to traditional methods, proves to be significant. Projects which can take multiple days for a crew to complete manually would require storage for the materials and tools which then requires additional cleanup. 



In addition to the benefits listed above, Applied Mulch & Soil provides and installs the materials precisely where they’re needed which eliminates leftover piles needed to be cleaned up. Our fleet also ensures that your landscape, hardscape, or other structures do not become damaged during the installation. 

When you take all of these into consideration, the benefits of working with an express installation company far surpasses the traditional methods many companies are used to working with.

3 Erosion Control Solutions to Fit Your Project

Applied Mulch and Soil - Monday, October 22, 2018
3 Erosion Control Solutions to Fit Your Project As soil erodes, it loses nutrients, clogs nearby waterways, and can lead to severe damage to the landscape and surrounding area. There are ways to help prevent erosion to your jobsite and landscape. Continue reading for the 3 ways our experts ensure proper erosion control.

Erosion Control for Every Project


1. Terraseeding®: Our exclusive Terraseeding® process is ideal for erosion control blankets, new lawn or turf installations, as well as renovating or repairing an existing lawn. Using our Express Blower truck’s pneumatic system our experts are able to quickly, and efficiently, plant new seed in large and complex areas. Our state-of-the-art equipment means there is no impact to your work site or surrounding areas as we are able to eliminate the use of wheelbarrows. With our equipment, seeds are planted, rather than being exposed on the surface. Germination is then increased due to the warmth and moisture surrounding the seed in the soil.

2. Filter Sock: This solution is most commonly used at construction sites but can be used in a variety of landscaping applications to help ensure erosion control. Utilizing a filter sock from Applied Mulch & Soil will allow water to flow steadily, at a controlled rate, while preventing sediment and particles from passing through. Our filter socks decrease the chances of elements such as stormwater runoff from damaging areas such as sloped banks, which creates erosion control.

3. Advanced Technology: Applied Mulch & Soil is comprised of experts who are driven by old-fashion values and strive to exceed your expectations on every project. With years of experience with erosion control paired with state-of-the-art equipment and superior knowledge, our team is sure to fulfill the needs of your project. Contact us today to get started!
