Who We Are
How Mercury Mulch Got Started
Our experience started in 1985 when owner Cliff Rowe began installing custom landscape designs and providing lawn maintenance. Wanting to change directions, we were offered a new opportunity with supplying bulk landscaping materials for the green industry.
In 1999, Mercury Mulch, Inc. was formed using the cab of our truck as an office. We offered only one type of hardwood mulch and one pile of Nutri-green compost.
In 2000, our 1971 Ford truck had officially run its ground with countless transactions and deliveries. That spring, we acquired a 10×10 portable building, a new dump truck, and finally, our very own cash register.
Throughout our growing years, Mercury Mulch worked to gain the respect and loyalty of the local community. At our 12-year mark, we were fortunate enough to begin offering 10 varieties of mulch, running four delivery trucks, and staffing Mercury Mulch with five great employees.
Having 12 years of experience in the landscaping industry, Ryan Crandol was offered the opportunity to take over Mercury Mulch in January 2022. Building off a strong business that Mr. Rowe had created, we plan to continue in his vision providing unmatched customer service. We now offer a full line of mulch, compost, topsoil, and gravel, along with a wide selection of plants, bushes, trees, and greenery in our Garden Center.
