Mulch No-No’s:

  •  Agave
  •  Cactus
  •  Pallets – Pallets usually have nails and are treated, which is not desired for landscape applications.
  •  Palm fronds – The fibers in a palm frond are too difficult to mulch or compost.
  •  Soil (clean or contaminated)
  •  Lumber – This includes plywood, sheet rock, and chipboard
  •  Tree trunks & stumps
