Lending a Helping Hand

As a small, family owned business, being involved in our local community organizations has been important to us since day one. Whether you are a large non-profit group hosting a day of service, an athletic team, or a Boy Scout troop, we are proud to have been able to help groups of all sizes and purposes grow by serving their individual needs.

Donations

Each year, we give away a certain amount of product for various projects from community gardens to vouchers for auctions and fundraisers. If your community group has an upcoming service project that requires landscape supplies, reach out and tell us about your project as soon as you can!

Fundraisers

Churches, clubs, and athletic teams have all been able to benefit from our mulch fundraisers to cut down on their participation fees, or pay for upcoming learning opportunities. With guidance, participants are able to set their own pricing on our product, and it sells itself- everybody needs mulch!

Give Back Program

Our Give Back program is a no brainer. If an organization has a need for any kind of fundraising, this program keeps on giving. We offer 10% back on any sale at Musselman’s made on the organization’s behalf throughout the entire year—all the customer has to do is mention it at the time of the order and 10% will be given back to the club.

 

Our partnerships lend a helping hand in the success of our community organizations to ensure that great things continue to happen here. Be sure to check out our Facebook page to see past projects we have been fortunate enough to help out with! No matter the needs of your church, club, school, or team-- we are here to help, from the ground up.


Landscape To-Dos | Early Spring Edition

You may be dreading these words, but we are excited to say it is officially time to get back to work in your backyard! The very first day of Spring has come and gone, and there might even be a 48-hour window this weekend with no rain or snow in central Indiana (key word: might!). That is a surefire sign it's time to get some refreshed mulch in those flower beds and actually start the outdoor improvement projects you've been dreaming about through the long winter.

Don't know where to start? Here are a few things to keep in mind this time of year, so you aren't stuck with all the work right before the guests arrive for your race day celebration or daughter's graduation party.

  1. Spring Clean-up: Remove the remaining leaves and debris from your gutters and planting beds, clear the unwanted brush and growth out of your yard and finish up by cutting back dead foliage before the new growth kicks in. Prioritize edging your beds as a part of this process- it will help you effectively keep your mulch in place and deter the lawn from extending its boundary.
  2. Mulch: Refresh your landscape beds with a few inches of mulch. Not only does it make your planting areas look neat, but it will help retain moisture in the soil and will keep roots cool in the upcoming summer heat. When mulch breaks down, it restores much-needed nutrients to your soil. If your old mulch is caked together and not decomposing well, remove most of it before you apply 2-3 inches of fresh product. For more information about mulch options and best practices, call our office to speak to a customer service representative!
  3. Equipment: In the early spring days, it is important to ensure your lawn mower and irrigation systems are ready to roll when you need them!

If you are as excited as we are about Spring, you are anxious to get back into the garden and beautify your outdoor living space. Continue to keep an eye on that Indiana weather- you will want to wait until after the frost dates have cleared to introduce most new plants to your beds. The steps above for early spring will set up your landscape for success this season!
