Mulching by blower truck is another highly innovative service provided by Hermanns Contracting for the landscape industry. Incorporating a pneumatic conveying system that can easily install mulch at a distance of 90 meters (300'), mulching has become clean, efficient, accurate and cost-effective.
Mulching new or existing trees and planting beds as a scheduled maintenance practice is easily accomplished by the blower truck. For mulch installations, there is no longer a need to dump mulch materials in a pile or to create ruts in established turf areas. The blower truck delivers the mulch to the job site and then blows it directly onto the beds from the truck. For interior landscapes or multi-level garden terraces, mulch can be installed as high as the 12th floor of a building and is the most effective delivery alternative compared to using a crane or tote bags.
Hermanns supplies and installs by blower truck the following mulch products: Native Pine Mulch, Seasoned Pine Mulch, Composted Pine Bark and Natural Woodland Mulch available in Crimson, Black and Chestnut colours.
With the growing popularity of green roof gardens and the evident challenges in servicing their creation, the blower truck technology provides a safe, efficient and cost effective solution to providing soil materials where they are required. Having the ability to blow in roof garden soils as high as the 12th floor of a building and having a commanding fleet of blower units, our team of professional operators can install materials within one day if required.

Fine, washed clear granular can also be installed with the blower truck. Where traditional loading equipment is rendered inefficient or impossible and manual labor appears to be the only choice for installation, the blower truck can offer an effective solution. Typical granular installations have been implemented for drainage course preparations under pavers, behind retaining walls, planters, roof tops, sewer and water main projects, and as a decorative mulch or ground accent.
