How It Works and Frequently Asked Questions


What is the history of Diamond Mulch?

Diamond Mulch, Inc. was founded in 1996 as a site to recycle wood waste. Since then, we have joined the Vogel Holding, Inc. family of businesses and expanded our services to include the sale of mulch and landscaping materials as well as yard-waste hauling.

All mulch products are manufactured on-site, allowing us to closely monitor the quality and content of the mulch materials we sell. Many of our experienced team members have worked with the Diamond Mulch business since its founding and are happy to provide friendly, expert service to our clients.

Diamond Mulch, Inc. is a no-waste operation. All products are sourced from and made in Western PA.
