It's That Time of the Year Again!

mulch on shovel

Although we are in the midst of wintry weather and basketball tournaments, now is the time to start planning for your spring yard clean up.  Troop 4673 is excited to again work with Silverbrook Nursery & Landscaping to bring you premium hardwood mulch and topsoil for your lawn and gardening needs.  There are many benefits to ordering mulch from us, including:

  • Competitive Pricing.  We offer a 3.0 cubic-foot bag of brown hardwood mulch for $4.50.  Compare that to the same size bag offered for $4.90 at a home improvement store.
  • Home Delivery.  If you qualify, we will deliver the mulch to a location of your choosing (see the "Order Now!" tab for details).
  • Tax Deductible.  You will receive a receipt with your delivery allowing you to deduct $1.50 for each bag from your taxes.
  • Help grow our young men of character.  The proceeds from this fundraiser contribute to the furthing the Scouts BSA program of community service, citizenship, building character, and outdoor adventure activities.  These funds also help to defray the cost of camping for individual Scouts.

Please consider ordering some mulch and topsoil today.  Not only will you receive a great (and necessary) product to maintain the health of your yard or garden, but you will also help us make a positive difference in the lives of young men in our community.

Let's Figure Out How Much Mulch You Need?

Mulch improves the quality of your landscape.  Mulch is a necessity in most yards to maintain health of the soil therein.  Bark mulch can help prevent erosion, insulate plants, reduce soil compaction from heavy rain, keep moisture in the soil, and prevent weeds, not mention it keeps your yard looking beautiful.  But how much do you need to buy?  Use this simple reference page below to help you calculate the number of bags to purchase.

Important Information

This is Troop 4673's main fundraising activity.  Your support will help our young and growing troop buy equipment, advancement and recognition badges, and instructional materials.  Remember too that $1.50 of every bag purchased is tax deductible!

"But I don't need mulch or topsoil.  Can I still help?"  Yes you can!  Our chartered partner, New Hope Church needs mulch to maintain the health of the trees, bushes, and plants around their property.  So even if you do not need any yourself, you can purchase mulch to be donated to New Hope Church.  You do not have to be a member of the church to contribute.  Any amount is appreciated!

There are two methods for buying products from us:

  1. Check (send order via Postal Service)
  2. Credit, Debit, or PayPal (order online)

Mulch Pick & Delivery

We now offer free delivery to all customers who meet one of the following criteria:

  • Your address is within five miles of New Hope Church
  • You ordered 10 or more bags of either mulch or topsoil (donated bags not applicable)

What does this mean?  If you live within a five-mile radius of New Hope Church, then you will receive free delivery automatically, regardless of the number of bags ordered.  On the other hand, if you live beyond this point, but have ordered 10 bags or more (donated bags are exempt from this total), you will receive free delivery as well.  It does not matter how much mulch or topsoil you buy, only that the total number of non-donated bags purchased exceeds the ten-bag threshold.  Please note that donated mulch is not included in the calculations for free delivery.

You can check if your home is within five miles of New Hope Church when you order online.  See the order form for further instructions.

If you do not meet either criteria for free delivery, you may pick up your order at New Hope Church (8850 Cross Chase Circle, Fairfax Station, VA 22039) in back of the parking lot on the right-hand side:
