How The Mulch King came about. Andrew has learned how to do all of this from the intake to making the right mix of compost by taking classes and studying programs online. He has friends who have similar facilities and have been very helpful. It has also been a little bit of trial and error. The Mulch King is located at 110 Smith Rd. Temperance at the corner of Smith and Telegraph roads. Business owner Andrew Nycz purchased two parcels of land that totaled 24 acres with the largest parcel zoned for a business. He chose Bedford Township with the idea of, in addition to starting The Mulch King, moving his Toledo business to the area and eventually building a house on the other parcel where he and his wife Jody would live. We currently live in West Toledo and had wanted to move to the area for several years. We wanted to go somewhere where there wasn’t a business already set up there like The Mulch King. We looked at property and eventually found the two parcels. Our goal was to have our business and our home within five or six blocks of each other in Bedford Township. The Mulch King has developed over the past couple of years. The business started out in the fall of 2017 as a place where Bedford residents could drop off leaves, brush and grass from the fall clean-up of their yards. In 2018 we started expanding toward the back of the property and started selling a couple kinds of mulch and topsoil. Now 2019 The Mulch King is fully operational, we have a nice inventory of materials to sell. Prices are a little less than other wholesale or retail prices around. The Mulch King's products are priced less than competitive businesses.
A big seller at The Mulch King is obviously mulch. We have several varieties of mulch—different colors and grinding textures. We have black, brown and red. Our most popular color is triple black. It doesn’t mold, lose its color and it stays nice longer. It’s a high quality product. Our Premium Screened Topsoil is another big seller. We also carry compost and topsoil blend. River rock comes in two sizes, decorative boulders, and asphalt millings, which can be used to make a drive back to a barn or a pad on which to park a camper or boat, are also products available at The Mulch King.

We have an expansion going on—six acres in two spots to about double the size of the facility. We enjoy being able to work outside.
