You can eventually use the shavings and sawdust as mulch but you'll want to lay it out in rows or spread it out so it can age a little before you use it. If you use it fresh it can heat up (a natural part of the decomposition process) and damage your plants if you place it too close to the stems of your plants. If you allow it to age over the winter months you can use it in the springtime as mulch around your plants. Best wishes with your landscape.
