A Word About Mulch

Mulching is one of the best things you can do for your soil and plants. The proper mulch is a natural and organic way to encourage healthy growth of your plants. It also can help enrich the soil. A fresh layer of mulch will help prevent weeds. By mulching you can also moderate the temperature of your soil. In dry weather, it can help the soil retain moisture and reduce the need for watering. Mulch acts as an insulation barrier helping to protect against the extreme conditions of both the summer and winter. Mulching is very attractive and can add to the natural and beautiful look of any landscape. It comes in a variety of colors, types and textures.

How to Choose the Right Mulch

Choosing the right mulch greatly depends on what you are trying to accomplish. If your only goal is making your yard look attractive, you can simply choose the one you think looks best. If you want to have mulch around plants such as annuals and perennials then mulch with smaller pieces would work best. If you're unsure, just give us a call.
