What is Mulching?Mulching is a proven method of weed control. It is one of the most effective ways of protecting the beauty and health of a landscape. The process involves placing a layer of mulch over the flower bed soil, around the plants, and over a line of shrubs.
It is mostly used for placement over the top of the soil around the plants. Besides preventing the growth of weeds, it also reduces soil compaction in the rainy season. Mulching also improves the soil’s nutrition and helps maintain the soil temperature. Another benefit is water conservation as mulch can retain moisture, thus providing more water to the plants’ roots.
Mulch OptionsWe supply different types of mulches, including the following:
- Wood shavings/double hammered/double ground hardwood
- Natural playground, certified mulch
- Bark chips
- Pine Nuggets
- Premium color enhanced mulch
- Pure brick chips: it comes in a beautiful red-brick color, which adds interest and variety to your existing landscape. Brick chips tend to be more of a permanent landscaping solution than organic mulch, which decomposes over time. Brick chip can be used on walkways, between stepping stones, in flower beds, along driveways or patios and in numerous other areas around your home. Many homeowners choose brick chips because they will not wash away with rain.

Need for MulchNot every yard is going to have mulch. Many don’t even have flower beds. When it comes to creating properly maintained yards, mulch is a quite popular feature. If you have a garden, lawn, or flowers, you must use mulch. This organic material is spread over the soil surface in a layer. It supports the plants to grow better by aiding the soil to retain moisture and replenishing it with various nutrients. Greater moisture retention also provides the plants with a steady supply of water.
As mulch regulates the soil temperature, plants’ roots will thrive in a more resilient environment. Mulch suppresses the growth of weed by blocking sunlight from reaching the soil. Thus, weeds will not get the energy required to grow. All this allows your landscape to grow and thrive without any limitations. Plants and flowers will have lesser competition for nutrients. Mulch is beneficial even for landscapes without plants and flowers. Layering the lawn edges can help prevent the weeds from growing and spreading.
Quantity of MulchIf you have been doing your own mulch work, you must measure or estimate the square footage of the mulch beds and we can help you determine how much material you require. Usually you multiply the width x length and divide by 27. That will give you the cubic yards needed.
