WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MULCH?
Many homeowners choose to install mulch in their yard and garden for the aesthetic benefits, but mulching can provide many other benefits for your plants and soil.
- Prevents Weeds – When mulch in laid, it prevents sunlight from reaching the ground underneath, making it harder for weeds to grow through in your garden or flower beds. In addition, landscape fabric can be applied under some mulches to prevent weeds more effectively.
- Controls Moisture – Mulch helps to retain and control moisture by slowing evaporation, helping your garden plants to thrive. Mulch also prevents soil crusting by not allowing rain to hit the soil directly.
- Minimizes Erosion – Mulch helps your landscaped areas to retain their shape and prevents soil erosion. Adding edging stones around the area will also help prevent washout.
- Improves Soil Quality – Organic mulches add nutrients and enrich the soil as they decompose.
- Low Cost – Mulch is a very cost-effective way to prevent weeds and improve the curb appeal of your home or business.
WHICH KIND OF MULCH IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Mulch comes in seemingly endless options of colors and materials. Each variety has its own benefits. When choosing a mulch for your yard, there are several things that should be taken into consideration such as your landscaping vision, budget, and the needs of your garden. During your consultation, our experienced staff will listen to your landscaping goals and help determine the perfect mulch for your lawn and budget.
- Organic Mulches – These kinds of mulches are the most common. Organic mulch is made of wood and other plant matter. This kind of mulch will decompose over time, adding nutrients to the soil.
- Inorganic Mulches – Rubber chips and rocks are some common inorganic mulches. While these kinds of mulches do not add nutrients to the soil, they offer easier upkeep and need to be replaced less often.
At Elegant Greens, we install a variety of mulch types and colors. The most popular colors are red, black, and brown. The professional staff at Elegant Greens can help you decide which color and style is the best choice for your garden, flower bed, or any other landscaping feature.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED MULCH REAPPLIED?
The lifespan of mulch varies widely depending on the type of mulch, the area it was applied, and other factors. For best results, we recommend having organic mulch reapplied annually. The best time to apply mulch is in the spring, before weeds begin to pop up, but after the soil has warmed up.
