If you want to retain an attractive and healthy landscape, mulch can be one of your most valuable assets. Mulch is any material (organic or inorganic) that is placed on top of bare soil. While it is easy to understand the aesthetic value of using mulch around your trees and flowers, mulch also offers many benefits to your soil and plants. Mulch is a simple addition that can offer significant enhancement for your landscape.
Here are some leading reasons to apply fresh mulch to your spring landscape this year:
#1 Weed Control – mulch acts as a barrier to starve out weed growth
#2 Retains Moisture – less water evaporates under the sun when a layer of mulch is covering the soil
#3 Prevents Soil Erosion – rainwater is much less likely to wash away or displace your soil when you have mulch
#4 Enrich Soil Nutrition – as organic mulch decomposes, it can release valued nutrients to your soil
#5 Pest Repellent – cedar bark and other types of mulch can deter insects and pests with their natural oils
Choosing the Best Mulch Variety
At Everlast Lawns and Landscapes, we recognize the remarkable advantages of using mulch. Strategically laid mulch can not only protect and enhance your soil, but it can create a clean, attractive and manicured landscape appearance. Our team offers bark, pine straw, dyed hardwood and other mulches to ensure each customer finds the right mulch type for their specific landscape and style.
Most mulch varieties need to be replenished at least once or twice a year. Do you have enough mulch in your yard to reap the benefits? We understand that raking and spreading mulch is not an easy job. In fact, it can be quite time-consuming and may require many trips to the nursery to get the correct amount of mulch for your property. To take the stress and inconvenience out of the task, we are happy to deliver and spread new mulch for you!
