WHAT IS MULCH, AND WHY WOULD YOU
WANT TO HAVE IT ON YOUR PLANTING BEDS?
Mulch is anything that is spread over the surface of your garden beds. It can be of an organic variety such as compost, cocoa shells, oyster shells, or bark mulch; or it can also be of an inorganic variation like decorative stone, and infrequently used, shredded rubber. Mulches are used to help retain soil moisture, reduce weeds, keep soils cooler in the summer and insulate them in the winter.
When choosing a mulch, many factors need to be considered. Our staff can help you choose the best mulch for your landscape that will both enhance the aesthetics of your property and promote the health of your valuable plants.
