Benefits of Our Seasonal Mulching ServicesOur seasonal mulching services are tailored for each landscape and garden. We intend to make most of the mulching solutions, offering the following benefits to our residential, HOA, and commercial clients:
Enhancing Curb AppealMulch has the effect of instantly adding rich colors to your planting beds. It can give a manicured look to different areas including:
- Around shrubs and trees
- Between garden beds
- Your home’s foundation
We can choose colored mulches to complement the existing hues in your gardens.
Improved Soil QualityWe use wood mulches and other mulches made of organic materials to improve the quality of your soil. The insects and microbes in the soil will naturally breakdown this type of mulch over time. This will replenish the soil with essential nutrients.
Protection from Temperature VariationsThe right mulch application also has an insulating effect on the soil. It can regulate soil temperature, keeping the roots warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This property is especially beneficial for new plantings that are tender.
Fighting WeedsWhen the right thickness of mulch is applied, it can prevent weeds from growing. Our experience and adherence to proven industry standards allow us to apply the right mulch at the right depth to block sunlight and other factors required for weeds to sprout.
Moisture ConservationProper mulching also helps save water. As it creates a layer over the soil, it slows down moisture evaporation. More water is retained by the soil, thus minimizing the need for watering. The roots will have more water available, thus reducing any chances of them drying.
Spring MulchingOur spring mulching solutions will provide your property with a clean, crisp, and manicured look. It will also minimize the amount of watering and weeding required. Other benefits include reduced erosion and preventing dirt from being splashed up on the shrubbery, flowers, and hardscape features when watering or when it rains.
A proper spring prep work and mulching application should include:
- Removing winter debris and weeds
- Re-defining bed edges
- Applying mulch
Fall or Early Winter MulchingMulch has an important role to play even during the fall. It helps your shrubs and plants to cope better with the cold of winter. We install the right type of mulch to act as a blanket for your shrubbery, plants, and ornamental trees. Its insulating properties will keep the root system warmer.
