Why use mulch?
Mulch insulates, keeping the temperature more steady and protecting the roots from hot spells
and cold snaps. Mulch also keeps soil moisture from evaporating so you don’t have to water as
often. It shades out weed seeds so they don’t get enough light to sprout. Mulch around a tree
trunk helps protect bark from string trimmers and lawn mowers. The organic mulch is a food
source as it breaks down to feed microorganisms that in turn nurture plants and make soil a
better home for roots.
Gravel mulch, recycled glass or recycled rubber tires will cover the ground, but won’t improve
soil as organic mulch does and the pieces tend to stray all over the yard. We do yard cleanup
but why not spend it on mulch instead. It is a good idea to replenish mulch periodically to
suppress weed germination and give it a nice fresh new look.
Bulk mulch is measured by the cubic yard. A cubic yard is 27 cubic feet. A general rule of
thought is to maintain approximately 2” of mulch for perennial beds and 4” over tree roots.
One cubic yard will cover about 110 square feet at 3 inches deep.
Bagged mulch is much more expensive, but may be easier to handle, especially if you have no
place for a pile of bulk mulch. If we are installing the mulch, we prefer to remove the mulch
from a dump trailer during install. Give us a call today if you have any questions or would like
to get some mulch delivered or delivered/installed. We do not offer loading or pickup service.
Our mulch is from a highly reputable supplier and you will be happy you made this call.
What is meant by “organic” mulch? When referring to mulch, organic means those that are of
plant material. Mulches are made from a variety of materials including non-organic options
such as rock, plastic and rubber. Rock mulches compact the soil and can hold in an excessive
amounts of heat. When should I apply mulch? Most mulching can be done anytime during the
growing season, generally the earlier the better. For winter protection, it is
important to understand you are not trying to keep the soil warm. Mulch around plants and
tress provide a more consistent cold and minimize the alternating freezing and thawing.
