Mulching for Residential & Commercial Properties
Mulching is one of the most effective methods of weed control. Mulching is one of the solutions that we typically provide for our clients who are experiencing problems with weeds in their shrub and flower beds. Generally speaking, mulch is a material that is applied onto the soil that serves a number of purposes. Mulching inhibits the growth of weeds, but is also used as a way to increase the concentration of nutrients in the soil. There are both organic and synthetic forms of mulch. Mulching around trees allows them to stop competing with grass. Mulch will help reduce pests and disease in the garden. Cedar mulch has natural oils that deter insects. And it encourages earthworms!!
Not only does mulching enhance the appearance of your landscape, but it also provides many unseen benefits.Some benefits of mulching include:
- Protects trees, plants and shrubs from being damaged by mowers
- Helps retain soil moisture, which reduces watering needs
- Moderate soil temperature fluctuations
- Protects shallow root plants from freeze damage and frost heave
- Improves soil structure and nutrient availability as it decomposes.
- Reduces the growth of weeds and grasses, which compete for water and nutrients
- Reduces erosion by softening the impact of rain
- Adds organic material to the soil
