Basic Mulch Tips for Protecting Gardens and Trees 

Mulch is more than a decorative accent in flower gardens and around trees. It inhibits the growth of weeds, helps the soil to stay moist, and can regulate the temperature of the soil. How much mulch is needed and what type is best will depend on where the garden is located and what it will be protecting. Certain types of mulch can deter insects as well.


Types of Mulch Service 

The variety of mulch available is enormous. The most commonly used materials are wood mulches. These can be from different types of wood like cedar and pine or wood chips from a number of species. These are typically chips that come from recycled limbs and whole trees. However, wood chips can also come from recycled wood products like pallets.

Proper Mulch Application 

Calculating how much mulch is needed will require the customer to know the length and width of the area that is to be covered, you can use our Mulch Calculator to assist you with this. Plan on a little extra for the trees and shrubs that are scattered around the yard. It is often a good idea, if the mulch is still too thick the following spring, to strip away some of the old mulch and apply fresh material.
