Things To Consider Before Buying Mulch

Our next blog post will cover everything you should know about mulch, highlighting which mulch to purchase, what does mulch actually do, is it worth having a contractor mulch for you, and much more.

But, before we wrap up this blog post, we wanted to make sure you at least know the basics.

Mulch is really for aesthetic purposes!  Yes, it will retain some moisture in the soil which your plants will love and can possibly suppress some weeds, but watering and weeding will still be required.

The color or type of mulch you pick should really be whatever you prefer!  Take a look at the colors of your home, existing plants, and any other decorative or hardscape features you may have incorporated into your landscape.  Pick a color and texture of mulch that you feel would compliment all of these factors the best.

Before You Mulch!

Spreading the mulch isn’t the only part of the job.  To pull off a successful mulch job there is some prep involved.

Before you start spreading mulch you want to prepare your landscape beds.

Prepping your landscape beds before mulching includes pulling or spraying any weeds.  If you opt to spray the weeds, be careful around any plants.

If your plants are looking overgrown, we recommend pruning plants before mulching.
