Besides adding to the beauty of your landscaping by providing interesting textures and colours, mulching helps eliminate weeds and improves the quality of your plants . Mulching not only traps in moisture to keep your plants healthy but improves soil structure and drastically reduces the need for weeding by preventing germination. By preventing the top layer of soil from drying out, mulching enables water to move more easily and to be absorbed by the plants. Evaporation of water from the soil can be reduced by as much as 25% when you mulch with a 2”–4” layer meaning less watering is needed. Mulch also keep the soil cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
We offer 6 different types and colours of mulch, for more information on our mulching services click the link below...
