We provide mulching services in late winter and early spring before most plants have started growing. We recommend adding 1″ of mulch every 1-2 years depending on site conditions and mulch type. The proper mulching of your landscape beds will not only give your property a crisp, clean, and manicured look, but it will also drastically reduce the amount of time spent weeding, watering and fighting pests. Mulching also helps with erosion control and it keeps dirt from splashing up on your flowers, home, and hardscape features when it rains. We can usually calculate the amount of mulch your landscape needs and can give you a quote to do the work.
In most cases we recommend eastern red cedar for the following reasons: it is wind and erosion resistant, it is an attractive natural color, it has no fake dyes or chemicals, it has a pleasant aroma, it has natural insect deterrents, and a very long life, it is locally available, and is good for the environment to remove cedar weed trees from farmland. A newly available economical and eco-friendly mulch option that we recommend is pine mulch derived from recycled pallets. Being very similar to color and texture to cedar mulch, it is more economical for covering large areas. Other options include hardwood, and colored mulch.
