A natural weed barrier, water conservation tool, and nourishment for the soil—
The ins and outs of Mulch—
Mulch can refer to many different types of products. We believe that natural wood or bark is the best choice. Natural wood mulch breaks down and eventually turns into rich soil. Micro organisms and beneficial fungi live in mulch and rich soils, benefiting plant materials.
Because mulch breaks down continuously (which is exactly what is suppose to happen), it is important to replenish your beds with fresh mulch each season. Beautiful Blooms recommends adding about 1-2 inches every year, or if you prefer, 2-4 inches every other year. You need to maintain a depth of 2.5-3” throughout all planting beds to realize the benefits of improved soil structure and substantially limited weed growth. Mulch also aids in water conservation and overall plant health.
Many home owners find mulching beds to be labor intensive…and it is. Beautiful Blooms provides this service throughout the season, although spring is the preferred time to apply mulch. We can apply up to 65 yards of mulch in one day! Most home landscapes require on average between 5-15 yards. Call today to reserve your spot on our schedule.
We have several mulch types available and will work with you to choose the type that will work best for your situation.
