In all honesty, mulch is one of the most time honored ways of taking care of soil. If you examine the way that natural ecosystems work, especially forests, you see that mulch (aka woody, carbon-filled material) is all over the place. Dead branches, bark, logs, dead leaves and pine needles--all of these amazing substances fall to the ground and cover up the soil like a lovely blanket.
So when we add mulch to a bed, we're really just recreating the same exact process that nature loves to carry out all over the planet.
The benefits of having mulch are numerous, for instance: it helps retain water and moisture for the plants you want to grow, it helps suppress excess weed growth, it provides a home for beneficial insects that in turn provide protection against the non-beneficial insects. Also, it just looks good, some folks even think it smells good! We could go on.
For now, suffice to say that mulch and the practice of mulching is here to stay.
What do we offer as far as services go in the mulching realm? Great question. Here it is, all spelled out for you:
We prefer to work with local mulch sources like shredded bark, wood chips, pine needles, and others. But hey, we're an open minded crew of lawn care professionals, if you have a mulch that you simply adore working with, we're totally down.
As far as our mulching service goes, we do mulch deliveries, mulch spreading, and we can help you plan and strategize where exactly the mulch needs to be put on your property. All in a day!
Spreading mulch can be a satisfying way to visually change the landscape and yard scape of your property. There's something about it that makes things feel nice and cozy on a property. At least we think so. However, the physical act of spreading mulch can be laborious and taxing for the average home owner. That's why we've dedicated creating a whole service of our business to make sure that home owners have someone out there to call up in the case of a mulch emergency, so to speak. A mulch emergency really is more of a weed emergency or moisture emergency, meaning that you've got a lot of weeds and the ground can't hold water enough. So lay on the chips, bark shreds, and other stuff and keep things nice and protected. That's what mulch is, essentially, a protector of the soil. Remember: beneficial insects, moisture, no weeds, protection of desirable plants. Oh, yes!
So! if this essay of sorts on the art, value, and importance of mulch as a ground cover and mulching laying and spreading as a service doesn't make you think "golly, I really ought to start mulching!" we don't know what will. Maybe a free consult and quote will help you out. So if you're on the fence, remember to call us up soon. Because the season is picking up quickly!
