Your #1 Choice For Professional Mulching Services

Mulching is a great alternative to weed controls as it offers a very natural look and it is safe for the environment. By spreading mulch over an exposed surface of the soil, the light will be blocked which will result in the discouragement of weed growth.

Mulching is either organic material, such as manure, shredded bark chips, or compost, or inorganic which includes pebbles or crushed rock.

Benefits of Mulch

Mulching is one of the best things you can do for your soil and plants. If you haven’t done it before then we highly recommend it. The benefits to the natural and healthy growth of your plants and contributions to your soil are much greater than any inorganic weed control.

A fresh layer of mulch will help against the germination of weeds which will reduce the need for weed controls. By mulching, you can also moderate the temperature of your soil. In dry weather, moisture will be retained which will result in the need for less watering.

Mulch acts as an insulation barrier helping to protect against the extreme conditions of both the summer and winter. Mulching is very attractive and can add to the natural and beautiful look of any landscape. It comes in a variety of colors, types, and varieties.

What is the main purpose of mulching?

  • Weed suppression.
  • Retains water more for plants.
  • Looks (curb appeal).
  • Smell.

 

When should Mulching be done?

Mulching should be done annually or at a minimum on a 2-year cycle.  In regards to the time of year, it can be done anytime because in the springtime it can retain the water for the plants and reduce weeds and in the fall it can protect the soil from winter weather.

 

What type of mulch is best?

Natural mulch is the best instead of an organically color died mulch.

 

What should I put down before mulching?

Some people prefer to put down a weed barrier (landscaping felt) prior to putting mulch down which provides another layer of protection so the weeds are reduced even more.  Some people like to put down healthy nutrient-rich soil prior to putting their mulch down.

 

Is it better to mulch in spring or fall?

You can mulch either time of the year.  Spring mulching helps with water retention and weed suppression and aesthetics.  Fall mulching will protect your plants over the winter.

 

Should I remove the old mulch?

You don’t have to unless there is mulch rot displayed in the area.  If there is mulch rot you will need to discard all of that bad mulch before you can apply more mulch.

 

What thickness should I put down?

We recommend a few different thicknesses to clients based on their individual situation.  If you are selling your house and are strictly doing it for curb appeal we recommend 1 inch of the same color that is there (if possible).

If you are looking to have an area topped up we recommend 2 inches of material across the area.  If you are doing a new installation of mulch for an area we recommend 3 inches.  You can also adjust this with a nice garden soil of 2 inches and mulch of 2 inches on a new installation

How to Choose the Right Mulch

Choosing the right mulch greatly depends on what you are trying to accomplish. If you are simply looking to add some attraction to your lawn, then choose the one that looks the best to you. If you want to have mulch around plants such as annuals and perennials, then mulch with smaller pieces would be most efficient. Natural bark mulch would be an excellent choice in this instance. If you would like to really bring out the colors of blooms then dark organic mulch would suit best. Maybe you want a rubber mulch in your beds, that is another option. Give us a call to discuss and we will make recommendations for you.

Organically Dyed Mulches

This type of mulch is the most popular due to the variety of colors, shapes, and types. Clear Cut Group only uses non-toxic dyes to ensure protection against plants and animals. Organically dyed mulches are biodegradable and can last up to four times longer than traditional, natural mulch.

Natural Bark Mulch

As its name suggests these types of mulches are completely organic in nature offering both a natural feel and look while complementing your existing landscape. You can choose from a variety of types of natural mulch such as red cedar bark or pine straw, each of which has added benefits. Unlike other mulches, natural mulch offers an array of organic aromas that some homeowners may find enlightening.
