Benefits of Getting Fresh Mulch Installed

According to the USDA, "Mulching is one of the simplest and most beneficial practices you can use in the garden." Here are some of the most notable benefits of spreading fresh mulch:

1. Curb Appeal

Fresh mulch instantly improves the looks of your yard, adding vibrant colors and a polished appearance. It creates a neat and well-maintained look that boosts the overall look of your property.

2. Soil Health

Mulch acts as a protective layer, nourishing the soil and promoting its overall health. By providing a barrier against extreme temperatures and erosion, mulch helps maintain soil structure, prevents nutrient leaching, and creates an optimal environment for beneficial microorganisms and plant roots to thrive. This results in long-term soil health and vitality, supporting the growth of healthy plant life.

3. Moisture Rentention

Mulch helps to retain moisture in the soil, reducing the need for frequent watering. This is particularly beneficial during hot and dry periods, like summer months, as it helps to keep plants hydrated and healthy while conserving water.

4. Weed Suppression

Mulch acts as a natural barrier, suppressing weed growth by blocking sunlight and inhibiting weed seed germination. This helps to reduce the time and effort spent on weed control, keeping your garden beds looking tidy and weed-free.

Mulch Varieties: The Different Options

Mulch comes in a variety of options, each offering unique benefits and characteristics. Understanding the differences between these mulch types can help you make an informed decision for your landscaping needs. Here are some of our more common options:​

Organic Mulch

Made from natural materials such as bark, pine straw, wood chips, straw, or leaves, organic mulch decomposes over time, enriching the soil with nutrients.

Colored Mulch

Colored mulch, also known as "dyed mulch" is available in various hues such as brown, black, or red. This type of mulch adds aesthetic appeal to your landscape. It is typically our most popular option and is made from shredded wood or recycled materials.

Quarry Products

Quarry products, such as gravel, river rock, or pea gravel, provide a decorative alternative to organic mulches. It does not decompose and it offers excellent drainage, making it ideal for areas prone to erosion or water runoff.

Which Is Right For You?

Choosing the perfect mulch for your landscaping project depends on various factors, including your aesthetic preferences, maintenance preferences, and specific landscaping goals. Consider the following questions to determine which mulch type best suits your needs:

Aesthetic Appeal

Do you prefer the natural look of organic mulch, or are you drawn to the uniform appearance of colored mulch? Consider the visual impact you want to achieve in your landscape and select a mulch type that complements your property.


Are you looking for a low-maintenance option that requires minimal upkeep, or are you willing to invest in regular maintenance? Inorganic mulches like gravel or rock may require less maintenance, while organic mulches may need periodic replenishment as they decompose.

Plant Needs

Consider the specific needs of your plants when choosing mulch. Some plants may benefit from organic mulches' moisture retention and nutrient enrichment, while others may thrive in dryer conditions offered by stone or gravel mulches.


Evaluate your budget and consider the cost-effectiveness of different mulch options. While organic mulches may be more affordable upfront, they may require more frequent replacement over time. In contrast, inorganic mulches may have a higher initial cost but offer long-term durability.
