Mulch And Woodchip Sales
Do you have landscaping dreams, but are unsure of how to get started making them a reality? There are many ways to elevate your curb appeal. Just adding a few simple materials to your cart at the home improvement store can really help your home garden or commercial storefront look more finished and polished. Adding ground cover materials such as mulch or wood chips is a great way to tie a glamorous bow around your landscape.
Mulch helps your plants and trees beyond curb appeal. Adding mulch to your garden also improves soil health, reduces erosion, aids in water retention, and deters weeds and pests.
There are a few things that you should look out for as you are looking at all of the options for mulch and/or wood chips. In general, picking out ground cover with larger chunks is a good idea. This will help your mulch decompose more slowly. Bark-based mulches are also a good idea as opposed to shredded varieties of mulch. If available, organic mulches are better for your soil. As they decompose, they will add more nutrients to the soil and improve soil health and balance.
When spreading mulch across your flowerbeds, you will need to lay it down approximately seven to ten centimetres thick. Take this into consideration when you are ordering or purchasing ground cover for your landscape project. Adding more will help reduce the likelihood of weeds germinating, but too much mulch could hinder the soil from soaking up enough water.
You’d be surprised by how much mulch you need for large areas. If you are planning to cover a large area with ground cover, you may consider a bulk delivery service instead of buying bags of wood chips at the store. You can also call in an arborist, like us here at Dynamic Arborist, to do all of the planning, measuring, and heavy lifting for you. We would be glad to conquer your mulching and wood chipping projects for you. Give us a call with any inquiries or if you are interested in receiving a free assessment and/or quote.
