Make Your Landscape Pop
Using mulch, or a mulch substitute is a great way to add some contrasting color to your yard to make your lawn and garden pop! Not only is it a great way to add some color and prevent weeds. Mulch helps retain moisture for the plants that are mulched saving water and keeping them healthy. Especially ornamental trees shrubs and trees.
Mulch is a versatile and cost effective solution for quite a few applications. Adding other amendments to simply mulching can bring a garden or landscape to life! Natural fertilization, soil conditioners, weed prevention, and water retention all increase by using mulch with other landscaping techniques.
Adding landscape fabric or pre-emergent while having mulch installed reduces the amount of weeds that grow to almost nothing. Landscape fabric helps keep anything from growing up through the mulch. On the other hand, pre-emergent is an application that prevents new seed germination. New, unwanted weeds in the mulched area growing from seed that season will not begin. Pre-emergent applied the appropriate season earns the best results. We suggest only using landscape fabric under stone or rubber mulch. If you or our landscapers want to go back and do an additional planting, the fabric is an obstacle to our plants just like it is against weeds.
A Combined Effort
A combined effort from a pre-emergent application and 2-3 inches of mulch is one of the best, most natural ways to prevent weeds without hurting any plants that are already growing in your garden. Weed growth cannot be stopped completely, or indefinitely. Combating weeds is an ongoing task. Having the right tools and techniques help reduce the amount of time and labor involved in preventing or removing weeds, but nature doesn’t stop, which is where our lawn care services help by staying on top of any issues before they become more costly or problematic.
Thinking about having your current garden beds freshened up? We deliver and install the mulch as well as cut a new edge on each garden bed. Doing this leaves them looking sharp and crisp. Adding contrast color with mulch makes all of the green plants look greener, and color flowers look more vibrant. It helps everything pop!
Colored mulch is a great product. Because of how it is dyed however the color does not stay true forever. Black and red mulch begins to fade in color after about a year, which is the perfect time to freshen up a mulch bed. Throughout the time that the mulch is in the garden, it slowly breaks down. By doing this, it creates a very small amount of nutrients for the soil. It also helps keep our county clean!
Keep Your Plants Looking Their Best
One of the best ways to keep a hedge or shrub healthy is to keep it trimmed. Depending on your level of concern and the species of the plant, shrubs can be manicured three to four times a growing season, trimming once at the minimum.
Keeping a plant trimmed helps promote its health in many ways. It ensures the plant focuses its growth in the proper area, it allows for sunlight and air to reach foliage, and eliminates any dead growth that may sap energy from the plant.
