What is Mulching?

Mulching places a layer of organic or inorganic material around the plants &
over the soil in a flower bed or line of shrubs.

In addition to an effective form of weed control, it is one of the best ways to retain more water
in your landscaping during droughts & significant Texas heat.

What are the Benefits of Mulching?

Many people think that mulching is just a method for controlling weeds, but it’s actually one of the best ways to achieve an attractive and damage-resistant lawn. A few of the benefits of mulching include:

• Mulching helps hold in soil moisture in hot Texas lawns.
• Mulching prevents erosion in the soil.
• Mulching minimizes compaction during the rainy season.
• Mulching helps to keep an even temperature in the soil.
• Mulching can increase the number of nutrients in the soil.
• Mulching helps your landscape maintain an even and attractive appearance.

What is in the mulch that you use?2022-01-21T17:11:44-06:00

We use a double ground (not big and chunky) hardwood tree bark. Not ground-up wood. Because of this, it contains a great deal more nutrition for your plants. As it decomposes it greatly improves the soil in your flower beds and or gardens!

How is bed mulching good for the environment?2022-01-21T17:12:15-06:00

Bed Mulching helps conserve water which has a great environmental impact!

By mulching your landscape, you use less water on your plants. This contributes to reducing loads of water that American’s use on lawns. How does mulch conserve water? Mulching cools the soil and, as a result, the roots remain cool year-round. Cooler roots have a higher tolerance to the drought of summer and the frosts of winter. Additionally, cooler soil means less watering since the water does not evaporate as quickly within cool soil. In return, there is less need for water as the ground is able to hold onto water for longer!
