Mulching & Pine Needles

Mulch vs. No Mulch

Mulching & Pine Needles

Mulch is both lovely and practical. The benefits of this landscaping product include moisture retention, reduced soil temperature and limited weed growth. Studies have been done comparing landscapes using mulch to those with bare soil.  In mulched yards, moisture percentages were almost double those of bare soil.  Temperatures taken during the summer showed an 8 to 13 degree reduction when mulch was used.  Mulching reduces time spent weeding by almost 75%. Certain plants require you to keep the mulch off of them for their health while others at times require complete coverage.

We offer mulch installation service sold on site or delivered and spread on your property.  Choice from the following mulch options:
