Benefits of Hiring Schollmeyer Landscaping, Inc. for Mulching
Mulching is by far one of the best things you could do for your soil. It’s a great way of recycling organic material, and it’s incredibly effective in helping your soil reach its best potential. Some of the many great things landscape mulch can do for your trees and plants include:
- Regulating moisture levels: Mulch helps insulate the soil, which helps it retain the water it needs to grow. Additionally, it absorbs any extra moisture, preventing flooding.
- Insulating your soil: Mulch provides important insulation in all types of weather. During the cold winter months, it acts as a blanket to prevent the soil from freezing. In the heat of summer, it offers protection from the sun’s rays and stops the soil from drying out.
Depending on the type of garden mulch you choose, you may also receive a range of additional benefits. We offer a variety of mulch types and services, and we’ll help you choose the mulch application that’s right for your soil.
Types of Mulch
There are two basic types of mulch: organic and inorganic. Organic mulches are made from natural materials (bark, tree leaves, wood chips) and eventually break down, while inorganic mulches are factory-made (pulverized rubber, geotextile materials) and require no re-application. They both have their pros and cons. For instance, organic bark mulch provides more nutrients to the soil, but has to re–applied. Meanwhile, inorganic mulch is low-maintenance but doesn’t break down and turn into nutrients. We’ll use our expertise to examine your soil and offer suggestions on the best mulch installation for you.
