  • Mulch has become a landscape staple, almost to a fault when it is over applied, smothering roots and girdling trunks.  
    When done properly, it can help to suppress weeds, retain moisture and moderate temperature.
    These things can be achieved using a variety of materials, but which type of mulch suits your needs best?
    Predominately we use organic materials for mulching.  
    Organic mulches include plant or animal-derived materials like wood chips, pine needles, tree bark, grass clippings, composted manure, and worm castings.
