    Putting a little makeup on the landscape.

    Mulch is any type of material that is spread or laid over the surface of the soil as a covering. It is used to retain moisture in the soil, suppress weeds, keep the soil cool and make the garden bed look more attractive. Organic mulches also help improve the soil’s fertility, as they decompose.

    Organic mulch will decompose and have to be replaced more frequently, however in the process it will also improve your soil’s fertility and, of course, its organic content. Generally the dryer and woodier the mulch, the slower it will decompose and the less nutrients it will give to the soil.

    We mulch our gardens in the spring to suppress weeds, retain moisture and feed and warm the soil. The mulch that we use is a blended mulch of 100% organic recycled material which includes recycled leaves, twigs and grass that is processed then screened into a fine dark leaf mulch.

    Not only is mulch good for your soil it appeals to our aesthetics.
