Did you know?  Information for you.

MULCH

ORGANIC vs ROCK vs NOTHING

MULCH - Is anything used on top of the ground as a covering  (wood, bark, rubber, rock, pebbles, etc) 

 ORGANIC SHREDDED MULCH      

  • Comes in fine ground and chunky (both are fine - NOT BARK)

  • Comes in different colors - Adding color and appeal to your design

  • Discourages weed growth

  • Holds moisture reducing the amount of water that evaporates from your soil, reducing watering needs

  • Insulates plants against hot temperatures and sun

  • Protects against weather elements and cold  (Mulch after 1st FROST)

                  THE CONS

  • Does have to be refreshed or replaced every year or two

  • Old Mulch must be removed before applying new Mulch

  • Can attract insects and spiders

 BARK MULCH

                  THE CONS

  • JUST DON'T DO IT

  • Robs nutrients from plants due to it taking too long to break down.  Disrupts soil pH balance

  • Blocks sunlight from plant roots

  • Floats away if heavy rains

  • Uses too much Nitrogen. Creates Acid environment.

  • Does not look appealing.  Big chunks. Not smooth

 RUBBER MULCH

  • Does not degrade or loose color (Lasts forever)

  • Will not attract insects  (good for next to house)

  • Discourages fungal growth as well as weeds

  • Very low maintenance

  • Does hold soil moisture

  • Rubber Mulch is NOT toxic to Pets or Humans

                    THE CONS

  • DO NOT use in Gardens

  • Does not look real.  Looks more like rock

  • Sometimes holds too much heat (constant direct sun)

  • Does not stay moist like Organic Mulch; however, it does keep    in ground moisture

  • THE BAD - Toxic to some plants and when breaking down, it releases heavy metals and chemical toxins into the soil and water

 STONE MULCH

  • Decorative gravel or rocks ranging in size from pea-size to golf ball size, often sourced from river beds

  • Available in a wide variety of sizes, colors, textures and shapes

  • Lava Rock and Pumice Stone are best for water retention (porous)

                    THE CONS               

  • DO NOT use in Gardens

  • Need to use landscape fabric underneath

  • Sometimes hold too much heat (direct sun)

  • Not good around plants/trees that prefer acidic environment.  Rock creates an alkaline environment. 

  • Apply pre-emergent herbicide (for weeds) every year in early spring. And again when weeds come up.

 NOTHING - JUST DIRT

  • Weeds and other undesirables grow easily

  • No water retention. Soil dries out quickly

  • No weather protection for Plants

  • No nutrients from decomposing wood mulch (Organic Mulch, Bark, etc)

  • Does NOT look aesthetically appealing.  Does not have a groomed look.
