Mulch

To mulch or not to mulch is that the question?

Bark mulch has many benefits. It is a terrific weed deterrent and soil amender. Bark Mulch ¬†helps to improve water retention during the summer and moderates soil temperature. When applied directly onto the soil surface of your beds, we recommend a minimum depth of 4″. Any weed seeds that do happen to blow in are very easily removed. As the bark composts it replenishes the soil and keeps it from compacting. A light raking and a light topping as needed, will keep your beds healthy and beautiful.
