Let’s Talk About Mulch – Good Advice

I was driving down the road today and notice.., not for the first time.., one of our neighbors’ landscaping.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t looking at it admirably, I was looking at it as “yikes.”No Edging Blocks

When you decide to get new mulch for your landscaping beds, please, don’t just load new mulch on top of the old.  You actually need to scrape the old weathered mulch from the beds and replace it with new mulch.  If you don’t, you start creating a “mound effect” which will always spill the mulch out into the yard whenever we get a heavy rain.

When you buy new mulch, they always recommend that you add 2-3″ thick.  That doesn’t mean that you should add 2-3″ on top of existing.  That means that you should scrape the old stuff out – dispose of it, and replace with 2-3″ of new mulch.

Many people don’t think about this, but many of our customers have this vecurb1ry complaint – “My mulch spills into my grass!”  This doesn’t necessarily mean you need borders – but perhaps you need a little maintenance instead.

However, borders are, in my opinion of course, the best way to go!  Contact us today for your Free Estimate for bordering your home and keeping it safer to walk on your sidewalks and driveways.407-957-9208
