Why is mulch important

At Eagle Lawn Care Services, we recognize the importance of mulch in maintaining a healthy and beautiful garden. As a leading lawn care company, we are committed to providing our clients with expert advice and solutions that are tailored to their specific needs. Mulch is a protective layer of organic materials, like bark, leaves, or wood chips, that is applied to the surface of soil. It serves several important functions in the garden that include:

Firstly, mulch helps to retain moisture in the soil, by slowing down the evaporation process. This is especially crucial during hot summer months, as it ensures that plants receive the necessary water to survive and thrive.

Secondly, mulch is an effective weed suppressant, by blocking sunlight from reaching the soil surface, it makes it difficult for weed seeds to germinate. This means less time and energy spent on weeding, and more time enjoying your beautiful garden.

Thirdly, mulch helps regulate soil temperature, insulating the soil from extreme heat and cold. This protection can help to make plant roots more resilient and ensure they survive during extreme weather conditions.

Fourthly, mulch is also effective in controlling soil erosion, by stabilizing the soil surface and reducing the impact of heavy rain and wind. This helps to prevent soil erosion and keep your garden looking neat and tidy.

Fifthly, as it breaks down over time, mulch can add important organic matter to the soil, which improves soil health and fertility. This means that your plants will have access to the necessary nutrients to grow strong and healthy.

Lastly, mulch also improves the appearance of your garden, by creating a uniform and neat look. It can also act as a complement to the colors of the flowers and trees, adding to the overall aesthetic appeal of your landscape.

Do I need mulch?

At Eagle Lawn Care Services, we understand the importance of maintaining a lush and vibrant property. Mulching is a vital aspect of this, as it helps to retain moisture in the soil, suppress weed growth, add nutrients to the soil, and improve the overall appearance of your property. However, the frequency of mulching can be a tricky question to answer.

The truth is, it depends on various factors, such as the type of mulch used, the climate of your area, and the type of plants you have. For instance, straw or leaves may need to be reapplied more frequently than wood chips or bark. But, as a general rule of thumb, we recommend reapplying mulch every 6 to 12 months.

But, it’s not just about timing, it’s also important to keep an eye out for signs that it’s time to reapply mulch. For example, if the mulch layer is less than 2 inches thick, or if the color of the mulch has faded significantly, it’s probably time to add a fresh layer. Similarly, if the mulch has started to break down and turn into soil, or if weeds are starting to grow through the mulch, it’s a clear indication that it’s time to reapply. And lastly, if the soil is dry and doesn’t retain moisture as well as it used to, this could be another sign to reapply mulch.

At Eagle Lawn Care Services, we’re passionate about creating and maintaining beautiful properties, and we’re here to help you with all your mulching needs. Whether you need advice on the best type of mulch to use, or you need a team to come and reapply it for you, we’re here to help.
