Ovals-residential-mulch Beautification of your property is just one of the many reasons for incorporating mulch into your landscape. At Green Ridge Landscaping, Inc we will evaluate your gardens and recommend the best mulch for your specific need. Besides adding a pleasing finishing touch to your plantings, mulch offers a variety of real benefits.

Mulching can be one of the most beneficial things you can do for your soil and your plants. If you have not considered mulching your garden in the past, you may want to reconsider. Mulches are a labor saving device for the gardener. A layer of mulch will help prevent the germination of many weed seeds, reducing the need for cultivation or the use of herbicides. Mulches also help moderate the soil temperature and retain moisture during dry weather, reducing the need for watering. Mulches protect the soil from the impact of raindrops and helps keep plants clean by reducing the splash of soil onto leaves and helps infiltration of the rainfall into the garden. Mulches also can be used to enhance the look of your garden. Many bark mulches provide uniformly rich brown color that contrasts with the plants. The mulch helps keep plants clean by reducing the splash of soil onto leaves during rainstorms, and helps infiltration of the rainfall into the garden.

Here at Green Ridge Inc., we highly recommend installing organic mulch in all your planting beds. Each type of mulch has its own unique benefits. Natural bark and root mulches decay at a rapid rate and therefore provide nutrients to soil and improves its ability to hold water. Colored mulch will typically maintain its vibrant color for a longer period compared to natural mulch, which usually turns gray after a few months and has superior weed suppression. Regardless of the type of mulch you choose, all of our mulches are 100% people, pets and plants safe, as well as being environmentally friendly.
