Benefits of including Mulch

Mulching: Our mulching service includes applying mulch to all of the necessary plant beds, flower beds, and trees. All of the mulched areas will receive a fresh layer of 2” of mulch that is spread evenly throughout the bed and in the tree rings.
Cultivation of Mulch: This mulching service cultivates the mulch in order to help promote the exchange of nutrients and water for plant material. Cultivation also helps to rejuvenate the original color of the mulch for aesthetic appeal. We perform mulch cultivation services twice per season, including once in July and again in the fall.

With our residential mulching services, we can apply a variety of types and colors of mulch to your property. Each of these different types of mulch can be used to create a unique look or style. The types of mulch we use for our mulching services include:
Double Ground Hardwood Mulch
Triple Ground Mulch
Dyed Brown Mulch
Dyed Red Mulch
Dyed Black Mulch
Cedar Mulch
Rubber Mulch
Pine Nuggets
