A base of 2-3 inches of shredded mulch around your plants and under your shrubs adds organic matter to the soil which is vital to healthy plant growth.

Organic mulches improve the condition of the soil. As these mulches slowly decompose, they provide organic matter which helps keep the soil loose. This improves root growth, increases the infiltration of water, and also improves the water-holding capacity of the soil. Organic matter is a source of plant nutrients and provides an ideal environment for earthworms and other beneficial soil organisms.

Apply mulch when the weather gets warm. Don’t put mulch down too early in the spring. Give the soil a chance to warm up. Mulching too early will actually slowdown the warming process. Mid to late spring is the best time to apply mulch.

Mulch is available for pick-up or delivery in bulk, bag, and CREATIVE bulkbags.
