Plant Care

Mulching

Mulching

Mulching helps create a uniform and tidy landscape. More importantly, it helps the soil hold moisture, protects roots from drastic winter temperature changes, and restricts weed growth in the plant beds. For best results, apply a 2" to 3" depth of mulch. Be careful not to let mulch build to more than 3" to 4" depth from season to season because this will smother feeder roots and may cause harm to the trunks of trees and shrubs.

Note: Some plants require more specialized care. If you are in doubt, we suggest you consult your local garden center for detailed reference materials or hire a professional maintenance service to maintain your landscape.
