How to Maintain Your Mulch Year Round

Maintain Your MulchYou’ve spread your fresh mulch at a nice even depth of four inches around your garden, flower beds, trees, and shrubs. You step back and proudly marvel how good it all looks. Then you say to yourself, “I wish it could look this good year-round.” That’s a legitimate concern because the weather does take its toll, even if you are using the best mulch in Cincinnati.

 

Mulch is one of our specialties at Perfect Cut Tree Service, and we’re happy to provide advice so you can maintain yours.

 

For starters, we’ll tell you that mulch doesn’t need a lot of attention, but it will benefit from a bit of upkeep. Ideally, you will mulch in the spring and the fall.

 

One of the first things you’re going to want to do is check the depth as it should be between two and three inches. If it’s less, add more.

 

Make sure you remove weeds that poke their way through to the surface, and this is another case where you may have to add a bit more. This also helps maintain the color and fresh appearance of mulch.

 

Rake your mulch a couple of times per year to prevent clumps from forming and to keep it from compacting.

 

If you follow these simple steps, you will have the best mulch in Cincinnati, and your plants and garden will thank you for it.

Types of Mulch and How to Choose the Right One for Your Garden

Choose the Right MulchGardening is fun and can be quite involved depending on how much effort and research you put into it. For example, did you know there are various types of mulch? Most people likely figure there is just one and are happy to apply it to their gardens and flower beds. At Perfect Cut Tree Service, we know all about mulch, and in this post, we’ll give you information to know all about it too.

 

Let’s start by defining mulch. It is material applied to gardens and landscaping features to slow weed growth, improve soil quality, reduce evaporation, and improve appearance. It’s also handy for playgrounds as a safety material under slides and swings.

 

There are two basic types: organic, such as bark mulch and shredded wood mulch, and inorganic, which includes pea gravel, small stones, or sand. If you need a lot, your best bet is a mulch delivery in Cincinnati. That’s much easier than making many trips yourself.

 

Organic mulch is the leading choice because it improves the soil quality by adding nutrients as it breaks down. On the other hand, inorganic is ideal for slopes and areas that face a lot of runoff as it’s resistant to erosion.

 

Whatever you choose, make sure you have enough to get the job done. It is recommended to spread mulch about three inches deep. We suggest you schedule a mulch delivery in Cincinnati to meet your needs.
