About Mulch Installation
Having mulch installed is an important step towards taking better care of your property. Mulching prevents weeds, conserves moisture, and helps to maintain an orderly, professional appearance. In many cases, watering becomes unneeded after mulching. Paul’s Landscaping recommends having a 2 to 3 inch application of mulch installed every year.
Preparation Before Mulching
Weeding should be done before mulching. Weeding is a crucial step before mulch
application if any weeds are present. Without having the weeds removed, they
frequently grow through the mulch, which destroys many of the benefits of having mulch
installed. It is also recommended to have Spring Cleanup prior to mulch installation if
needed. Generally, it is recommended to have edging done at the same time unless
a permanent edge has been installed already.
Benefits of Mulching
One benefit of mulching is that over time, as the mulch naturally decays, mulch adds
nutrients and structure to the soil. While mulch installation has many benefits, mulch
installation isn’t something just anyone knows how to do. All too often, well-intentioned,
but inexperienced people heap the mulch around the base of the the tree, almost so that
it looks like a volcano. Mulch should always be kept an inch or two away from the base
of shrub and tree trunks, or it can actually cause the bark to rot, frequently causing tree
or shrub death. Paul’s Landscaping of NY, LLC makes sure to follow industry best
practice and not apply mulch around tree trunks.
There are several different types of mulch. The most common type Paul’s Landscaping
installs is black mulch, but Paul’s Landscaping can install other mulches, such as brown
and red mulch as well. We have the capability of handling mulch installation jobs of all
