The traditional pine mulch many homeowners in Central Florida use in both their landscaping and gardens help ensure their plants stay well nourished and healthy. Lately, many of them are finding the benefits of stones, such as river rock and granite. Which has many of our clients here at Reliable Peat asking, which is better for their landscape, organic mulch or stones?

While organic mulch, pine bark, chocolate, cypress, and red mulch are known for decomposing and enriching the soil, controlling moisture levels, encouraging healthy drainage, and regulating soil temperature. They also decompose over time, making it necessary to replace them every couple of years.

sam_0639Stones have their own have their own list of benefits. Topping the list, stones don’t attract insects or pests, and they don’t need replacing. They don’t decay, rot, or decompose. They also, don’t get washed or blown away in extreme weather conditions. They are still able to regulate soil temperature, helping the plant roots from our extreme heat and occasional cold temperatures.

Stones mulch comes in a variety of colors and sizes, brown river rock, marble chips, white river rock, granite, pea rock, cedar bark rock, even crushed concrete for an economical project.
