Mulch is a big part of any landscape here in Central Florida. To take advantage of all the benefits organic bark much has to offer, it should be replenished every year. Now is a great time to get outside, before the heat sets in. But that’s not the only reason why you should mulch.

Reason #1: Mulch Keeps Your Plants Healthy

All plants, flowers, trees, and shrubs need nutrients to stay healthy and beautiful. Organic mulch slowly releases vital nutrients into the soil. Mulch insulates the soil, keeping the roots cool in our heat. It also helps keep moisture in the soil. Research shows mulch can actually retain 70% more water than soil that has not been mulched.

Reason #2: Mulch Creates An Eye Catching Landscape 

Mulch adds aesthetics and curb appeal to your landscape. Mulch comes in a variety of colors and textures. A light colored mulch can set make the color of plants and flowers pop, and create a modern, clean look, or a dark mulch can contrast a light colored home and have a natural, sharp look. 

Reason #3: Mulch Helps The Environment 

Bag mulch can cost twice as much as bulk mulch and you have the added convince of it being delivered to your home. Instead of going to the store and dragging all those bags to the car and then unloading them once you get home.Buying mulch in bulk also reduce the amount of trash that ends up in the landfill.

Just think, it takes 140 bags to cover 10 yards of mulch. When you add it up, buying in bulk can make a big difference in the environment. Mulch can also save you money on pest control because it makes your landscape more resistant to diseases and pests by adding organic matter to the soil.
