Tired of spending your weekends working on the landscaping in your Central Florida yard. Weeding, mowing, edging,  trimming, and watering, is not only time consuming, between the heat and the bugs it can be down right miserable.

Organic mulch and stones are a great alternative to so much yard work, while adding new life to your yard.

Whether it’s adding mulch and stones to a flower bed to reduce weeds, creating a walkway, or even a play or sitting area, to reduce mowing and maintenance. It adds color and texture for aesthetics, improves draining, and adds value to your property.

Mulch is an unsung hero, according to the Spruce.

“Assuming you’re not some kind of workaholic, sooner or later you’ll come to recognize mulch as one of the unsung heroes of landscaping. It’s highly portable, malleable. If you have a problem area for which there seems to be no other solution, mulch is probably your answer — especially if you need a quick and easy solution. An application of mulch can reduce your watering needs significantly. Mulch also suppresses weeds, making yard care much easier.”
