Thinking about getting outside this weekend and working in your landscape? Mulch is a great and affordable way to freshen up your yard. But there are many types of mulch on the market, what kind should you choose? Pine bark or stones? What color will look best, red or natural chocolate? White marble chips or cedar bark rock? How many bags will you need or is it more cost efficient to purchase in bulk and have it delivered?

Each type of mulch was created with specific function and performance in your garden or landscape. Choosing the right mulch for your project will make your yard look amazing and your plants happy.

Organic Mulches

This includes pine bark of different sizes, chocolate, cypress, and red mulch. Organic wood mulch has many advantages, they keep your plants cool in our scorching heat, the organic matter will absorb water and keep the soil in moist. Through the process of decomposing will nourish and feed the plants. This also means you will have to replace the mulch over time. Colored mulch is a great way to add an accent and holds up, brightening up your landscape, which means you may not have to replace quite as often.

Landscape Stones and Rocks

Rocks are very attractive, they are heavy so they won’t get washed away in a strong storm and they don’t need to be replaced very often. They discourage weed growth, less prone to mold, protects plant roots, clean appearance, and prevents erosion.

Marble chips: Natural elegance, beautiful shades of bright white with a bit of sparkle, and durability.

Seminole chip is a decorative rock that is unique to Florida. The signature reddish, brown color has the elegance of natural stone for an unforgettable landscape. Great for around a pond or flower bed.
