Want your Central Florida landscape to look amazing this year? Mulching is an affordable and pretty easy way to accomplish a professional looking landscape. 

Reliable Peat CompanyThe first step is to purchase quality mulch from Reliable Peat

Big box or hardware stores seem to have a variety bagged mulch, but how old are these bags and what is exactly in them.

You may never know, until you spread it out on your flower bed and weeds start growing. Or you notice construction debris or worse, hazardous chemicals you can’t see. 

When it comes to mulching, a good rule of thumb is to apply a three inch layer. You may want to remove unwanted weeds before applying mulch, but after that stones or bark mulch acts as a weed barrier for new ones. 

Applying mulch around trees is a little different. Not only does it make your yard beautiful, it helps retain moisture, keep the soil cool on very hot days, and provides vital nutrients. It is important to apply three to four inches of mulch in a circle, but leave a space of about three inches from the base of the trunk. Kind of like a donut around the trunk of the tree. This prevents decay of the bark.
