By now your Central Florida landscaping may be looking a little rough. It’s been through a lot this year, the intense heat, excessive rain, dry season, and damage from the hurricanes, all took their toll.

That once thriving landscape you put so much work into last spring has seen better days. The cooler weather is a great time to work on the yard, but you’re not sure where to start.

Clearing out all all the fallen leaves and dead debris is a good start. Then for the icing on the cake, lay down some fresh mulch. Not only will this help your existing plants make it through the winter, by spring the soil will be healthier and fertilized, ready for the new season.

If you’ve walked down the mulch isle in the garden center, you know there are several options.  From the type of material, organic or inorganic, to color and texture, there is a lot to consider. But the easiest way to get quality mulch at an affordable price, without the hassle of going to the store and lugging all those bags home, is to purchase it in bulk and have it delivered from Reliable Peat.  Not only will you save money, you will get superior mulch.

Types of Mulch to Consider

Organic Bark Mulches:  They come in several different sizes and colors, they are readily available and very economical. Organic bark mulch helps moisture in the soil and reduces evaporation. Acts as a buffer against environmental elements.  Prevents weeds from invading the garden and erosion from rain and wind. It also breaks down and releases vital nutrients for healthy plants.

Inorganic Mulches: This includes stones such as river rock, marble chips, pea rock, marble chips, cedar bark rock, seminole chip, and crushed concrete. Since they don’t break down, they will not have to be replaced as often as organic mulch. They are great for paths and walkways because they compact into the soil make them easier to walk on.
