The key to Central Florida’s sustainable landscapes, gardens, and green spaces is mulch. Selecting the right mulch can create a beautiful environment, as well as healthier plants and soil. 

“The potential, direct benefits of any landscape mulch material can be grouped into four general categories,” according to the Master Gardener, Washington State University.

Soil benefits

• improve structure

• enhance gas transfer

• enhance water infiltration and

retention

• prevent erosion and compaction • moderate temperature

Plant benefits

• provide nutrients

System benefits

• suppress pathogens and pests

• enhance beneficial organisms

• increase biodiversity

• neutralize pollutants

Human benefits

• economic

• aesthetic

• ease of application

Mulch provides a better growing environment 

Organic large bark mulch outperforms many other materials on sustainability, reducing weeds, controlling temperature, and moisture retention. They also create a diverse soil environment, enabling your plants to be more resistant to disease and environmental disturbances.

Erosion is often a big issue here in Central Florida. Bark mulch can provide a barrier, protecting the soil from wind and rain. Mulch also prevents the elements from depleting the soil of vital nutrients plants need to thrive. 

The best place to purchase mulch, stones, and rocks, is from a local source. Buying in bulk is a great way to make your next landscape project more affordable.
