Thinking about sprucing up your Central Florida residential landscaping this spring? Ground cover is a great place to start. Not only does it protect all your hard work, it also adds beauty.
Choosing between organic mulch or rock for your landscape can be a difficult one. They both help plants, shrubs, and trees by creating a barrier between the soil and the outside elements. You won’t need to water as often because they preserve moisture in the soil and they keep weeds from germinating.
