What exactly is landscape mulch? Isn’t all mulch pretty much the same? No! Mulch is an organic product used to protect and adorn the garden and landscape. Mulch nourishes and improves the soil, keeps the soil moist, while keeping the roots cool in the Central Florida heat.
Aesthetic is another benefit of using mulch. When your plants and trees are surrounded with a black or brown mulch, the colors of the flowers and plant life are much more radiant. They also help keep pests and insects away from your garden and plants without having to use chemical pesticides.

Making them the perfect medium for all your landscape and garden projects.
