Both Organic Mulch And Stone Mulch Have Their Advantages

Colorful flower gardenTraditional organic mulch is a great option for flower beds and around trees. It creates a healthier environment for plants by supplying them with valuable nutrients.

It helps insulate the soil in both the cool and extremely hot months and retains moisture, reducing the need for watering. Though it does require a bit more maintenance and needs replaced more often than stones.

Stone mulch is a great option for walkways, driveways, framing a pond, around swimming pools, outdoor fireplaces and cooking areas.  Stones and rocks don’t need as much maintenance as organic mulch and can prevent erosion. They come in a variety of colors and sizes to match your landscape scheme.  Rocks may take more effort to install than organic mulch because it is heavier.

Either type of mulch is an affordable way to give your landscape a make over. Ordering mulch in bulk may seem intimidating, but it’s very convenient and a great way to save money. Nobody wants to carry several heavy bags of mulch from the store to the car and then from the car to where you need it in the yard, it’s a great way so save time and money. Bulk mulch usually cost significantly less than all those bags.
