A beautiful and well maintained residential landscape and garden in Central Florida starts with mulch. Aesthetically pleasing and improves the appearance of your home. Mulch of all sizes and colors enhance your flowering plants, trees, shrubs, and vegetable.
Both bark mulch and stones discourage weeds from growing, helps keep the soil at a consistent temperature, and prevent erosion.
