Q: Why should I mulch my landscape?
A: Mulching is one of the most important things you can do for your landscape. It insulates the root systems of your plants, aids in moisture retention, decreases the number of weeds in your beds, adds organic matter to the root zone, and makes your home and landscape look more tidy and finished.
Q: Does Designer Landscape install mulch?
Q: What kind of mulch does Designer Landscape use?
A: We offer a variety of mulch products, including double-ground hardwood, brown dyed hardwood, cedar, and red dyed hardwood. (Others available upon request.)
Q: How often should I put new mulch down?
A: We recommend mulching your landscape once each year. If you are consistent with dyed mulch, you can apply mulch every other year, as it breaks down slower and holds its color longer than non-dyed.
Q: How deep should my mulch be spread?
A: On new landscapes, it’s important to establish a good mulch layer from the start. Apply mulch about 3-4” deep on new beds. As it gets rained on, the mulch will compact, forming a dense cover for your plants’ roots and act as a weed barrier over recently disturbed landscape bed soil.
