Mulch:


  • Protects the soil from erosion

  • Reduces compaction from the impact of heavy rains

  • Conserves moisture, reducing the need for frequent watering

  • Maintains a more even soil temperature

  • Prevents weed growth



In the Landscape, Mulch blown installation provides a "finished" look to the project. Best mulch to use is organic bark mulch. The more natural the ingredients in the mulch the better it is for the plant materials living in that garden. Lots and lots of comments on the shopping plaza mulch looking most colorful throughout the season. Our experience has it that the more colorful the mulch, the more harm it does to the plants.

Next time you see colorful bright mulch, look closely at the plants and see if they look healthy. The correct landscape design has plant materials, color and texture as part of the mainstream of the design. No intentions on a colorful bed design. Use bark or organic mulches to improve the condition of the soil. As these mulches slowly decompose, they provide organic matter which helps keep the soil well oxygenated. This has beneficial factors for the soil condition and plant materials including:


  • Improved root growth

  • Ease of infiltration of water

  • Greater moisture holding capacity

  • Less compaction of the soils



It is best to use the local nurseries and garden centers for choosing mulching materials as these people plant in it everyday.




Tired of wheel barrowing mulch around? Use a Mulch blower. Mulch blown installation is ideal for those hard to reach places, hillsides and delicate perennial beds. The blower has grinder wheels at the base that fluffs up the mulch as it goes through the hoses and lands onto the beds.

Your choice of mulches can be Bark mulch, Spruce mix, Cedar, hemlock and playchips.

Use Barretta Enterprises Professional for your next mulching job.
