As the weather warms up in the spring each year, homeowners are busy trying to get yards ready and looking great. One thing that is often overlooked is mulching beds. Mulch loses an average of 1/2″ of material each year to decomposition and displacement from the beds. A proper depth of 3″ should be maintained for weed control, to protect plant beds and to keep beds looking their best. Remulching and bed edging are great ways to refreshen the look of your landscaping to keep it looking pristine.
There are two main types of mulches; organic and inorganic:
Organic mulches include wood chips, bark mulch, pine straw, compost mixes and other types of plant by-products. Using organic mulches can improve soil fertility and is generally preferred by landscaping professionals. The con is they decompose over time and have to be remulched regularly.
Inorganic mulches do not decompose, so they require less remulching. They include rock, gravel, lava stone, river pebble and pulverized rubber.
