Adding mulch to a garden bed, yard, or trees serves multiple purposes both for the enrichment of the plants and for the aesthetic clean look it has. Mulch can be applied around trees, plants, bushes, shrubs, flowers, and along grass. At American Tree & Turf, Inc. we offer multiple types of mulch in different colors wood type and texture.

The Benefits of Mulch
Mulch is a layer of material applied to the surface of soil. Reasons for applying mulch include conservation of soil moisture, improving fertility and health of the soil, reducing weed growth and enhancing the visual appeal of any area.
How To Lay Mulch
We recommend 2 to 3 inches of mulch, too much mulch is not good. A common issue is creating a “mulch Volcano” around tree trunks, this is not a good practice and will eventually lead to the death of the trees and shrubs done in this manner. The correct method of mulching a tree is to create a saucer around the tree trunk, with no mulch touching the crown area of a tree or bush.
Before you lay mulch you can use a barrier called landscape cloth that prevents weed growth from under the mulch but still allows water to penetrate and saturate the soil. Less weeds means more water and nutrients for the flowers, plants, bushes, and trees.
