Our landscape mulching services are a great way to keep the plants in your landscape green and healthy.
Our team at Serene Landscape Consulting has been working in the landscape design business for over 30 years, so we are thoroughly familiar with the essential principles of the art and all the challenges involved. A major factor to consider when designing a new landscape is water retention. It’s important to make sure the water doesn’t just evaporate when it hits the soil but instead soaks in so the plants can drink it up through their roots. If the plants in your yard are always drying out, we encourage you to give us a call to make use of our landscape mulching services.
For those who aren’t aware, the purpose of landscape mulching is to help your plants retain water and remain hydrated, as well as provide an attractive medium to fill your plant beds. Our team will add mulch over your flowerbeds and around the roots of your trees, shrubs, and other plants. Then, when you water your plants (and when it rains), a great deal of water will soak into the wood chips. Over time, the water in the mulch will seep into the soil, which will help your plants remain properly hydrated in between waterings. Landscape mulching also helps regulate the soil temperature, keeping the dirt warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer to prevent extreme temperatures from damaging the roots of your plants.

FAQs About Landscape Mulching
For the longest time, mulch has been used in landscape designs. Not only does it help with water retention, but it also makes the design look seamless. With over 30 years of experience in the landscaping industry, we can assist in answering some of your most asked questions about landscape mulching.
What are the advantages of mulching your landscape?
Mulching has several advantages, such as better soil fertility, temperature regulation, moisture retention, weed suppression, and erosion control. Additionally, it improves its visual attractiveness.
What kinds of substances are appropriate for mulching?
Mulching materials fall into two general categories: inorganic and organic. Compost, bark, wood chips, and straw are examples of materials used in organic mulches. The components that make up inorganic mulches can include landscaping fabric, gravel, and stones.
What role does mulch play in weed management?
By obstructing sunlight and keeping weed seeds from penetrating the soil, mulch forms a barrier that stops the growth of weeds. This lessens the rivalry between attractive plants and weeds for water and nutrients.
Does removing old mulch make it essential to put on a fresh layer of mulch?
It’s a good idea to examine the mulch’s current state. Before we apply a fresh layer, we will check to see if the previous layer has crumbled and broken down. This keeps the thatch from building up and improves soil aeration.
Is mulch prone to attracting diseases or pests?
Appropriate mulch depth and routine upkeep can reduce the likelihood that insects or specific diseases will thrive in organic mulch. We avoid problems by not packing mulch up against plant stems.
Can mulch eliminate the need for irrigation?
Mulch reduces evaporation, which helps hold onto soil moisture, but it doesn’t completely replace the requirement for watering. While mulch can help cut water requirements greatly by keeping soil moisture levels more stable, regular irrigation is still important.
