Mulch & Decorative Stone

There are many benefits of adding mulch to a garden area, other than aesthetics.

These include:

  1. The ability to retain moisture in the soil – Mulch reduces sunlight and wind from reaching topsoil, causing it to dry out.
  2. Reduce winter injury to shrubs and bushes – Mulch keeps shrub and root balls insulated from winter weather.
  3. Contribute to soil health – Organic mulches break down over time and contribute to soil health. This can help if your soil fertility is poor.

In spring, the top layer or excess mulch should be removed before adding additional mulch. It is not meant to remain in place year-round. Too much mulch on an actively growing plant may smother it or encourage a variety of crown rots.

What is Inorganic mulch – Inorganic mulches do not decompose. (Decorative Stone)

The most common types of inorganic mulch are rocks, landscape fabric, and rubber mulch.

What are the benefits of inorganic mulch? The benefit of inorganic mulch is that they may initially cost more, but they are more cost-efficient because they do not need to be reapplied or topped off as frequently as organic mulches.

When installing inorganic mulch (Decorative Stone), landscape fabric should be used. Landscape fabric should NOT be used when installing organic mulch.
