Why use mulch?
Mulch serves some important purposes.
One of which we already discussed which is to help beautify your yard by adding contrast to the different plants and your grass.
By adding mulch to your landscape the plants, schrubs and bushes will pop and the flower beds will be distinctly seperated from the lawn.
But there are other good reasons to install mulch as well (1).
- Moisture control
- Temperature control
- Adds nutrients
- Weed control
Your plants and trees will thank you during the hottest and driest part of summer if you install mulch around them.
The reason being is that the mulch is made out of wood which absorbs moisture when it rain.
During sunny and hot days the moisture remains in the mulch sheilding your tree and plant roots from drying out. It also keeps moisture from evaporating from the soil.
Mulch acts as a blanket that keeps soil cool in the summer time and warm in the winter.
Its similar to how insulation works in your home.
Adds nutrients to soil
During the year after the mulch has been installed it will start to decompose.
All the nutrients will be returned to the soil.
When mulch is installed over the top of soil it provides a layer of insulation. This layer helps prevent weed growth in a couple different ways.
The first way is by blocking sunlight from reaching the soils surface. So any weed seeds that may be in the soil will not be able to grow without sunlight.
Weed seeds also need soil to grow so when the seeds land in your mulch they can’t reach the soil.
How much does mulch installation cost
There are a few different factors that will determine the cost of installing mulch in your yard.
First we would need to measure the areas where the mulch would be going.
From there we need to figure out how much will be needed.
If your starting from bare soil then 2 1/2″ to 3″ of mulch would be needed.
But if you already have a decent layer of mulch already down then its possible to use a smaller quantity such as 1 1/2″ to 2″.
Next would be the type of mulch used.
We prefer to install natural mulch made from trees instead of the recycled plastics or rubber.
Pricing varies between them so once we know which type of mulch to use then we can get prices for the estimate.
Depending on the quantity needed we can pick it up or have it delivered.
Then we calculate the cost of installation.
Overall the cost is very affordable when it comes to getting mulch installed in your yard.
Prices start as low as a couple hundred dollars.
