Many homeowners use mulch to enhance the health, vitality, and appearance of their backyard lawn or garden.
The great news is that black mulch in Leduc from suppliers such as Whyte Ave Landscape is a very simple and affordable way to improve your lawn. Mulch in general helps add perfect finishing touches to any landscaping project. Whyte Ave Landscape has a large selection of black mulches and bark chips to choose from to meet your unique requirements. We offer mulch by the bag or by the yard. Both are available for either pick-up or delivery.
The main reason why you’ll want to apply mulch to your Leduc lawn is to help the soil retain more moisture. The strong Alberta summer sun can quickly cause the moisture to evaporate from the soil after you water, causing your plants to wilt and forcing you to work harder.
Black mulch allows water to penetrate deeper into the soil and locks the moisture in for a longer period of time as well. Mulch also provides a great solution for slowing down weed growth. And also for protecting your plant roots from the damaging effects of extremely hot or cold temperatures.
On top of that as organic mulches slowly decompose, they can introduce important nutrients to the soil. Finally, mulch adds more colour and texture to your lawn, helping to enhance your home’s landscaping and overall curb appeal.
Different Types of Mulch
There are different types of mulch you can use on your lawn in Leduc. Mulch can be made out of just about any material, both organic and inorganic, that serves the purposes described above. Bark is a popular choice, as it is slow to decay and provides a good source of carbon for your plants when it does. Cedar mulch helps at resisting decay as well, and it is often chosen both for its look and its pleasant smell. Some types of mulches are specifically dyed uniform colours, such as black mulch, for landscaping considerations.
Procedure to Use Mulch
Applying mulch couldn’t be easier. Plus, it’s actually kind of fun to do. All you have to do is simply lay it down on the soil surface. That’s it – no extra prep work needs to be done to the mulch itself that makes the work so satisfyingly fun. You will, however, want to prep your soil a little by pulling all of the weeds out of the area first, making sure to completely dig out the roots. Then, using a shovel, transport small mulch piles around your plants and trees.
Finally, use a rake to spread the mulch out in an even layer across the soil. A depth of around three to four inches should be sufficient to prevent future weed growth, so add more mulch if needed.
