A landscape bed of bushes and shrubs protected by mulch in Haslett, MI.

Once you install new landscape plants and flowers, you want to make sure they stay protected year-round. Mulch is an earth-friendly type of ground cover that acts as a protective shield around your landscape plantings. As seasons change, weather conditions shift and can potentially cause damage to landscape beds and plants. Laying down a layer of mulch around these outdoor elements can ensure they stay protected and healthy year-round.

Mulch Installation Process

  • Step 1 - Remove Existing Weeds: Removing existing weeds provides a healthy and conducive environment for landscape plants. We generally hand pull large weeds and spray the small ones.
  • Step 2 - Clean Landscape Beds: The weed removal process can dirty up landscape beds so we make sure to remove debris such as dead leaves and twigs.
  • Step 3 - Edge landscape Beds: We want landscape beds to remain nice and neat so we edge them before mulching to give the landscape a more polished look
  • Step 4 - Pre-Emergent Treatment: In order to prevent weed seeds from germinating, we apply a pre-emergent to landscape beds.
  • Step 5 - Mulch Installation: Finally, we install the mulch by hand. To help the soil retain moisture, we install mulch layers between 2 and 4 inches.

Benefits of Using Mulch

  • The best aspect of mulch is its ability to retain moisture because it prevents landscape soil and roots from drying out.
  • In the warmer seasons, scorching temperatures can cause a lack of moisture in landscape flowers and plants but mulch can add a cooling layer to protect plant roots during dry spells.
  • Mulch provides a layer of insulation to plant beds in the winter when plants are more susceptible to frost and freezing damage.
  • A layer of mulch can reduce soil erosion during excessive rainfall by preventing substantial runoff which allows plant beds to better absorb rainwater.
  • Mulch gives landscape beds a more neat and polished appearance, enhancing your current landscape design.
