Mulch protects your garden; saves you time and money!  According to Dr. Mary Ann Rose, at The Ohio State University, mulch Prevents weed growth; keeps moisture in the soil; cools soil temperature; reduces soil erosion; all while improving the aesthetics of your landscaping and adding to your property value.

Our Mulching Materials
Our mulch is supplied from Akron's Finest Mulch "Made from a premium blend organic materials, mulch is comprised of leaves, shrubs, and other recycled wood. Mulch is clean- no weeds, trash, metal or other debris. In addition, our mulch is triple-shredded. After shredding our mulch is dyed using high-quality, organic colorants. This critical step helps the mulch to hold its color for at least one full season - guaranteed!" -Akron's Finest Mulch 

Timing your Mulch Application
Mulching is recommended during the months of May & June, this allows for the soil to properly warm. Dr. Rose says "Mulching too early can delay drying of soil and subsequent root growth which is dependent upon sufficient aeration" (2001). Sometimes, a second application is needed in the fall, to protect plants from a cold winter. Mulch is best applied before the first frost. 
Mulching Depth
Shredded wood chips should be applied 2 - 2.5 inches deep. While not recommended by us, mulch applied 3-6 inches deep can lead to a host of problems, such as but not limited to, water on the surface; suffocation of plants; mold; and bugs!  Dr. Rose suggests when applying new mulch to an existing base, bring the total depth up to 2- 2.5 inches (2001). Don't over apply!
Landscape Fabric   
Landscape fabric is recommended those that have weeds that won't go away year after year. These geotextiles are woven to prevent weeds from penetrating the surface. Unfortunately, if you have perennial flowers or love to garden, this will not be a viable form of weed control. To learn more about Landscape Fabric (Click Here)
