The Mulch Store

Mulch is used primarily in planting beds for its aesthetic appeal and more importantly for the health of the plants in the beds. Mulch should be kept to an approximate 3” depth to help moderate the soil temperatures so that they stay cooler in the summer months and they don’t freeze and thaw as quickly around the roots in the spring and fall when the frost goes in and out of the soil. It is also a great product to help keep moisture in the soils, deter the growth of weed seeds, and also add organics to the soil as it decomposes over time.

Typically shredded mulches work better for weed prevention, on slopes, and in areas where water is encountered or wind blows more consistently across the landscape. Chips and Pine Bark will usually last longer than shredded mulches and are easier to walk on, but they can move around from environmental impacts much more easily. It is best to stay away from rock, especially when around more delicate deciduous plants and perennials because it can absorb the heat of the sun in the summer putting a lot of stress on the plants to survive.
