Why Mulch?

 In Commercial Landscaping Maintenance


Installing mulch or bark can help enhance your business or commercial property curb appeal by giving the area a polished and clean look. After the material is installed, the results are very obvious—it certainly makes a business/commercial property stand out from the rest.

That being said, there are a lot more benefits than solely the aesthetic aspect.

Some of the many additional benefits include:

  • Helps minimize weed growth (especially if install during cold winter months)
  • Protects the soil from erosion by preventing water loss during summers
  • Helps maintain soil temperature year round
  • Reduces amount of watering needed
  • Assists in preventing damage caused by heavy rains
  • Improves fertility and overall health of the soil (depending on quantity and material type used)
  • Organic mulches decay over time and are recycled naturally. There’s no need to remove it, simply apply another layer.
  • If properly maintained, mulch/bark can last more than couple years, ask your commercial landscapers to hard rake/turn over mulch areas every season, so material continues to look fresh

The type of mulch/material to utilize depends on the individual commercial property’s needs, local weather, organic/inorganic preference, depth, etc.—we recommend having a professional visit the property to identify the quantity of mulch/bark needed.
