Mulching is one of the best things you can do to protect and enhance your property’s landscape. Not only does organic mulch give your landscape a well-groomed appearance, it also offers the added benefit of enriching and improving the soil. Properly mulched gardens are healthier, have fewer weeds and are more drought-resistant so they require less water, weeding and pest control. Have you ever taken a walk in the woods and looked down at the forest floor? That’s organic mulch! It’s the perfect environment to support all types of plant life. Jim Seckelmann, leading expert and owner of The Mulch Center comments, “We utilize the wood debris generated from local tree care contractors. We simply speed up this natural process.”
