When is the Best Time?

Mulch protects your plants from heat and preserves moisture. So the best time to apply it is after the spring rains, but before summer heat arrives. Mulch generally has a shelf life of less than a year. Regardless of what kind you select, it’s an annual expense that should be included in your landscape budget. Think of it as additional protection for the investment you have already made in your home and lawn.

How Much Do I Need?

If you already have mulch on your beds and just need a fresh layer, then less will do. A new landscaping project will require more to get great color, help with drainage, root insulation and protect against erosion. Too much mulch can also be a problem, as it can keep important nutrients from the plant roots. Our landscaping experts at J & S Landscaping can offer a recommendation based on your particular lawn and our particular climate.

What Kind?

Some others make their choice based on properties like texture and ability to preserve moisture. We have a several choices of mulch in a variety of colors.
