We love our Michigan winters, but enough is enough! It’s time to thaw out our yards and get ready for warmer temperatures and outdoor living. A lot of us enjoy turning over our yards this time of year–pulling out all the old foliage and making room for the buds and blooms of another outdoor season.
After you’ve pulled the last bit of debris and planted the last bulb, don’t forget to set of all your hard work with a fresh batch of mulch. New, bright mulch is the final step of spring lawn and garden preparation.
When is the Best Time?
Mulch generally has a shelf life of less than a year. So the best time to apply it is after the spring rains, but before summer heat arrives.
It protects your plants from heat and preserves moisture. 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 of Mulch?
What kind of mulch you put on your lawn is largely a personal choice. Some homeowners like being able to choose a particular color. 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. Contact one of our “lawn-scaping” experts so we can answer all your questions.
