Mulch is usually applied at the beginning of the growing season, and often reapplied as needed. Initially it serves to warm the soil by retaining heat accumulated during the day, but lost at night. Mulch application at this time, allows early seeding and transplanting of plants and flowers and stimulates faster growth. As the season progresses, mulch stabilizes soil temperature and moisture, and actually works to prevent sunlight from germinating weed seeds.
In landscaping, mulch is used as protective cover over the soil to retain moisture and reduce erosion and to also provide nutrients, and suppress weed growth and seed germination. Mulch simulates leaf cover usually found in nature. The types of mulches used in Texas landscaping, are always determined by a variety of factors. We carry and install what best suits landscapes in our area.
We consider availability, cost, and appearance, and the effect it has on the soil in the created landscaped environment. It also includes chemical reactions, PH balance, durability,combustibility, rate of decomposition, how clean it is, because some mulch can be of inferior quality.
