How Does Mulch Help My Landscape in Lake Zurich?
Are you wondering why you should even bother putting mulch down around your trees and plants? Let's explain the basics. Our mulch is a natural product made of wood chips combined with other organic materials. This thick combination of ingredients is usually packed with good things that plants need, like nitrogen. Over time, the mulch decomposes and the nutrients combine with the soil beneath it. We use mulch around trees, in garden beds, and on playgrounds. Here are some things that mulch does:
Plants and trees love the good nutrients that mulch gives them as it decomposes. Mulch is good for soil that has been over-processed; it puts the nutrients that it lacks back into it.
Save valuable time and resources! Mulch keeps water from evaporating out of the soil, which keeps your plants' roots happy for a long time. It also helps soak up the rain, so the rainwater doesn't run right into your drainage area.
Mulch acts as a thick scarf around the base of plants and trees. Cold snaps can kill an unprotected plant, but mulched plants have a higher chance of surviving the sudden freeze.
Give your trees a longer life-expectancy by protecting the health of their root systems with mulch. The mulch is a barrier against extreme weather, invasive plants, and other causes of root disease.
Weeds have a really hard time pushing through a layer of mulch. Keep your plants and tree bases weed-free with a barrier of mulch. This makes your landscape easier to maintain, and it helps your plants grow stronger because they don't have to compete against weeds.
We love the way perfectly-installed mulch adds contrast and organization to a landscape. Improve the way your yard looks with a fresh layer of mulch around your trees and plants.
Your Lake Zurich landscape can benefit from new mulch. It's good for so many reasons: plant health, protection, and weed-reduction. You will like it just as much as your plants!
What Kind of Mulch Do I Need?
Great question. We have a menu of mulches to serve different purposes. Our professionals mix up these different mulch types for perfect installation no matter what kind of landscape we're working on.
Certified playground mulch
Playground mulch is composed of softer wood chips, so children who leap off swings and fly down slides experience a nice, soft landing.
Premium Bark Mulch
Our special McGinty Mulch blend consists of dark, hardwood chips for an attractive, healthy mulch. It serves well for putting nutrients into the soil, and it protects roots from the cold. This mulch also prevents moisture from evaporating under the hot summer sun, which means you won't have to water your mulched plants as often. The dark color makes a nice contrast against the greens of your landscape.
Stump Mulch from Local Trees
If you ever have to get a tree stump removed from your landscape, we'll grind up the stump and save the wood chips. These wood chips can then be reused as mulch around your other trees and plants. This environmentally-friendly practice is part of the way McGinty serves its customers and the area land.
