Cover More Ground With Customized Mulch Installation Services in Long Grove, Illinois
We know mulch. It's a common material used in landscaping projects, useful to protect flower beds and tree roots. A nice layer of mulch covering the ground around plants and trees helps keep weeds down and locks in moisture. It is good for your landscape, and it looks nice, too. Does your property in Long Grove, Illinois need mulch installation? McGinty Bros., Inc. has exactly what you need.
Mulch Installation Basics
Let's cover the basics before you cover your ground. Mulch is an all-natural material. It can be made with different ingredients to achieve different results, but basically, it's composed of wood chips combined with other organic materials. The end result is like soil in milkshake form, thick and rich. Unlike most milkshakes, mulch is very healthy (for your landscape). Nitrogen-rich and nutrient-packed, a good mulch feeds the soil that it covers.
We put mulch to all sorts of good uses: around trees, in garden beds, and on playgrounds. What does it actually do? Good question. Let's look at the different functions of mulch.
The organic matter in the mulch breaks down and enters into the soil beneath it, providing nutrients for healthy plants and trees. We can even customize your mulch so it gives your soil exactly the nutrients it lacks.
Thick layers of mulch act like insulation, keeping needed moisture locked underneath. It soaks up rain and protects the soil from the evaporating powers of the hot sun.
In Long Grove, Illinois, we can get unexpected cold snaps that kill plants and even trees. Mulch protects the vulnerable root systems, so it takes longer for the cold to seep into the plants. Think of mulch as a scarf, warding off the cold.
Put a mulch barrier around your valued plants to keep weeds out. Weeds can't take root when mulch is on patrol.
When you install a layer of mulch around a tree, you are setting up that tree for good health. The mulch protects the root system from extreme weather damage as well as invasive plants. It also deters root disease. Mulch is good for trees all year round.
Mulch by itself looks kind of like...wood chips and dirt. Mulch in a landscape looks like a pleasing dark border between different elements of the artistic whole. The overall effect is pleasing to the eye. It smooths out rough edges. It keeps weeds from spoiling the effect. It provides visual contrast in your landscape. We love how mulch adds the finishing touch to an already gorgeous area.
Mulch installation is a key feature in the McGinty Bros.' landscaping portfolio. We encourage you to keep an eye out for the beautifying effects of mulch the next time you take a drive around Long Grove.
The Different Flavors of Mulch
Your soil will love our menu of different mulches. McGinty Bros. mixes up big batches of nutritious mulch, each designed for different purposes. Over the many years that we have been in business, we've developed a taste (so to speak) for excellent mulches. How can you know which mix will suit your landscape? Let's take a look at the different flavors that we use in our installation projects.
Certified Playground Mulch.
This blend helps soften the many tumbles that children take as they jump off swings and fall down from monkey bars. Playground mulch is well-suited for soft ground cover.
Premium Bark Mulch.
Woody mulches are the kind that put healthy nutrients into the soil. They do a good job protecting plant roots against the cold. They insulate the soil to prevent moisture evaporation. Plus, the dark wood in the mulch looks very nice around your plant beds and trees. We mix a special blend of McGinty Mulch that is made with dark, hardwood chips. It's our favorite mulch, and it may soon be your favorite, too.
Stump Mulch from Locally-Grown Trees.
Part of our job includes removing tree stumps from landscapes after a tree falls down. As we grind the stump, we collect the chips and reuse them as mulch for your other trees and shrubs.
