Mulching is an important part of your garden – it controls weeds, retains moisture, prevents erosion, maintains nutrients, controls pests, encourages worms (which aerate the soil and produce fertilizers), and helps make your garden look beautiful and polished.
Mulch Options for the Lowcountry
There are many different types of mulch that can be used in gardens, but here in the Lowcountry, the mulch we recommend most is Brown Cypress (if you’re looking for a great-looking option that will last a long time) or Pine Bark (if you want to go the all-natural route). These mulch options will decompose and have to be replaced over time, however, the process of them breaking down helps with soil fertility – which makes them the best option for a happy and healthy garden.
We can lay playground chips in play areas and garden paths which are shock-absorbent and easy to maintain.
