Mulching Service | Cape Cod, MA
Mulching planting beds is both functional and decorative.
It aids in moisture retention and acts as a weed barrier. It also helps to protect a plants root system. Mulch can be installed at any time of the year since it is a dual service product.
Since bark mulch is a natural product recycled from the bark of certain types of trees, it is environmentally friendly and biodegradable.
There are different types of mulch, pine, hemlock, black, red etc. it all depends on your preference.
One thing to keep in mind is that if applied annually, you may only need a top dressing to make the mulch look beautiful again.
Often times over the years, mulch builds up if too much is installed. At that point, it is better to remove some of the old mulch around trees and foundations and put down a top coat to keep it at a good height.
We install mulch with 1 of our 2 truck mounted bark blowers.
The mulch is loaded into the blower and blown through a hose for installation. Because of the length of the hose we can reach areas up to 150’ from where the vehicle is located. This works great for sloped areas as it is much easier to blow in the mulch to help retain a slope than it is to utilize a wheelbarrow. If you have areas that are either not accessible by the hose or densely planted areas, we can also service those areas by hand mulching. No job is too big or small, whether it be1 yard or 100 we can service any project requirement.
For an added level of weed prevention, it may be a benefit to some to have us apply a weed preemergent to the mulch beds either prior to mulch installation or very shortly thereafter.
It helps to prevent weeds from coming up through the mulch longer. If interested, we can also provide this service with one of our licensed pesticide applicators.
If you choose to have another type of product installed in your beds we can install shells, pea stone, gravel etc. please inquire.
