Jersey Landscaping: The Benefits of Using Mulch for Landscaping Projects

It’s getting to be fall, and at Jersey Landscaping, LLC we’re starting to think about applying mulch for landscaping projects we’re working on right now. (Maybe some of you are, too.) The benefits of using mulch for landscaping protection are pretty significant, so if you’re not in a mulching state of mind, it’s time to get there.

But mulch can be a tricky master, and if you don’t have a lot of experience with lawn care you can do some damage to your flowers and trees. It’s best to hire the services of a professional landscaping company to make sure it’s done right the first time and every time. And lucky for you, our landscapers in Monmouth County, NJ have the experience you need to get the yard you’ll love

A Professional Landscaping Company Is Your Best Bet

So why use a professional landscaping company instead of going it alone?

1.       Mulch volcanoes. I promise — that’s a real thing. And you’ve definitely seen them. When you use too much mulch for landscaping, you get these mounds that look a lot like, well, volcanoes. When the mulch is too high against tree trunks or shrubs, it can actually harm the roots of the plants.

2.       Imbalanced PH. When the PH is off in your soil, it can actually become toxic. So instead of enjoying your lawn, your time in the yard can become a literal game of “the floor is lava.” 

3.       Bad smells. Too much mulch gives off a sour smell that’s pretty awful. It also adds to the PH imbalance in the lawn.

4.       Creepy crawlies. Even if you apply the exact right amount of mulch, you can invite the local wildlife to create nests in your yard by applying it at the wrong time.

When it comes to using mulch for landscaping, you’re better off not taking any chances. A professional landscaping company (like ours) uses licensed, insured contractors who have both the education and the experience to know how much mulch you really need, and what parts of the yard need it most.

We also save you some money by using high-quality, local products that work well with native plants and flowers. Some landscapers in Monmouth County, NJ may use mulch that’s composted from inorganic materials or shipped from out of state. (Pennsylvania is a popular place.) But at Jersey Landscaping, LLC we’ve spent years working with some of the finest mulch materials from distributors we know and trust.

Whether you’re protecting your vegetable gardens or keeping your trees snug through the winter, we’ve got what you need. Don’t ruin a perfectly good lawn with good intentions. Call our professional landscaping company to take care of all you mulching needs.
