One of the most powerful tools in any gardener’s inventory is mulch. There are many different types of mulch, and it can be applied for a variety of reasons depending on your lawn, plants, climate, and soil type.
Because Alternative Edge Lawn & Landscaping has worked throughout Wabash Township for over 16 years, we have the local expertise and horticulture knowledge to make sure your mulch installation maximizes its benefits.
Benefits of mulch installation
The benefits of mulch installation are both functional and aesthetic. When used effectively, mulch encourages plant growth, discourages weed growth, retains moisture in the soil, protects plant roots, and keeps topsoil in place. It also instantly gives a polished, neat look to any yard or garden. Even more importantly for Indiana, mulch can be applied with other coverings to protect plants from dangerous temperature fluctuations during our freezing winter conditions. To ensure that your mulch actually provides all of these benefits—killing weeds without suffocating your flowers, for example—it’s essential to install the right type of mulch at the right depth and time. That’s why Alternative Edge Lawn & Landscaping offers a variety of mulch installation services throughout the Lafayette and West Lafayette communities:
- Yard preparation
- Weed pulling and underlaying
- Hauling and transport
- Mulch laying, raking, and evening
- Ongoing maintenance of mulch installations
Mulch needs to be replaced every few months or years depending on the type and purpose of the mulch. If you’ve got aging or broken down mulch, we’ll clean it out and replace it with a fresh mulch installation chosen specifically for your yard.
