Mulch your way to healthier, happier trees!
Proper mulching is very beneficial for landscapes, but one of the worst mistakes you can make when caring for a landscape is overmulching. Follow these simple rules of mulching and you, too, can reap the benefits of a beautifully mulched landscape this season.
Do: Spread the mulch evenly
Using your shovel, evenly spread the mulch circle all the way out to the tree’s drip line. Don’t worry about making it level – you can even out the mulch after you’re done spreading.
