ArborCare provides adequate care for your plants and trees through mulching to ensure that your greens remain sprawling even through the harsh winter months. Mulching is a safe, organic and cost-effective way to protect your grass, shrubs, or trees’ moisture cover. It is also an effective way to prevent the roots of the trees from freezing.
The moisture content within the soil is crucial for the health and overall wellness of the plant. During extreme temperatures, this water may freeze, causing the plant to die. With adequate mulching, you can ensure that your plants remain healthy even.
Processes vs Unprocessed Mulch
Processed mulch chips are put through a chipper and then through a tub grinder to obtain more uniform chip pieces. Whereas unprocessed mulch chips are put only through a chipper and the pieces could be quite large, and there may be small branches and sticks. Mulching is essential to ensure that your plants can sustain the wear and tear caused by the elements. It also helps the plants retain the soil’s necessary moisture, giving rise to a healthy plant, alongside protecting and safeguarding your greens from weed growth, insects, and pests.
When Is It Appropriate to Mulch in Calgary?
Typically, it is best to lay down mulch in your garden between mid to late spring. Spring is an excellent time for the germinated seedlings to work their way up through the modest layer of mulch. While mulching, one must take care not to create a deep layer as the seed may not penetrate a layer too deep. It is essential to get your plants off to a good start. Additional mulch can be added after the plants have sprung out from the seed. Call us for more information about our mulching services.
What to Put Beneath the Mulch?
A range of materials can be placed underneath your mulches, from stone and wood chips to landscape fabric. The primary purpose of establishing a base material beneath the mulch is to prevent the stones or fragments from mixing in with the soil. However, there is no strict need to place a barrier material such as landscape fabric under your mulch. These materials do not act as weed barriers.
How Long will My Mulch Last?
Although your mulch may last around 4-7 years, aesthetically, it may have a shorter life span. It may start looking like a muddy patch of the wilderness after some time, and you might have to replace it sooner. However, a well-done mulch will last you 4-7 years, even with minimal care and maintenance. The aesthetic life span of your mulch is only about 1-2 years.
How Often Do I Have to Replace My Mulch?
It is essential to renew the layer of mulch periodically. Ideally, it should be kept about 50 to 100mm from the soil surface. Occasionally, adding 25mm of new mulch to the existing layer helps keep your mulch working effectively. Call us to get a no-obligation quote for your garden.
