Mulching is basically the most beneficial work that can be done to your property. Mulch places a barrier around your plants, trees, shrubs, and protects the soil from harsh weather. When beds are landscaped it has the ability to reduce weeds and helps the soil stay fresh. 

Mulch should be applied twice each year. Once in the fall and once in the spring. 

The best time to apply mulch in the autumn months is late summer to late fall. This helps insulate any plants you may have during the winter months.  The best time to apply mulch in the spring is after spring clean-up and edging.
