MULCH INSTALLATION & DELIVERY - FRISCO, TX
Installing quality mulch around tree & shrub bed plantings benefits your property and landscape in many ways. Unfortunately, mulch bags tend to be heavy and bulky. Installing them can be both time-consuming and back-breaking work. Not to mention the fact that most residential landscapes need an average of 20-40 bags, so you may need to plan on delivery fees as well. Save yourself the hassle by calling Main Street Lawn Care and Landscaping for mulch installation & delivery in Frisco, TX and nearby areas.
A fresh layer of mulch is not only aesthetically pleasing to the eye; it actually serves a very practical role in the life of plants and gardens. The basic role of mulch is to naturally decompose, boosting the organic matter and providing needed nutrients to the soil and optimizing plant growth. Some other key mulching benefits include: 1) mulch retains moisture, reducing the use of irrigation water; 2) mulch insulates your plants root system by controlling the ground temperature; 3) mulch actually inhibits weed growth by creating a physical barrier over the soil which prevents weed seed germination; and 4) certain mulches are aromatic and naturally repel insects.
Not all mulches are created equally. Since most mulch looks the same, it’s hard to tell the difference between those that are actually beneficial to your landscape and those that are a waste of your time and money. The best hardwood mulch is shredded bark mulch and the best softwood mulch is shredded cedar mulch. Tree bark mulches are best because they are made from the bark of real aged wood. While other less expensive mulches do contain wood, they can also include old construction materials such as wooden pallets chemically treated with CCA (chromium copper arsenic). The potential savings of about $1/bag is simply not worth exposing your loved ones or your plants to these chemicals.
We install only premium mulch from manufactures who participate in the Mulch & Soil Council Product Certification Program. This certification requires the mulch to meet stringent review and testing requirements, properly label products and undergo random audit testing. That’s why hiring Main Street Lawn Care and Landscaping for mulch delivery & installation in Frisco, TX is your best choice.
- Hardwood Mulch
- Softwood Mulch
- Stone Mulch
Shredded hardwood mulch is most often made from oak or a mixture of hardwoods. Hardwood mulches are more commonly used in landscaping than softwood (Cedar) mulches because they are more widely available, offer color choices, cost less and are more beneficial for plants because they decompose at a faster rate.
The shredded hardwood mulches that we install are bagged and come in a natural brown (organic) or color enhanced brown, black or red. Most of our residential clients prefer brown or black and our commercial clients prefer brown.
The only shredded softwood mulch that we recommend is made of Cedar wood. Softwood (Cedar) mulches have aromatic oils that naturally repel insects and last longer than hardwood mulches; though, they are less commonly used in landscaping because they are less available, do not offer color choices and cost more.
The shredded softwood (Cedar) mulches that we install are bagged and come in a natural color that varies by region.
Stone mulches (pebbles, gravel, river rocks, decomposed granite) come in many shapes, colors and sizes. They are a great choice for those who don’t want to hassle with seasonal mulch changes. Stone mulches are significantly more expensive than wood mulches because they cost more to ship, store, deliver and install.
The stone mulches that we install are delivered in bulk and the options are endless. Many of our residential and commercial clients prefer stone mulches.
