Mulch Mulch can be used to cover the soil in plant beds to benefit your plants and to give a uniform appearance to your landscape OR it can be used to help retain soil in areas of drainage/erosion.

FOR PLANT BEDS: There are many different types of mulch available: hardwood, pine bark, pine needles, stone, etc. All share some common benefits for your landscape and your plants. When mulch is applied at a proper depth, it can help:

  • Retain soil moisture
  • Reduce weeds
  • Reduce soil compaction
  • Moderate soil temperature
  • Make planting beds more attractive

FOR DRAINAGE/EROSION ISSUES: Mulch could be an option. The type of mulch used will depend on the slope of the eroding area. Another alternative you could consider is adding a rock garden that can accommodate some ornamental plants for added variety and interest.


HOMEOWNERS – If you are unhappy with the type of mulch you have now, we can replace it with your choice of mulch to give your yard the finished look you want. If you are happy with what you have, but it’s been a while since it was put down, you may want to add mulch to bring it to a proper depth that will keep your plants healthy and looking their best.

BUSINESSES – By installing a proper, uniform depth of mulch in all of the planting beds on your business property, we can:

  • Give your landscape a uniform, professional appearance
  • Help your landscape plants to thrive
  • Help you stick to your maintenance budget

No, we do not blow mulch when installing mulch for our customers.

We have found that many customers do not favor blown mulch as it is often inadvertently applied in places where fine particles of mulch are difficult to remove such as in the small crevices of brick walls or in the fine foliage of shrubs. In addition, blown mulch can often be applied unevenly so that it is too thick in some places and too thin in others.

At Ground Up, we apply mulch by hand – using pitchforks and rakes just like you would do yourself – to ensure a more even application without all the overspray of mulch that can make walls and plants look dirty. We might take a little longer than our competitors who blow mulch but we get the job done right.

Whether you want some mulch to improve the look of your planting beds or
you need to address an erosion issue, we can help.
