Mulching is one of the best things you can do for the plants, shrubs and trees at your home in Albany or Saratoga, NY. It forms an insulating blanket around the roots protecting them from heat and cold while giving your garden an attractive appearance. The quality and type of mulch plays an important role in plant health.
The Benefits of Mulching

- Improves soil quality by adding organic matter when it breaks down.
- Suppresses the growth of weeds.
- Helps soil remain moist reducing evaporation and heat stress.
- Protects tree root zone from mowing and trimming equipment.
- Gives planting beds and planters a finished appearance.
