Enhance Your Properties Curb Appeal
March Mulch Madness

Nothing has a greater impact than the appearance of a fresh application of mulch!

The benefits of a sufficient layer of mulch include:
  • Reduces evaporation from soil surface, cutting water use by 25-50%
  • Organic mulches promote soil microorganism activity, which in turn, improves soil tilth and helps lessen soil compaction. 
  • Stabilizes soil moisture
  • Controls weeds, which rob soil moisture
  • Moderates soil temperature
  • Controls erosion
  • Gives a finished look, improving aesthetic quality!
 Soil moisture retention is essential during our dry, hot summers and even more with our drought conditions. We encourage you to do your half in conserving California's limited water resource. Contact us here For more information on appropriate mulch choices to cut back your water usage!
