Annual Landscape Mulching Services in Knoxville, TN
What Is Mulching, and Why Is It Helpful for Your Landscape?
Anyone desiring beautiful landscaping should be familiar with the importance of landscape mulching. Typically made of organic materials, mulch is spread over the roots of a plant or landscape bed to protect and improve the soil conditions. Mulching helps lock in moisture during times of drought, as well as heat when winter brings freezing temperatures to Tennessee. Mulching insulates the soil around your plants to prevent soil erosion and compaction and aid in weed control. The Cutting Edge Lawn and Landscaping LLC provides residential and commercial landscape mulching services in Knoxville and many surrounding areas.

When Is the Best Time of Year for Landscape mulching?
Mulching is recommended at least once per year and may benefit your landscape during any season. Most homeowners prefer to apply mulch at least at the end of the growing season. However, you may wish to consider re-mulching every six months to keep things looking fresh. Spring and fall are ideal times for mulching when the weather is less extreme. Applying a new layer of mulch in the spring helps prepare your plants for the hot and humid summer months ahead when they may benefit from mulch’s moisture retention the most. Likewise, applying a fresh layer of mulch in the fall helps winterize your landscaping to keep plants nourished and hydrated through the freezing winter months ahead.
What Are the Best Landscape mulching Materials to Use?
Mulch may be ground from dead trees, grass clippings, leaves, hay, straw, shredded bark, sawdust, cardboard, wool, animal manure, stone, gravel, or even recycled rubber. Organic mulching materials free of pesticides and other harmful chemicals may yield the best results. Wood chip mulch is usually brown or black in color, depending on the species of wood. Wood mulch is popular due to its attractive, rich appearance and biodegradable qualities. Organic mulch made from wood will continue to offer nourishment to your plants even as it decomposes. Mulches with bigger chunks of bark will decompose at a slower rate than shredded wood mulches, making them last longer on average. Custom-colored mulches are available to suit your aesthetic preferences, which are typically processed using vegetable dyes to make them safe for your plants. If keeping weeds out of your landscape bed is one of your top concerns, rubber and other inorganic mulches may offer better weed control.
