Reasons To Use Landscape Bark
Professional Landscaping Company in Tacoma WA.
Protecting the Roots in the Winter – Apply a bark mulch in autumn when the soil is already warm and moist, and this will actually protect the roots of your plants during the harsh winter seasons.
Bare soil allows movement, which would lead to the exposure for smaller plants or those without deep roots, which would cause harm. During times of warmer weather, plants think it’s about time to grow again and may be destroyed when the frost returns. Bark mulch helps avoid this by having the ground protected.
Using Landscaping Bark Suppresses Weeds – Bark also offers a natural deterrent with weed, which ensures that you spend less time on your hands and knees, cleaning the garden, and more time enjoying it.
Landscaping bark is particularly helpful in providing a favorable environment for soil microorganisms and soil worms, which, over-time, appears to minimize soil compaction.
About five to eight centimeters around shrubs and trees is everything you need to add a decorative touch to the landscape, while your soil reaps the numerous advantages bark mulch provides.
