Knowing a little bit about all of the products can help you be more informed during your project, like knowing the different types of commonly used landscaping products.
Mulch: is a very popular choice for landscaping as it serves many purposes. Mulch is an excellent weed suppressant because it prevents the weeds from getting sunlight and air. Mulch also helps to create healthy and hearty topsoil. When the mulch starts to decompose back into its basic elements, it adds nitrogen to the soil, providing nutrients for the other plants. A significant function of mulch is its ability to moderate moisture levels. This is especially helpful in the Pacific North West. The mulch retains water during the summer, saving you time and money from watering. It also prevents erosion during heavy rainfall. In addition to all of these practical uses, mulch is also used for its aesthetic purposes. It’s pretty.
Rocks: are a popular product for landscaping and extremely versatile. Rocks, similar to mulch, are great at preventing weed growth. When you are covering an area with rocks for a path or something where you don’t want weeds to grow, you should also build a border with larger rocks. Doing this will help keep grass and other plants from growing under the rocks—the versatility with rocks in unmatched by any other landscaping material. You can use different sized rocks to create limitless features in your garden, from waterfalls to pathways and even rock gardens.
Soil & Compost are the basis for your entire garden. A lot of people take their soil and compost quality very seriously, as they should. An improper and nutrient-weak soil can affect the rest of your landscape. Your topsoil is the thin layer of decaying material that rests on the surface of your soil. In more developed areas, this layer can be very thin and poor quality, resulting in poor plant growth. Compost is decomposed organic material that you can add to your soil to make it super-rich in nutrients.
