Mulching

In addition to our tree pruning, tree removal and stump removal services, we can also quickly turn brush piles into great quality mulch for your personal use. We use the best and latest equipment to efficiently turn any trees or branches into mulch.

There are many reasons to use mulch in your garden or property, such as to prevent loss of water from the soil to reduce the water requirements, reduce weed growth and  encourage the growth of beneficial soil organisms and worms. The main benefits of using mulch include returning nutrients to the soil and improving soil structure so you require less fertilizer and other additives and prevent the erosion of soils, having an insulating barrier against heat, cold, sun and wind, and prevent tree trunk injuries by trimmers and mowers.

A lot of wood and bark mulches are made up of many fine particles, so they should not be more than about 5 to 7 centimetres deep.

Pine bark and other coarse-textured mulches really allow great air movement through them and therefore can be up to 10 centimetres deep.

Grass clippings, shredded leaves and similar mulches should never be deeper than about 4 to 5 centimetres deep, as these sorts of materials can become matted together, which will restrict the plant’s water and air supplies.

A shallow layer of pine needles can make for great mulch for acid-loving trees and shrubs and also allow water to penetrate easily.

We recommend the best time to place mulch around new plantings is directly after they have been planted, as this will help greatly to conserve moisture in the plant’s roots of the until these roots have grown out. For established plants, mulch is best applied in early spring, as this coincides with when the plants are beginning to grow and before any weeds start to germinate.
