How much mulch should I apply?
As a general rule of thumb, you should
apply mulch at a depth of 3-4 inches. Use less mulch for heavy, clay
soils and more for lighter, sandy soils.
Is mulch detrimental to plant growth?
Using mulch will actually
help your plants grow better by inhibiting weed growth and
preventing weeds from breaking through the soil. Mulch also keeps
the soil surface cool and helps it retain moisture. Another added
bonus is the beauty and variety that mulch brings to your landscape.
Griffith Lumber separates its mulch because
walnut mulch can harm your plants. Use walnut mulch on banks to
retard weed growth.
How often is remulching required?
Raking the mulch at 4-6 month
intervals will rejuvenate the beds and allow additional aeration to
plant roots, which is beneficial for plant growth. After about a
year (and on a yearly basis thereafter), rake the mulch bed, then
top dress it with 1-2" of new mulch. This provides insulation to
the roots of plants for winter protection. During extremely wet
seasons, it may be necessary to re-mulch every 6 months.
Do I need to mix "potting soil" with
mulch in my flower beds?
Although it is a matter of personal
preference, it really isn't necessary. In Southwestern Virginia, as
the mulch decomposes and mixes with the "red clay" soil, it creates
a highly fertile environment for plant growth. This rich soil gets
better as you add more mulch each year.
Is this the same type of mulch as Pine
Bark Nuggets or white Wood Chips?
Absolutely not. While different
landscape coverings each have their virtues, they have great
differences. Our mulch comes from the removed bark on outer layers
of White Pine, Oak, Poplar, and other logs. It is then processed
through a grinder for a "double ground" consistency. The end result
is a semi-fine "shredded" mulch that can be spread with either a
pitchfork or shovel.
What is the difference between Oak,
Poplar, and Pine mulch?
Oak mulch is darker in color, and
provides a rich, deep look to your landscaping. Oak has a higher
acid content which is perfect for Azaleas. Poplar mulch is lighter
in color (a neutral brown), although it darkens over time, and isn't
very acidic. Oak has a stronger "sweet" smell to it when it is wet,
but that smell will fade over time. Poplar has little if any odor.
Pine mulch has a light color similar to Poplar, with a typical "Pine
tree" aroma. Pine mulch has an acidic quality that breaks down over
