Why Mulching

Why we mulchDSC06106

Mulches are materials placed over the soil surface to maintain moisture and improve soil conditions. Mulching is one of the most beneficial things a home owner can do to their plants and trees. At MowTec we know what mulch can do. This is why we mulch:


Saves time

Less time watering, less time weeding.


Weed reduction

Less weed growth, smothers existing weeds, and prevents weed germination.


Saves water

Less watering needed, more water retention, and less water evaporation.



No need for chemical weed killers or herbicides.


Stimulates growth

Mulched trees grow faster than un-mulched trees.


Maintains even soil temperature

Keeps the soil and roots cooler in summer, warmer in winter.


Nourishes the soil

Adding nutrients as it decomposes.


Prevent soil splashing

Keeps soil borne diseases away from plants.


Less soil erosion

Reducing the impact of raindrops and water runoff.


Adds beauty to the landscape

Providing a cover of uniform colour and interesting texture to the surface.


More root structure

Plants will produce additional roots in the mulch that surrounds them.


Keeps your property tidy

You can mulch as you prune.


Protects the trunks

… from damage by lawn equipment.


Prevent soil compaction

… and crusting on the surface and over roots.


Reduces bruising of fallen fruit

… under fruit trees.


Increases worm population

… resulting in better aeration.


Create paths and access ways

… to any part of the landscape, even after heavy rains. During dry periods, mulch reduces dust.


No more…

No more dangerous fires and no more costly dump fees.
