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:
Less time watering, less time weeding.
Less weed growth, smothers existing weeds, and prevents weed germination.
Less watering needed, more water retention, and less water evaporation.
No need for chemical weed killers or herbicides.
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 dangerous fires and no more costly dump fees.
