Landscape Ideas to Help Improve The Curb Appeal of Your Home: Refresh Your Mulch

Make your house the envy of the neighborhood with simple projects that boost curb appeal and give your home that dressed-to-impress appearance. What’s more, curb appeal landscaping boosts property value and delivers big returns for small investments.

Planting beds look sharp and picture-perfect when you first apply mulch. Over time, though, sun and weather can cause fading, giving mulch a tired appearance. You can greatly improve the look and curb appeal of your lawn, as well as your entire home, buy simply refreshing your mulch. Mulch comes in a variety of colors and materials and is spread or laid over the surface of the soil as a covering. It is used to retain moisture in the soil, suppress weeds, keep the soil cool, and make the garden bed look more attractive.

Organic mulches also help improve the soil’s fertility, as they decompose. Organic mulch will decompose and have to be replaced, but in the process, it will also improve your soil’s fertility and its organic content. The dryer and woodier the mulch, the slower it will decompose and the fewer nutrients it will give to the soil.

Gravel and Stone

Gravel and stone work well as mulches in areas that require good drainage or beds with plants that like a little additional heat, like Mediterranean herb gardens and rain gardens. Stone is hard to remove, so give it a lot of thought before using stone or gravel as a mulch.

Which mulch you choose depends on the function and aesthetic you are looking for. There are more and more choices each year, so review your options before you start spreading and choose a mulch that will please you and aid your garden for many years.

Refreshing your mulch is not too difficult, but if you do not have the time, or simply need assistance, give us a call for a Free Estimate for your Mulch Refresh.

"On The Green is the BEST! I have used other companies, but there is no comparison. I was just admiring my lawn this morning - saying that it is beautiful and looks like a green carpet. In addition to my lawn care, they also service my in-ground sprinkler system. Customer service is top-notch."

"We recently hired On the Green to take care of our yard. Our grass is starting to look better. Today they showed up to clean up the leaves and other things that blow into our yard from the park across the road. These two guys did a fantastic job. We have a low sitting deck and they managed to get the leaves out from under it. On the Green has a 5 star rating with us."
