Mulch is a very important part of every healthy garden, but it is often forgotten about because of how much effort it can take to get to its final position on top of your yard. Luckily, there is a service that can eliminate the most tiring process of obtaining mulch: mulch delivery. Now it is as simple as picking out the mulch you want in the store (or even online) and then having it delivered right to your doorstep. But why should you use mulch delivery on a semi-regular basis? Here is a quick outline of what proper mulch usage looks like.
Fresh Mulch Is Always Best
Mulch is used for two main functional reasons: to add nutrients to your garden and to stop weeds from growing freely. This first point is contingent on mulch not being dried out and old, as the older mulch gets, the less nutritional value it provides to the soil and plants that surround it. By getting a mulch delivery every six months or so, you avoid the risk of stale mulch becoming not much more than just kindling. The fresher your mulch is, the more your garden will prosper, so if you want beautiful-looking plants at all times, you need good, fresh mulch to support their growth.
Mulch Levels Go Down Over Time
It can be hard to notice the gradual decline of your mulch because you are around it all the time, but over weeks and months, your mulch levels will deplete significantly. This can be due to rain, strong winds, the incline of your garden and even animal activity. Whatever the case may be, it is good to top up your mulch on a semi-regular basis just so that your garden is getting the full value it can from the mulch. What is the point of mulch at all if you are not using it to its fullest potential?
Size Of Your Garden
If you have a garden or property on the larger side, then both of the problems mentioned above will be compounded quite a lot. It is hard to keep a regular-sized garden looking healthy and vibrant, let alone one that is several hectares big. Mulch delivery takes a lot of this pressure away because all you need to do is set up an area for the mulch to be deposited, and then you can get straight to work flattening it out in the right places. Many places offer free mulch delivery as well, especially if you make a larger purchase, so make sure to look out for those deals!
For many years, I didn't give much thought to my garden. However, all of that changed when I retired from my job working as a lawyer in downtown Sydney. I suddenly discovered that I had a lot of time on my hands. I didn't know what to do with it. After a few weeks, I started to become slightly depressed. My wife could see what was happening and she suggested that I take up gardening so I called up my sister who is an expert with the plants and trees. She came to stay with me and my wife for a couple of weeks and taught me everything she could.
