What is Bark?

Here at Sandee’s Soil & Rock, we utilize high-grade bark mulch to enhance your flowerbeds, walkways, trees, shrubs, and various other aspects of your properties landscape. Our bark mulch is made from tree bark that we shred into fine, medium, and large pieces to dress the top of your yard with a pop of texture and added color. Bark decomposes reasonably slowly, making it an excellent option for sprucing up the scenery of your yard each year.

How Can Bark Improve My Landscape?

Our bark mulch can be spread over the surface of your properties soil to enhance the overall health and look of your landscaping. Out of all the mulch types, bark mulch is the most beneficial. Keep reading to find the many reasons why investing in bark mulch for your property is a great yard-care choice:

  • Add to your soil’s fertility – Bark mulch is an organic material that will slowly but surely break down over time. Once the bark has decomposed, it will turn to humus (the organic component of soil), which improves the fertility, texture, and structure of the soil.
  • Discourage weed growth – Bark mulch works to suppress weed growth by depriving them of light. Additionally, organic mulch-types, in particular, can effectively create an ecosystem for crickets and beetles who actually seek out and feed on weed seeds.
  • Conserve moisture – Did you know that mulching can retain up to 80% of added moisture in your soil? It’s true! Bark mulch works to conserve moisture by blocking the sun, which helps minimize evaporation.
  • Maintain soil temperature – Similarly to its capacity to conserve moisture, bark mulch also works to help keep the soil temperature stay cool by blocking out the sun.
  • Protect your plants – Bark mulch helps protect your plants by acting as insulation. This insulating effect helps to prevent the adverse effects of alternating freezes and thaws that can actually pull your plants out of the ground during the changing of the seasons.
  • Beautify your yard – Our bark mulch comes in an array of shapes, sizes, and colors, effortlessly adding a bit of liveliness to your landscape. Mulch also creates a bit of order to your yard, and can effectively make your flower beds, stepping stones, trees, and shrubs pop.
  • Improve topsoil – As bark mulch decomposes, it adds a layer of organic matter to the soil. This decomposition not only adds much-needed nutrients to the soil, but it also increases the prevalence of beneficial microorganisms while simultaneously combatting pathogens that promote various types of plant diseases.
  • Create a favorable environment – Bark mulch is specifically beneficial in creating a favorable environment for earthworms and soil microorganisms, which helps reduce soil compaction over time.

Some Tips from the Experts

Though it may seem like laying mulch is an easy job, there are some specific rules to follow to ensure you get the most out of your material. People in the area have become particular about relying on our team of seasoned landscapers to lay their mulch due to our flawless application process. With almost 20 years of experience under our belts, we understand the best methods for laying mulch, and we’ll let you in on some tricks of the trade:

  • Though bark mulch can technically be laid any time of the year, we strongly recommend waiting until mid-spring to have mulch put down on your property. Springtime is when the soil on your property will be adequately warmed, which creates a perfect environment for optimal plant growth. If applied earlier, the soil’s temperature may be too cold and delay plant growth.
  • Bark mulch should be applied two to four inches deep over relatively clean, weed-free soils. An adequate mulch level on the soil’s surface will allow the soil to soak up more water, and even reduce the rate of water loss from the soil.
  • You will want to ensure you water your soil deeply before applying mulch. Mulch significantly helps your soil retain water and replenish your plants. We never apply bark mulches to dry soil.
  • When selecting mulch, don’t hesitate to ask our professional landscapers about affordability, appearance, and simplicity of maintenance. We want to ensure we deliver you the best bark mulch for your specific needs, and we take pride in helping our customers find the perfect addition to their landscape.
