Why do I have to re‐mulch my beds every year?
Mulch is composed of the shredded bark of hardwood or pine trees. Since it is biodegradable, the natural effects of the elements break it down after a period of time. As the mulch decomposes, the nutrients it creates are absorbed by the soil. By adding new mulch a few times each year, you’re enhancing the appearance of your beds and you’re enriching the soil naturally, too.
For new mulch beds, a four-inch depth is recommended. When refreshing beds, we recommend a two-inch depth.
What is the advantage to using pine mulch?
Pine mulch is a good alternative for acid‐loving plants such as azaleas and rhododendrons.
*Pine mulch is not recommended for use on hills and slopes since the bark does not intertwine like hardwood bark.
What about termites?
Mulch is shredded tree bark and termites do not live in the bark. Termites live in the pulp of the wood. If you have a termite warranty for your home, you should check the details regarding mulch application.
