Proper Mulching

I have been in the landscaping industry for over 25 years and it never ceases to amaze me how companies that call themselves “professionals” still cannot mulch properly.

If you see piles of mulch, also known as “mulch volcanos” you should question the knowledge of those individuals, their training etc. Over mulching can cause some serious long term problems to your landscape. Especially trees. This is one of my “pet peaves” as a professional. Click here for a great link from “Over Mulching” by Diane Relf from the Virginia Cooperative Extension Service.

Great insight on the effects from overmulching. I believe it is also available in Spanish.
