🪄 Mulch with magic powers

We add mulch to our landscape beds to improve appearance, suppress weeds and conserve water.

Why it matters: The cost of mulch is a fraction of the cost of the money and/or time we spend planting and maintaining our beds.

🤔 Instead of choosing mulch based on color, consider what happens to the mulch as it breaks down.

🎍 Pine bark mulch breaks down over time into a beautiful organic soil.

  • Perfect for plants and trees that thrive in acidic soils —> like gardenias, hydrangeas, azaleas & Japanese maples.

👉 The method I used for planting my thriving Japanese maple used only pine bark mulch.

  • Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball.
  • Put a layer of pine bark mulch at the bottom of the hole.
  • Place the root ball in the hole and surround it with pine bark mulch.
