Mulch is a basic term for the subset of organic products used to adorn and protect the ground in your garden; mulch helps to keep plants’ roots warm and nourished while improving the condition of the soil and reducing overall water consumption. Hardwood bark mulch is a common choice among Gainesville VA homeowners, but there are other options to consider when planning your spring garden and beds.

Shredded hardwood mulch lends a seamlessly natural look to landscaped garden beds and wooded scenes; JK Enterprise Landscape Supply often recommends the use of shredded hardwood for creating paths and trails.

Cedar mulch is a great choice for Gainesville VA homeowners who struggle with termites and other infestation. You might choose to line delicate garden beds with cedar mulch, for its fine texture will never overwhelm your prize perennials.
