Nearly every year, areas all throughout Gulf Coast region face periods of water usage restrictions when it comes to landscape and tree maintenance. However, just because a neighborhood or locality restricts water usage doesn't mean the property has to suffer or fall into decline because of water restrictions. Today's blog post looks at ways to keep residential and commercial properties beautiful and healthy in spite of water restrictions for tree and landscape watering.
Commercial property owners are often looking for cost-effective ways to improve their property, and some might consider rubber mulch for their longevity and ability to retain moisture. However, there are a number of serious dangers that can come choosing rubber mulch for commercial properties.
If your commercial property needs soil or mulch, do you know what kind you should buy? Do you feel overwhelmed at the many types of soil and mulch available on the market? The honest truth is that there isn't one single type of soil or mulch that works for all properties. It's important for property owners to understand that the variances in soils and mulches can make a huge impact on the health and beauty of your property.
As trees grow and mature, their delicate root system will expand outward from the tree, just like the limbs and branches. Although tree roots typically expand underground, they are not buried far below ground but instead stay much closer to the surface of the soil. Unfortunately for tree owners, some tree roots begin to appear above the soil surface, making the enjoyment and maintenance of a landscape much more difficult.
While most tree owners realize the many benefits of applying mulch to trees throughout the year, many make the mistake of having too much mulch applied to their trees, creating a volcano-like pile of mulch.
When we hire a company to perform a service for us, whether it's house painting, roofing, carpet-cleaning or landscape maintenance, we expect to receive quality services for the price we pay. We want the work to be done safely, thoroughly, and with expert care so that the job is done right the first time. When a service job is not performed well, it is typically quite evident to the consumer, who will notice spots still left in their carpet, or patches of uneven paint on their sheetrock.
Making your own mulch has lots of blooming benefits for your yard and your wallet.
Mulching is one of the simplest and most beneficial practices you can use in the garden. Mulch is simply a protective layer of material that is spread on top of the soil.
Mulches can either be organic -- such as grass clippings, straw, bark chips, and similar materials -- or inorganic -- such as stones, brick chips, and plastic. Both organic mulches and inorganic mulches offer various benefits.
