There are numerous advantages to blanketing soil around trees, shrubs and perennial plants with organic mulch, as it regulates the soil’s temperature and makes it more moderate, creating a favourable environment for the growth of roots. Mulch also helps to retain moisture and aids in the conservation of water. Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of using bark mulch is that it doesn’t allow weed seeds to germinate, thereby reducing the amount of maintenance throughout the year. Using bark mulch reduces the spread of disease, which just might save home gardeners a substantial amount of money each year in applying products. Mulch can also give the garden or landscaping project a beautiful, finished look.
There is a major difference between wood and bark mulch that landscapers should be aware of. Any mulch can qualify as bark mulch only if it contains 85% or more bark of that named tree. A mulch, on the other hand, can contain only 70% of the named material, and it can be categorized as either wood or bark. The remaining 15% in the bark mulch can be comprised of wood as well. The primary difference between them is that of lifetime.
Wood mulch breaks down much faster than bark mulch, and is susceptible to insect damage and discolouring. Bark mulch enhances the life and beauty of your garden and is a must-add substance to make your garden visually appealing, yet it is more important than only this visual aspect, as it also gives your plants enhanced life and allows them to absorb the nutrients in the soil.
This difference in the types of mulch is why you need the finest bark mulch available. Payless supplies the highest quality of organic bark mulch in Edmonton.

The rule of thumb when mulching is to mulch with 3-4 inches of bark mulch each season. You also have to be mindful of mulch build-up, as it might cause nutrient deficiency problems. You can effectively avoid build-up by removing old payers of un-decomposed mulch before adding a new layer.
