Mulch / Delivery / Installation Included!
A lot of homeowners think of mulch as strictly cosmetic, just something to make the place look good. And it’s true that mulch around the base of trees and shrubs does improve property appearance. But here at Carter Lawn + Landscaping we want to show you there is so much more that mulch can contribute to your landscape. It makes lawn and tree maintenance a whole lot easier, and provides other yard care benefits that are underground and out of sight.
Proper use of mulch is an essential tree care technique. Tree roots are sensitive to high summer temperatures. When the surface soil reaches 100 to 108 degrees, or more (which it can during hot weather), most tree roots begin to die. Temperatures that high simply kill the roots. Unfortunately, this happens in the upper area of the soil (the top 5 to 6”), which is usually the most fertile. A 3” layer of mulch can reduce soil temperatures by as much as 10 degrees, maintaining a healthy growth environment for the roots, and letting them grow actively in the upper soil,which is extremely important in our Central Florida sub-tropical climate.
