Mulching, Bloomington, MN

Mulching involves applying an organic ground cover across gardens, beds, and around trees and plants. More than just decorative, mulch provides vital benefits. It suppresses weeds, regulates soil temperature, retains moisture so plants need less watering, and naturally enriches the soil as it slowly decomposes.

New Finish Landscapes & Design provides professional mulching services to clients across Twin City's Metro area, using premium organic mulches. We advise mulching for optimal landscape health and plants that thrive in any season.

Our team properly re-mulches existing landscapes and installs fresh mulch in new garden installations. They have extensive landscaping expertise and handle all types of big and small residential and commercial mulching jobs for our clients.

Why We Recommend Organic Mulches

Organic mulches like wood chips, bark, straw, or compost have distinct advantages over inorganic options:

  • As they break down, organic mulches improve soil structure, aeration, and drainage. The decomposed matter acts as a natural fertilizer.
  • They help the soil retain moisture and require less frequent watering, making your landscape more water efficient.
  • These applications prevent weed growth and seed germination, reducing the need for herbicides.
  • They insulate plant roots and soil, protecting them from extreme freeze and thaw fluctuations.
  • Organic mulches add a neat, polished look to garden areas and landscape beds.
  • Natural mulches are entirely safe for kids, pets, and wildlife, unlike chemical or rubber mulches.
  • We advise using natural, organic mulches whenever possible for optimal landscape health.

Organic Mulch Types

We use various popular organic mulch materials based on client needs, and these include:

  • Wood Chips - Shredded hardwood is a versatile and economical option, though it may wash away on slopes.
  • Wood Shreds - These are coarser and more substantial for staying put but need occasional topping off.
  • Pine Straw - Its distinct amber color is excellent for suppressing weeds, but it can be slippery when wet.
  • Leaf Mulch - It is composed of composted leaves that add nutrients, and its darker color absorbs more heat.
  • Bark & Nuggets - Attractive shredded cedar and cypress resist decay and are sized from mini nuggets to larger ones.
  • Compost - Nourishing decomposed organic matter keeps plants healthy and thriving.
  • Straw - Wheat or hay straw is a temporary mulch that enriches the soil as it decomposes over months.
