Homeowners and contractors get many fine mulches and landscape stones from suppliers like Pantano Nursery & Landscaping Supply. We have bulk quantities of many landscape supplies and will help homeowners and contractors calculate the amount of each item to purchase. Our employees are well trained to help customers choose the correct mulch or stone for different areas of any landscape design and give instructions on how to install and maintain the chosen landscape elements. Black mulch is one of the mainstays of any landscape plan since it looks attractive and helps prevent weed growth.
Black mulch is a finely shredded, top quality mulch with dark black color enhancement. This mulch will keep its rich dark color for two full seasons, maintaining the attractive color contrast for the landscape design. Other mulches on the market that fade to gray are inferior and should be avoided. This dark mulch has a nice fine texture that makes it easy to spread and take care of. Like all mulches, black mulch will perform its best when it is properly installed and maintained. The area intended for the mulch should be level and free of weeds. A weed barrier can be laid on the ground before applying the mulch for easier maintenance. The mulch should be applied two to three inches deep for best performance and looks. To prevent the mulch from spreading out of the intended area, a bordering material can be used. This can be stone, brick, or another edging material.
The black mulch sold in bulk can be used around landscape plantings like shrubs and flowering plants. Mulches will help plants stay healthy by preventing weed growth and moisture loss. The two or three-inch depth of the mulch applications forms an effective barrier. Purchasing mulch in bulk is more cost effective because of the large quantities required for effective use in a landscape design. Once the mulch is in place it is not hard to maintain. Homeowners should periodically remove foreign objects like branches, leaves, weeds, and refuse that may be blown into the area by wind. If the mulch has any thin spots, more mulch should be added to maintain an adequate depth.
Landscape designers, homeowners, and contractors often use multiple landscape materials in different areas and applications for an interesting and attractive look. Some materials are good for one area, while other materials are better for other uses. Pantano Nursery carries a complete selection of landscape stones, mulches, and soils to choose from. We also have nursery plants and trees, outdoor lighting, and equipment for landscaping. You can save money on a landscape project by choosing us as your one supplier that has everything needed for the job.
