Landscaping with Mulch? River Bottom Topsoil Wants You to Know How Often You Need to Change It, Moscow Mills, Missouri

With fall right around the corner, now is the perfect time to reach out to River Bottom Topsoil in Troy, MO, for all of your bulk mulch needs. Mulch gives your yard a clean look, suppresses weeds, holds moisture and keeps soil temperatures even. Over time, mulch can bunch up and become matted, so replacing or replenishing your mulch is necessary to keep it healthy and looking great.

The best time to add any type of mulch to new plantings is right after you plant them, but how often you change your mulch largely depends on what kind of mulch you prefer. Organic mulch materials like leaves, bark nuggets and wood chips will decompose or float away after heavy rains, so you will need to replenish it somewhat regularly. Mulch should be two to three inches deep and kept in an even layer. It is recommended that before adding a new mulch, you clean out as much of the old layer as possible to prevent it from getting too deep. Too much mulch can damage your soil and prevent your plants from getting important nutrients. A one-inch layer will provide sufficient coverage and offer good weed control.

No matter when you need to replace or replenish your mulch, River Bottom Topsoil can quickly handle your mulch delivery. They also carry a variety of decorative landscape rocks that will look great in your yard.
