Give your Sheridan home and yard a major boost with the mulching services from JPJ Landscaping LLC. With several varieties of mulch to choose from, the possibilities are endless for creating a truly unique landscaped property. Consider using the mulch options below for flower beds, trees, patio areas, and more.

Choose From These 4 Types of Mulch for Your Landscape

1. Wood Chips, Nuggets, or Bark

Organic mulch like bark, chips, and nuggets come in both hardwood and softwood varieties. They are aged and dried, often dyed black or red, and sold in bags or in bulk at any garden center. Hardwood mulch is best for trees, shrubs, and perennial beds. Softwood mulch is perfect around large trees and sizable shrubs. 

2. Cocoa Chips

Cocoa bean hulls are lightweight, easy to handle, and suitable for all types of landscape. They have a deep rich color and a very pleasant scent. While they can be a more costly option than wood chips or bark, it only needs to be applied once a year. Cocoa mulch can be fatal to pets and wildlife so if you have either in your yard or property, you may want to choose a different option. 

3. Rock or Crusher Dust

Rock mulch and crusher dust are available in a variety of choices, such as crushed gravel, lava rock, marble chips, and pea gravel. These types of mulch are very popular for hardscape areas like sidewalks and pathways. They only need to be applied once and then touched up each year as needed. This type of mulch is not good for plant life because it does not retain moisture. And because it absorbs heat, it can damage fragile flowers and vegetation.

4. Rubber Mulch

An inexpensive and extremely durable product, rubber mulch is great for high-traffic areas like pathways, fire pits, and more. Many homeowners are also now choosing this covering for their backyard playgrounds as well. Just like rock mulch, it does not decompose, so it is not a good choice for flower or plant landscaping.
