Texture and topography are factors to consider when deciding if mulch or straw is best for your yard. We will assess the landscape and help you decide the thickness, type, color, and material used to keep your lawn looking its best.

Flat surfaces and any area with a slight incline typically need mulch. Mulch comes in many organic varieties including compost material, bark chips, wood shreds, and nuggets. The color of the mulch will also determine what look your lawn will have. Dark mulches made of compost, bark mulch, and wood chips are used for natural-looking gardens while brighter gardens, such as vegetable gardens, need lightly-colored mulch or shreds.
