Bark /Gravel Application
Landscapes include a large number of elements and features and a variety of materials go into installing them. While plantings, grass and various other masonry elements are some of the most commonly noticed materials in a landscape, there are certain installations and features that also add to the overall ambience and functionality of your landscape. Bark or mulch is a great way to protect large sections of the landscape and many people still prefer the classic look of gravel for their driveway, paths and walkways.
We at Nature Bros Landscape Maintenance have been providing custom landscape maintenance services to clients in and around Turner, Salem, and Keizer. Over the years, we have built a very solid presence in this region of Oregon as a professional landscape maintenance company.
Garden Mulch - The Benefits
Lawn mulching is a vital aspect of many of the landscaping projects we take up. While there are many synthetic types of mulch on the market, we recommend the use of organic mulches such as the ones made from the barks of different types of hardwood species. There are a number of distinct benefits to using these bark mulches:
- They cover up sections of bare soil; layers of wood mulches create an attractive look in the landscaping.
- Your plants and shrubs require moisture to keep them green & fresh. When you mulch soil, it helps retain sufficient moisture. The water is absorbed from irrigation as well as rainfall and the mulch helps the water reach the plant roots.
- Mulching helps prevent soil erosion.
- It prevents the soil from hardening during the winter months and keeps it much cooler in the summer months.
Gravel is a widely used material to surface driveways, pathways, and walkways. This crushed stone is used in a number of different applications. It may seem that gravel application is an easy job and something you would be able to handle yourself. However, the fact is that only a trained and experienced professional would be able to ensure the base is leveled well, the right sized gravel is used and that it is spread evenly on the available surface. There are a number of benefits to gravel installations such as:
- Easy to maintain
- Diverse style
- Quick installation
In most instances, gravel and mulch installations are part of broader landscape projects. But, we can also provide these services in isolation if you like. If you need gravel topping services, we can handle that job as well.
