If you know nothing about mulch and searching for it now, you came to the right blog! But if you already have experience with gardening and still want to broaden your knowledge with mulching, you’re still in the right spot!

Mulch acts as a protective layer of organic or inorganic material spread over the soil’s surface. Adding mulch to your landscape can help your garden retain moisture, discourage weeds, add variety and texture to a garden, or improve a yard’s appearance. There are several different kinds of mulches, each good for various reasons, so knowing what they are for can help you cultivate your garden for a particular project.

To help you decide which type is best for your garden—and what kind of mulch will make your life easier—here’s a list of mulches that Medford Landscape Design is using and highly recommend.

Dark Brown Aged Hemlock Mulch is made from ground-up logs, so it has a natural look and feels that most people love. It comes in different sizes: fine and coarse. It has an intense color that blends nicely with other plants and trees in your yard. This mulch also has a beautiful texture, making it look like rich soil instead of a pile of leaves or wood chips. This makes it easier to disguise unsightly areas in your yard with mulch.

Reddish Natural Hemlock Mulch is made from the needles of hemlock trees, and it’s a great way to recycle them. Another great way to add some splash of color to your yard without worrying about the hassles of planting flowers or growing bushes. This mulch also has benefits beyond aesthetics: it’s economical and reusable!

Dyed Black Mulch is just like regular mulch—it’s made from wood chips, sawdust, or other plant matter—but it’s been colored black using an environmentally friendly dye. It can be used in both residential and commercial landscaping projects. Black mulch can help your garden retain more moisture because it reflects sunlight and doesn’t absorb heat like other types of mulch do.

Dyed Red Mulch is a type of mulch that has been dyed red using a chemical called iron oxide. Red-dyed mulch is typically made from recycled wood or paper products, making it an eco-friendly alternative to other types of mulch. Landscapers like to use this kind of mulch, especially during the Christmas season or the winter season, to make your yard more festive since the bright color can still be visible through some layers of snow.

Dyed Brown Mulch is the perfect choice for anyone who wants to give their garden a warm, earthy look. It’s also ideal for any gardener or landscaper who wants to add some depth and excitement to their garden beds but doesn’t want to spend hours carefully weeding out every last weed.

Dark Pine Brown Mulch is a rich, dark brown color that’s great for all seasons. It can be used around gardens, trees, and shrubs to give them a uniform look. This is the mulch if you’re looking for something that will blend in seamlessly with your lawn and won’t stand out too much.

A quick tip to leave for every gardener and landscaper: Mulch twice a year. It is advised to apply mulch every spring and fall. Start mulching during spring on warm ground. Mulch the second time during fall to keep your soil warm throughout harsh winter temperatures. Ultimately, the best mulch will be determined by the results you want to achieve in your landscape.
