After tree removal, an incredible volume of mulch is also produced. They can’t possibly serve any use, right? Wrong. These chippings have many possibilities to not only make for good decoration but increase the health of your property. 

There are several reasons why you should use the mulch from tree removals in your garden and property. 

Some of these benefits include: 

  • Soil moisture 
  • Improving fertility 
  • The health of the soil 
  • Reducing weed growth
  • Increase safety of the area

At A1 Sure Services, we are all about responsible and conscientious work. We believe that there is a duty for us to use the resources in our reach to maintain natural beauty. This blog is going to delve into how mulch can be the perfect addition to your property. 

Increase The Retention Of Water In The Soil

Tree mulch heavily decreases the amount of water that is evaporated from the soil. In addition, a layer of mulch over the top layer will keep the below soil moist and free to be altered. Dry soil can be a complex surface to work on, whether it is property development or the initial stages of a new garden. 

With increased water retention in the soil, owners won’t need to worry about watering the land. Additionally, mulch can increase soil aeration and drainage over time – reducing the concerns you have about the health of your soil. 

Halting The Presence Of Unsightly Weeds

While providing adequate ventilation for the soil, mulch will prevent the growth of unsightly weeds. Nothing tarnishes the look of a property more than monstrous weeds. Baby weeds and even germinating seeds rely on a large amount of sunlight to grow – the mulch acts as a barrier, stunting the growth. 

Furthermore, an unkempt piece of land that has weeds ravaging every corner will affect the value. So why not maximise your land and make it an aesthetic property, so you benefit when it’s time to sell. Do everything you can to make sure your property looks the best it can be. 

Avoid The Hostility Of Winter Months On Your Plants

Winter can be a brutal period for every living thing on the planet. Your delicate plants and trees are no different. So make sure to take the necessary precautions of adding a layer of mulch to protect the plants that make your land look beautiful. 

Strong winds and torrential rain can rip out or damage fragile plants. We’ve all seen the damages that can occur after a brutal storm. 

A shield of mulch will not only protect but also distribute the water from the rain effectively. In addition, mulch prevents compacting of the soil, allowing for equal absorption of rain – giving nutrients to the plants you wish to thrive. 

Safe Flooring For Children’s Play Areas

Depending on the type of work you’re looking to carry out, mulch is 100% child friendly. Commonly used as the grounds in most playgrounds across New Zealand, this material endorses feet of all kinds to walk on top.

Mulch decreases the growth of weeds that contain prickles or thorns and thus reduce the risk of child injury. Lastly, when children play games, a fall now and again is expected. Laying out a surface that minimises the impact of a fall is the best way to prevent serious injury.
