Mulch Installation

We make mulching easy. We provide you with recommendations an mulches that best suit your needs and an example book so you can pick the color and variety of your choice. We get you superior rates on mulching material through our contractor’s accounts with local distributors, and our team makes sure the whole process goes smoothly from purchase to delivery direct to your property to the installation and clean up afterwards. Just say the word and your flower beds will be transformed with the mulch of your choice! Falconbridge Property Services is your most comprehensive solution.

Mulch Maintenance

The tendency is to leave mulch alone until the flower beds are almost bare and then do a complete installation again…but a far better solution is to do a “mulch renewal” every 6mo. or so to insure optimal thickness and function of your mulch. This also saves you money in the long run. We include mulch renewal in all our yearly comprehensive property service contracts.

Benefits of Mulch

All natural mulches share the same beneficial properties:
• Helps soil retain moisture.
• Prevents weed growth.
• Visually pleasing
• Prevents soil erosion.
• Adds organic nutrients to soil as it decomposes over time.
