Mulch is a great long term ground cover solution. Mulch aids in water retention of soil and as it breaks down it adds nutrients to the soil. Mulch comes from trees that have been passed through a chipping machine and then typically dyed to make it uniform color. Mulch comes in 4 common colors: red, black, brown, and natural. Spreading mulch to the right thickness and areas of your yard can be difficult, so let Aurora Lawn Care take care of it for you.
Pine Straw (or Needles) are an extremely environmentally friendly source of ground cover. Because of the naturally falling needles, it is a renewable product. When harvesting the needles, the pine trees are not cut down or destroyed. One of the advantages of pine straw is that it adheres well to slopes. The interlocking needles keep the needles together, so they don’t float away in heavy rains, which aids in erosion control. It is insect and termite resistant, as well as pet and user friendly. It is very light and simple to use. Contact a professional landscape service, such as Aurora Lawn Care, to discuss your options and what is best for your lawn.
