Everglades brown mulch is the best choice for landscapes that want to preserve a naturalistic aesthetic while improving the growing conditions for plants. We take pride in our partnerships with suppliers. We are careful to select suppliers who use ethically sourced wood from recycled products and trimmings. Soil quality is vital to a landscapes’ longevity therefore we make sure our suppliers’ wood material has not been treated with chemicals like arsenic that can damage plants.

Freshly cut mulch is a common vehicle for pathogens and fungus. To avoid contaminating your landscape we do not sell freshly cut mulch and we store it in concrete bins in direct sunlight.
Utilizing mulch in your landscape not only looks visually appealing but also enhances the environment for your plants. Maintaining proper soil aeration is a challenge in artificial landscape features especially those that are built drain resistant foundation. As rain crashes onto unprotected soil and saturates it with water, soil begins to compact. Compacted soil prevents oxygen from reaching the roots of your plants essentially suffocating your plants. Mulch acts as a protective barrier against heavy rainfall protecting the texture of your soil. The uneven surface of mulch also acts a preventative against fertilizer runoff and soil erosion during heavy rains and winds. When our organic mulch is broken down by microflora nutrients useful for plants is deposited into the soil enriching plants. Mulch also stops unsightly weeds from growing by stopping seeds that have germinated in soil from reaching sunlight. Blocking sunlight also helps soil retain moisture by reducing water loss via evaporation. Mulch is also an insulator and wind breaker against climate extremes preventing damage to sensitive root systems.
