Our gold mulch is a neutral color that does not attract attention away from prized landscape features while assisting you in maintaining your plant’s health. Everglades takes great care in selecting our suppliers because it is important to us to procure our mulch from producers that use environmentally sustainable recycled wood. We only partner with suppliers that do not use wood products that have been treated with harmful chemicals such as arsenic to ensure your plant’s and soil’s health. Our gold mulch is dyed using organic dyes that do not leach harmful chemicals to your landscape during decomposition. Everglades also does not sell freshly cut mulch because fresh commonly contains harmful diseases and fungus. Our mulch is stored in direct sunlight to help eliminate unwanted pathogens.
Having a landscape feature properly covered with mulch comes with practical and aesthetic benefits. Mulch prevents rainfall from affecting your soil texture. Soil, when battered by heavy rainfall, compacts causing a low oxygen environment that will suffocate your plant’s root systems. Fertilizer runoff is also prevented by mulch because when fertilizer is applied it is held by the uneven surface of mulch and is not carried away when water pools on the surface of soil. The gap created by a properly applied layer of mulch also acts as a weed preventative by starving weeds of sunlight after seeds germinate on the soil below. As mulch decomposes the byproduct of this process enhances soil quality by providing natural and consistent nutrients into your landscape feature reducing the need for supplementary fertilization. The layer of mulch also insulates soil from sudden changes in climate stopped excess heat from direct sunlight or cold winds from harming your plant’s root system.

Correctly installed mulch is key to reap the benefits. We recommend a 3 to 4 inch thick layer to be applied. This thickness is required for mulch to be a potent weed control. Generally, the thicker the layer of mulch the less weeds will grow, but too much mulch can be very harmful. Mulch is an effective medium to reduce evaporation, however in artificial landscapes soil may be unable to drain sufficiently creating an overly wet environment that will cause root suffocation, root rot, and promote fungus growth.
