Mulching is an often overlooked but critical part of landscaping. Among other things, mulch is essential for retaining soil moisture as well as suppressing weed growth. Crushed stone is swiftly gaining in popularity as an alternative to the more vulnerable and short-lived organic mulches. White marble is one of more popular landscaping stones and is typically used as a decorative element in flower beds and similar areas with high visibility. Everglades proudly supplies superior quality marble sourced from local suppliers, which not only contributes to the local economy and allows us to keep our prices competitive, but it is also more environmentally sustainable.
White marble adds sophisticated element to a landscape’s design and aesthetic. Marble is known for its durability and longevity. Marble is created through a process of extreme pressure and heat it molecular structure is resilient to wear. This is why marble is a popular kitchen counter and flooring material and can stand up to constant impact against sharp objects and friction of high traffic does not affect the surface of this strong material. Due to its hardness, marble can of withstand incredible weight making marble the best choice for areas that are expected to have pedestrians and vehicles travel over. Unlike stones that surface level defects that will trap dirt and could even stain, marble’s density and glass like surface allows it to be cleaned in order to restore its natural shine. You can be assured that your investment in marble will remain pristine until you decide it is time for a new look.
Installing marble to a landscape feature as an inorganic mulch is not only aesthetic attractive but also aids the welfare of your plants. Everglades recommends that our customers apply a layer of three to five inches of marble to optimize the practical benefits of this product. Marble is fantastic at reducing water loss due to evaporation due to its glossy surface reflecting sunlight instead of absorbing the heat keeping your topsoil cool even in hot summer days. Also when weed seeds find land in your landscape and germinate the weed will not survive because it can not reach sunlight. This protective layer of marble will also prevent soil loss due to wind and rain by protecting the topsoil from heavy rainstorms.
Marble, unlike organic mulch products will not decompose nor add nutrients into your soil letting you control what is in your soil. Harmful bugs like termites are not able to spread through granite because there is nothing in that layer that could sustain them. Too thick of a layer of marble could cause your too much moisture in your soil causing disease and pathogens to thrive and potentially harm your plants.
