Lakewood Ranch Ground Covers
We offer installation of different types of rocks and mulch after installation or replenish bare areas during maintenance.
Mulch improves water absorption by reducing soil compaction, which allows rainwater to penetrate the soil more easily.
By acting as a buffer, mulch prevents erosion and the loss of rich topsoil and nutrients during heavy rains.
Mulch also helps prevent soil splashing against the base or foundation of a house, which can cause damage over time.
Mulch reduces soil moisture evaporation by up to 40%, which helps plants survive periods of drought.
By reducing soil temperatures by 10-15 degrees, mulch provides a more favorable environment for plant growth and reduces the risk of deterioration and decay.
Rocks can add texture, depth, and visual interest to a landscape. They can be used to create natural-looking borders, pathways, or water features.
Unlike plants, rocks do not require regular watering, pruning, or fertilizing. This makes them a low-maintenance option for landscaping.
Rocks are long-lasting and can withstand harsh weather conditions, making them a good choice for areas that experience extreme temperatures or heavy rain.
Rocks can help prevent soil erosion by holding the soil in place and reducing the impact of water runoff.
Placing rocks around plants can help prevent weeds from growing by blocking sunlight and creating an inhospitable environment for weed seeds.
Rocks can help conserve water by reducing the amount of water needed to maintain a landscape. They can also be used to create rainwater collection systems.
