There are many assortments of mulch and chips that offer a variety of options for you to surround your project with. At Kelley Thomas Landscape & Nursery we have mulch in Oak, Cedar, Red, Black, Cypress and Dark Brown Oak. Mulching helps protect plants by holding moisture in the root system, and will help build the soil within the area that is mulched. A three inch layer of mulch will also help in controlling the growth of weeds around the plants. Mulch can also be used for walking paths or dog run areas.
