Mulch: Your Secret to a Landscape Facelift Cumming, GA
landscaped front yard

Does your landscape need a facelift? One of the simplest and quickest ways to improve your lawn is by adding a fresh layer of mulch. Not only does mulch boost your curb appeal, but it also provides benefits to your lawn health. Be careful – there are right and wrong ways to mulch!

What Can Mulch Give to Your Landscape?

Visual Appeal: The contrast of rich-colored mulch that is strategically placed throughout your landscape can add real value to its aesthetic appeal. Mulch can highlight your flower beds and provide attractive definition within your landscape design.

New Life to Your Plants and Flowers: Your plants and flowers love fresh mulch. This groundcover helps your beds retain proper amounts of moisture and keeps the soil temperature at an ideal level. Mulch can also help reduce weed growth and lawn pests!

The Basic Rules of Mulching

Keep in mind that mulch comes in a wide range of varieties. The most common mulch used in the metro Atlanta area are pine straw, bark mulch and wood chips. Talk to a professional landscaper if you aren’t sure what type is best for your yard.

It can also be hard to determine how much mulch to purchase. It’s a hassle to have to go back to the nursery and buy more, but buying too much can be a frustrating waste of money. In general, one yard of mulch is enough to cover 300 square feet an inch deep. If you have a large area that needs to be covered, consider buying in bulk and having it delivered. Hire lawn care experts to spread it if you want it done precisely.

Last but certainly not least, if you are laying your own mulch, don’t overdo it. In other words, more is not necessary better. In fact, applying too much mulch can do more harm than good, causing plants to smother and root systems to become too shallow.

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

Ashley W.

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
