Your Mulching Options Cumming, GA

Mulch is an excellent solution to preserve both the aesthetics and health of your landscape. Mulch installation in flowerbeds and trees can help the soil retain moisture, control weeds and insulate plant roots. Your mulch can also be the best way to control erosion in yard.

Now that you can appreciate it’s importance, which type of mulch should you spread in your own yard? There are a wide variety of mulch types, including pine straw, wood chips and bark. While it is mostly up to your personal tastes, each type of mulch offers unique advantages and disadvantages.

Pine straw has been a preferred mulch choice in the south for many decades. It is always readily available for Georgia homeowners, and it offers some strong benefits. The needles overlap to form a mat-like ground covering that is also very porous. This allows nourishing moisture to reach the plants that other wood mulch can’t offer. Pine straw also tends to stay in place better than bark or mini-bark mulch, despite hard rains or other conditions. It gives a blended natural tone to your landscape that allows your flower bed colors to stand out. Perhaps the biggest disadvantage of pine straw, however, is that it can fade quickly and break down sooner than other mulch options.

If you want a more versatile mulching option, wood chips may be better for you. There are a wide variety of colors available to accent your landscaping. Wood mulch includes pine, hardwood, cypress, and cedar options with size variations as well.

Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping offers mulch installation and delivery in Cumming. We are happy to consult with you and help you determine which type of mulch suits your personal preferences and landscaping needs best.

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!

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!!
