Mulch is woody to semi-woody, difficult to compost organic debris. Mulch is composed of recognizable plant material like branches, pine needles, leaves, wood, etc. Mulch helps to conserve water, protects the soil from heat, aridity, wind, weeds, and erosion. Mulch can be considered a blanket or cover for the soil. Mulch adds nutrients and organic matter to the soil. Apply mulch around trees, shrubs, and other plants to a depth of 3-5 inches. Do not mix or till mulch into the soil because microbes will use up soil nitrogen as they decompose the mulch. Pecan mulch is more decorative than our shredded wood mulch but still retains all the beneficial characteristics of a good mulch. Spread it around trees and shrubs or as a ground cover to add color to your landscape while protecting the soil. It’s color will fade over time with exposure to the sun but simply give it a good raking to bring up the colored pecan shells below. We offer Pecan Mulch in bags, by the cubic yard, or pick-up truck load.
