We offer mulch and rock for landscaping beds in Hyde Park, Rhinecliff, and the surrounding areas.

Mulch and rock help to prevent soil erosion, insulate soil against extreme temperatures, and aid in stopping weed growth.

Many of our customers live on lots that have inclines and grades, which can create problems for landscaping during storms or snowmelts as the soil erodes away and is exposed to extreme temperatures. A great-looking solution is to call our team to install protective mulch and rock for planting beds and other areas without grass, which also helps to stop weed growth.

We cover a wide service area, which includes Hyde Park, Rhinecliff, Rhinebeck, and surrounding areas.

Red mulch spread around trees and throughout the landscaping at a home in %%targetarea1%, NY.

Mulch & Rocks Provide Many Benefits Beyond Looks, Including Erosion Control, Weed Prevention, & Insulation

Landscape beds are designed to give ornamental plants and bushes a safe place to grow, without the intrusion of weeds and grass. All plants need soil space, but oftentimes soil is stripped of its vitality by water run-off.

That’s where mulch and rocks come in. They provide a neat, clean solution to soil erosion. When installed to the right depth, they provide a natural way to prevent soil from degrading and losing important layers of nutrients. Especially in areas that are sloped or graded, soil can wash away during flash floods. A proper mulch or rock covering allows water to flow over the soil without damage.

Another benefit of mulch and rocks in landscape beds is insulation from extreme temperatures. The wood chips or stones act as a blanket or coat to keep the root systems of plants warm, and can also deflect dangerous heat.

Mulch and rock block additional sunlight from reaching the empty spaces between plants, helping to prevent weeds from germinating. This protection is most effective with the use of a weed barrier.

Mulch Should be Refreshed Annually & Comes in Many Varieties

Mulch should be refreshed once a year for the optimum protection for your plants. Over that time period, some mulch will wash away or decompose, creating the need for another layer.

Our team will keep track and be sure to visit your property to lay down more product. We do not provide pine straw, and we offer organic products if the customer requests.

Here are some of the most popular varieties:

  • Black Hardwood
  • Brown Hardwood
  • Natural Wood Chips
  • Any other mulch available in the area

Rock Ground Cover Should be Refreshed Every Other Year & Provides an Earthy Look

Rock mulch installed in a landscaping bed beside a sidewalk at a residential property.

Rock does not decompose in the same manner as mulch, but it can wash away or become buried in the soil. Our team recommends a refresher once every other year to maximize the benefit and looks rock provides.

Some of the common rock ground cover choices in our area include:

  • River Rock
  • Timberlite
  • Seminole
  • #1, #2, #3 Washed Stone
  • Any other rock available in the area

Mulch and rock installations are best left to professionals who know the proper depth to provide the best look and protection. If you have any additional questions, we would be glad to answer them for you.
