Exactly why do I have to re‐mulch my beds in South Portland on a yearly basis?

Mulch consists of shredded debris from hardwood or pine trees. Because it is biodegradable, the organic influence of the substances breaks up after some time. As it decomposes, the nourishing substance it generates is absorbed by the soil. By having replenishing mulch on many occasions annually, you're making improvements to the style of your beds, and you are enriching the soil naturally too.

How deep should I apply the mulch to my trees in South Portland?

The ideal depth should be 2" to 3". Keep mulch far away from the trunk of the tree and leave a distance of no less than 6" to 8" away. Take care to not ever "volcano" mulch your tree; this will damage it. Mulch placed on the trunk of the tree for lengthy amounts of time may bring about potential girdling problems or possibility of trunk corrosion. In adult trees, this can lead to the decline in the vascular system, ultimately limiting the trees capability to translocate water and nourishing substances throughout the tree correctly.

How long will mulch in South Portland last?

Mulches differ in life expectancy from somewhere around 12 months when it comes to leaf mulch, to around three years when it comes to woodchip.
