Organic landscaping mulch is an effective alternative to insecticides and chemical weed killers that can poison our food, air and ground water supply. As more and more of these chemicals are banned in Southern Ontario, these mulches are becoming a popular and attractive option for home gardeners and professional landscapers.
Using Landscaping Mulch in Southern Ontario
Landscaping mulch offers many more benefits to your garden than traditional chemicals. Not only does it repel insects and inhibit weed growth just like those dangerous substances, it also maintains moisture in the ground throughout the year. That means less watering in the summertime, and less damage from frost in the winter. Landscaping mulch acts as a natural insulator for your plants, which means less labour for you.
Landscaping mulch is also available in a wide variety of colours and textures to match any garden or home decor. You can even choose a mulch based upon its scent. Some of the best landscaping mulches in areas such as Mississauga and Oakville include cocoa bean, dehydrated coconut, cedar and natural bark such as BC red cedar. These materials can also be organically dyed to almost any colour for added flexibility in your garden design.
At Van Beek’s Garden Supply, we have been supplying Southern Ontario with natural landscaping mulch since 1962. You can stop by our locations in Mississauga and Oakville to see our selection of mulches and bark and choose the best material for your garden project.
