Organic topsoil mulches are an excellent way to control insects and weeds without resorting to insecticides or other harmful chemicals. Topsoil mulches are also an effective way to promote plant growth.
Using Topsoil Mulches in Southern Ontario
In communities such as Oakville, Mississauga, Milton and Burlington, more and more pesticides and garden chemicals are being banned every year. These chemicals have found their way into our food, our air and even our precious groundwater supply. Professional landscapers and home gardeners have found that the use of organic mulch and yard topsoil mixes are more effective than chemicals in the following ways:
- They protect plants from harsh weather in both winter and summer by preserving moisture levels in the ground.
- They reduce the need for watering, since evaporation is reduced by the mulch cover.
- They add a much more attractive look to your garden and yard, and are available in a wide variety of colors and textures.
- Many of the woods used for mulch naturally repel insects.
