Add Mulch this Summer

Posted on July 3, 2019 at 12:55 PM by Kelly Macejewski

With summer upon us in North Texas, the triple digit heat combined with high humidity can make your plants wilt without a protective layer of mulch to keep their roots protected from the blazing Texas sun! A 2-3 inch layer of mulch on planting beds, under your trees (1 foot away from the trunk, spread to the drip line), on your vegetable garden or in your pots protects plants tender roots from temperature extremes. A layer of mulch also prevents loss of water from the soil creating better growing conditions for your plants and trees. You’ll also save money by needing to water less!

Great uses for mulch:
  • Landscape beds and gardens: Spread a 3-inch layer across the top of the soil to hold moisture, protect roots from harsh temperatures and control weeds.
  • Annuals and perennials: Spread a 3-inch layer across the top of the soil to hold moisture, protect roots from harsh temperatures and control weeds.
  • Shrubs and trees: Apply a 4-inch layer under trees to the outermost branch tips (drip line). Apply mulch 6-12 inches away from the tree trunk.
  • Pathways: Create beautiful pathways with mulch.

Texas Pure Products has 6 different mulch options for you to choose from.
  • Native Hardwood: Local native hardwoods ground twice to 2- inches rich in fines. Mulch size may be adjusted to meet specific requirements. 
  • Aged Hardwood: Receives an additional grind after aging to six months to achieve a naturally darker finished color. 
  • Large Grind: A larger grind mulch used on pasture lands, rustic landscape designs or other low aesthetic applications.
  • Colored Mulch: Red, black and brown are created using a natural iron oxide – an organic approach to providing aesthetically appealing uniform shading for design applications. Colors are professionally applied, coloring each piece of wood in a uniform, consistent manner batch to batch. These organic mulches are safe and non-toxic to pets and children. The red colored mulch is available in the spring and fall only.

Texas Pure Products mulch is the best mulch you can buy as it is a whole tree grind. This means it has the leaves, bark, xylem, cambium and phloem layers of the tree making it a nutrient provider for the soil. Your plants will grow better with a layer of mulch.
