Mulch Installation Service

Protect your garden beds and give them a uniform appearance

Improve Your Curb Appeal By Installing High-Quality Bark Mulch

We offer mulch delivery and installation services

Mulch installation can provide several benefits for your garden beds such as giving it a nice uniform appearance, it can also help to reduce the amount of weeds, it can help retain moisture, and it helps insulate and protect your plants root systems during cold weather.  Adding mulch to your garden beds is a key part of maintaining a healthy looking landscape.

There are several different types of mulch available at local landscape supply yards that we can use on your property for different aesthetic and functional properties.  Typically we use hardwood bark mulch in a variety of grades including bark nuggets, shredded mulch, and bark fines.  It's available in different colors as well including black, brown, or red.

Superb Concepts is a landscaping contractor based out of Boardman, Ohio and serving Mahoning County and the surrounding area. We offer delivery and spreading of several different types of bark mulch for garden beds of all sizes.  We can deliver and spread mulch throughout your garden beds, flower beds and landscape features for both residential and commercial clients.

What Are The Benefits Of Installing Bark Mulch In Your Garden Or Landscape Beds?

Here are three clear benefits of installing bark mulch in garden or landscape beds:

Moisture Retention: Bark mulch helps retain moisture in the soil, which can benefit the plants in your garden. According to a study by the University of Rhode Island, bark mulch can reduce soil moisture loss by up to 25%, which can help plants grow better and require less watering. This can be especially beneficial in areas with hot and dry climates or during periods of drought or when water restrictions might be in place.

Weed Suppression: Another benefit of bark mulch is that it can help suppress weed growth in your garden or landscape beds. When applied in a thick enough layer bark mulch can reduce weed growth by up to 90% for extended periods of time. This is because the mulch creates a physical barrier that prevents weed seeds from germinating and growing.

Soil Improvement: Bark mulch can also improve the quality of your soil over time. As the mulch breaks down, it adds organic matter to the soil, which can improve soil structure, and nutrient content.  These can both benefit plant growth and health in the long term.

Preparing Your Garden And Landscape Beds For Mulch Installation

It's not really a good idea to just start spreading out mulch without some preparation to the garden and landscape beds.

For a proper, professional level installation you'll want to properly prepare the areas where the mulch will be installed.  This can include removing any weeds in the beds, removal of any brush, undergrowth, or organic debris in the beds.

Shrubs and bushes and any surrounding tree cover should be pruned and trimmed back.  This will prevent organic debris from falling into your newly spread mulch.

We are happy to add garden and landscape bed preparation and clean up services into your estimate.  It makes an amazing difference in how good the mulch will look after installation.

Edging Your Garden Beds Before Mulch Installation

Edging service is offered for all mulch jobs, and while this service is optional it is highly recommended.  Edging a garden bed is done using a special machine or in many cases we just do it by hand.  Edging the garden beds will create a more established edge to separate your mulched beds from other landscaped areas and provides a distinct line of separation between your landscaping features.  This also helps keep the mulch in the bed and not strewn about your lawn or hardscaping.  A defined edge can also keep the grass from growing into the garden beds as well.

Lastly, edging the beds will give your garden beds a nice, clean, and uniform look.

Mulch Delivery & Installation Pricing

Minimum Mulch Delivery/Spreading = 5 Yards.  Mulch is sold and delivered by the yard.  1 yard of mulch spread about an 1″ thick should cover approximately 324 square feet.  We can arrive to your location with up to 6-10 yards of mulch in one of our dumping trailers and orders larger than that will need to be delivered via a dump truck or in multiple trips.

*Each trip for mulch or other materials comes with an individual delivery charge.

Our mulching estimates include delivery costs, spreading (approx 1 man hr per yard), edging of your garden beds, and a clean up of the delivery area.  You'll be really happy with the new, uniform look your garden beds will have!

Do You Have Questions About Bark Mulch Installation?

A depth of 2 to 4 inches of bark mulch is generally recommended for landscape beds, based on the recommendations of various horticulturists from leading universities.  Any less and it won't last very long, any more and it could prevent your plants from getting water and oxygen to their roots.

Bark mulch typically lasts for one to two years, depending on the climate, soil type, and other factors. It is generally recommended to replace the mulch every one to two years or as needed.

It is not necessary to remove old bark mulch before adding new mulch. However, it is recommended to rake or agitate the old mulch to loosen it up and mix it with the soil to promote it's decomposition.

Bark mulch is generally safe for pets and children, but it is recommended to keep them away from the mulched area until it is settled and dry. Some types of bark mulch may contain chemicals or dyes, so we often recommend the use of natural, untreated mulch if this is a concern.

Bark mulch can that is applied properly in a layer 2 to 4 inches thick can provide a really good barrier against weeds.  It can stop seeds from germinating by blocking their sunshine and access to water.  However, bark mulch will not prevent 100% of weeds from coming through and will eventually need to be replaced.

Bark mulch is best installed during the early spring where it has a chance to do the most good for your landscape beds by preventing weed growth early in the season.

Landscape fabric is not necessary and can be harmful for mulch installation.  For mulch installations we use a product called “Snapshot”.  This is a pre-emergent herbicide that blocks the growth of weeds in mulch. This product is safe around plants.

With mulch being made of organic materials, it will break down and cause weeds to germinate, it will also easily trap organic debris such as small leaves and cause more weeds to grow.

Essentially, with a weed fabric or landscape cloth under mulch, you're stopping weeds underneath the matting, but you're not stopping them from growing on top.  Hence why a pre-emergent is generally a better, more effective option.

Another benefit of mulch (without fabric) is the ability to easily plant annuals and bulbs and landscape fabric complicates this.

We do not offer “delivery only” services on mulch.  We are a landscaping company and not a product supplier.  If you require mulch delivered for you to install on your own, we suggest contacting your nearest landscape supply company.

If you’d like to schedule an estimate to deliver and install mulch in your garden beds we’d be happy to meet with you.  Please call 234-600-7675 or fill out our online form and we’ll get right back to you.

I highly recommend superb concepts for stamped patios, retaining walls, and landscaping. They installed a very beautiful stamped patio including a compass accent with a firepit. It turned out so beautiful. They also removed mulch, shrubs, etc from one side of my yard and planted seed. It turned out great and now it's easier to maintain. The retaining wall and river rock they installed also look great!! Very satisfied with their work. They are very professional!!

Thank you Tyler, I really appreciate you.

Very impressed with this company from start to finish! I called for a mulch quote and Tyler was so nice over the phone. He provided an estimate within minutes (I contacted a few other companies for quotes and they didn’t even return my call or said they would come out and give an estimate but never showed up) so Superb Landscape stood out immediately. I loved how they utilized text messaging so I could easily communicate with them. The crew showed up right on time to work. I have a few beds packed full of perennials and Superb mulched the beds beautifully, making sure to get around each plant. They took great care around my flowers and shrubs. They cleaned up at the end of the job and made sure everything was perfect. Highly recommended!! Thanks for making our yard look great.

We had an amazing experience with Tyler and this company. We had a tree fall from our yard into our neighbors yard. We got a quote from another company that said they could not be out for 4 more days. Mind you this tree was blocking the neighbors driveway. I got in touch with this company and they had it done the next day. Plus they charged me 100 dollars less than the other company quoted us for. Tyler was super friendly and professional. I would recommend him for any type of tree removal or lawn care.
