Discover the Benefits of Bark Mulch
If you are looking for an organic mulch option, bark mulch is something to consider.
You guessed it! Bark mulch is made out of tree bark that is shredded into fine pieces and used to promote healthy and prosperous gardens. Bark mulch is one of our staple mulch products and in high demand all year long. Bark mulch is generally one of the most inexpensive mulch options. Yet, its small price tag doesn’t stop it from packing a punch in curb appeal. With different dyes and varying sizes to choose from, bark mulch makes a fantastic aesthetic addition to any outdoor space.
There are various benefits to utilizing bark mulch. Here we have outlined just a few!
While often overlooked, your garden is sensitive and can benefit immensely from a protective layer. Bark mulch can protect your garden against harsh weather and heat, as well as treads made by you, your family, or animals. It also prevents your soil from getting compacted, allowing air, water, and nutrients to reach your plants’ root system. What’s more, some types of bark mulch can act as a deterrent against pests, helping ward off ants, rodents, and other undesirable creatures.
The natural properties in bark mulch lock-in moisture and keep the soil hydrated and nutrient-rich. It also wards off weed growth and helps improve the fertility of the earth as it decomposes.
Bark mulches are particularly well-suited to improving your garden’s health. Their organic composition enriches your soil with a range of minerals and nutrients, promoting green foliage and plant growth.
Bark mulch also has an aesthetic value. It keeps your garden looking neat, and well-maintained, and keeps the soil from blowing around.
Bark mulch is an all-around winner when it comes to lawn protection. It costs little. It protects a lot. It looks great. What’s not to love? Drop us a line to discover the full pricing details of the bark mulch we have on offer today.
Choosing the Right Amount of Bark Mulch
Our landscaping experts will take the time to discuss your needs and help you to decide what amount of mulching would best benefit your yard.
Bark mulch is a coarse material, so we usually suggest that it is laid about 3-4 inches thick. It's important to note, however, that too much mulch can suffocate your plants, but if you are adding mulch to an area where nothing grows, you can lay it on as thick as you like. Too often, mulch is incorrectly applied. Too thick a layer of mulch can cause water retention in excess, ultimately resulting in root rot. On the other hand, too thin a mulch layer will fail to provide the necessary weather and pest protection for your plants. Thankfully, our landscapers are seasoned pros—we always find the perfect balance of mulch to maximize your investment and provide ideal plant protection. Our experts will take your landscape needs into consideration before the installation ensues.
Professional Bark Mulch Blowing
The very best way to install bark mulch is to have it blown by an expert. Our team has the tools and experience to ensure that your bark mulch is installed quickly and neatly.
Generally, our bark mulch installations are comprised of four main tasks:
- Removing weeds. We’ll dig out the existing weeds from your garden to make sure nothing can grow through the newly applied mulch layer.
- Fertilizing the soil. For good measure, we’ll apply a generous amount of our premium fertilizer to replenish the nutrients in your soil.
- Spreading the mulch. We’ll carefully mulch around your plants to create a visually-pleasing, uniform barrier of bark mulch.
- Quality control. After laying down the mulch, we’ll double-check that our work meets our impeccably high standards for quality control. We ensure we’ve applied an even, consistent layer with just the right amount of mulch—not too deep, not too shallow.
We will ensure that your gardens are completely covered and equipped with the right amount of product for long-lasting success.
Bark mulch blower services can get messy, but our team will take the utmost precautions to ensure that mulch is installed only where it's needed, and we'll never leave a mess! Before we leave the scene, we’ll check in with you to make sure our work meets or exceeds your expectations because your satisfaction is always our first thought.
By the way, we set ourselves apart as mulch professionals for the flexibility and efficiency of our services. We recognize the value of your time, and for that reason, will schedule your mulching service when it works best for you. Then, you can rest assured knowing we’ll arrive promptly and work quickly to mulch your lawn to perfection in the shortest delay.
Re-Applying Bark Mulch
As bark mulch is an organic type of mulch, over time, it will decompose. Typically, bark much should be re-applied annually or bi-annually to maintain an optimal level of plant protection and keep your lawn looking top-notch.
When you notice your mulch layers thinning, give us a call, and we’ll arrange to replenish your turf. Or, if you prefer, we can also pre-schedule a return visit after the initial installation. Typically, we find that adding mulch is best to do in the spring and fall. In the spring, the added layer of protection will lock in moisture ahead of the summer heat. In the fall, the new mulch braces your plants for the approaching winter cold.

Pacific Lawn Maintenance Mulching Services - What Are The Benefits
Chances are you've seen mulch in Spokane area gardens and landscapes, but if you've ever wondered what its purpose is, read on!
Mulch can come in many different shapes, sizes, and colors. Let the experts at Pacific Lawn Maintenance help guide you in the right direction when it comes to which option would best suit your Spokane lawn and landscape and give you that vibrant "pop" our customers have come to expect.
The main benefit of mulch comes from its ability to preserve soil moisture, but it also helps combat weed growth and improves soil health, as well as serving as a visually appealing addition to your Spokane landscape. Mulch also helps to protect your soil from the elements. All told, mulch is a great way to keep your outdoor space looking great, your soil chocked full of nutrients, and your lawn and landscape healthy.
More than 50% of the water you apply to your landscape can be lost to evaporation. Mulch serves as a way to prevent this, while also being aesthetically pleasing. Mulch comes in many different forms, so there's bound to be one that suits your needs and likes while also adding another beautiful visual element to your Spokane home or office's outdoor area.
Organic or Inorganic? What Is The Difference?
Here at Pacific Lawn Maintenance, we offer many different types of organic mulch including but not limited to, peat moss, wood or bark chips, grass or straw, and pine needles. The main draw of organic mulch is that it helps your Spokane home's outdoor spaces by introducing nutrients into the soil. As the mulch decomposes, nutrients are released, giving the surrounding area extra help in its growth cycle and overall health.
While this means your plants will receive more of a boost than with inorganic mulch, it also requires more upkeep. Organic mulch is a great choice if you're willing to spend a little more time maintaining it, as well as if your soil needs a little extra nutrition. To emphasize the importance of healthy soil, we find it helpful to keep in mind that soil is a key element of how plants gain their nutrition. If your Spokane home's soil is lacking the proper nutrients, then it's hard for your plants to truly flourish.
Inorganic mulch, while lacking the nourishing qualities of organic materials, is a good choice if you're looking for something that is more hands-off, while still being visually pleasing. Inorganic mulch won't break down as quickly (or at all) compared to its organic counterpart, making it a cost-effective alternative to other forms of mulch especially over time. If you go the inorganic route, you could choose from options like volcanic rock, an assortment of stones, as well as fabrics or plastics and even recycled rubbers typically made from used tires!
Leave it to our experts at Pacific Lawn Maintenance in Spokane to assure your plants and shrubs are receiving the correct nutrients they need to be vibrant, thick and healthy with some help in choosing which mulch would be right for your situation.
Boost Curb Appeal and Market Value with Bark Mulch
As we've explored, bark mulch has many practical benefits for increasing the health of your yard. It's important to note that bark mulch also has aesthetic value. If you are tired of a messy garden or patchy lawn, adding mulch can tidy up the area quickly. Home and business owners that are looking to improve the appearance of their exterior property should choose to invest in mulch.
Bark mulch is also a good choice if you are looking to sell your property in the future. Most homebuyers are looking to buy a property that has a beautiful outdoor green space. Mulching can give your yard a striking appearance and allow you to get a leg up on the competition in the area.

Choosing the Best Mulch for Landscaping and Flowerbeds
While your preferences certainly top the list, there are several reasons selecting the best mulch for your landscaping and flowerbeds makes a big difference. Depending on your goals, the soil condition, and the types of plants and insects that inhabit the area, you'll want to select wood that nourishes your greenspace and distinguishes and beautifies the area.
First, let's examine some of the different types of mulch we offer:
Hardwood Bark Mulch
As the most requested type of mulch in our area, hardwood bark mulch is made from different types of hardwood trees and recycled hardwood materials. It is quick to break down and offers the benefits of many nutrients and exceptional drainage to your soil.
It’s also one of the most cost-effective options for bark mulch, making it a great choice if you’re on a budget. Hardwood is best for plants that thrive in alkaline conditions. As the hardwood bark decomposes, it releases alkaline minerals that reduce soil acidity and raise its pH value.
Pine Bark Mulch
Long-lasting pine bark mulch is ideal for landscapes that are not exposed to heavy, moving water conditions. Its natural, deep, earthy tone provides a nice complement to bright-colored gardens. And unlike some types of mulch, pine bark’s color hardly fades, giving you that same pop of color as on day 1.
Pine bark mulch is particularly well-suited to acid-loving plants, such as azaleas, rhododendrons, and holly. What’s more, pine excretes aluminum minerals into your soil, promoting healthy green leaf growth. It keeps the soil moist and temperate and prevents diseases and weeds from spreading within your soil.
Pine mulch also doesn't compact and become matted down as quickly as some other types of mulches like cedar, so if you don't like to rake it back into place that often, this could be the perfect choice for you.
Redwood Bark Mulch
If your goal is to create a stunning landscape with longevity that stops weeds and other unwanted flora from taking root in your gardens and landscape features, redwood bark march is an optimal selection. With insect-repelling capabilities built right into the wood naturally, you won't have to worry about infestations.
Redwood mulch is renowned for its visual appeal that creates a natural burst of color in and around your yard. What’s more, the natural red color can help reflect more light onto your plants, encouraging photosynthesis and increasing their growth rate.
Cedar Bark Mulch
Prized for its ability to keep weeds out, cedar bulk mulch is well-known for preventing weeds from growing and seeding. It also keeps insects like ants, termites, and cockroaches at bay. This long-lasting solution decomposes more slowly than other types of wood, meaning you won't have to replace it as often.
Cedar is a long-lasting mulch that won’t deteriorate even years later. Its neutral, earthy color makes it a versatile choice perfect for just about any garden. It also has that pleasant, cedary smell we all know and love!
Gorilla Hair Mulch
Made from redwood and cedar bark, this finely shredded garden enhancer works well to keep out weeds, keep your soil moist, and is an environmentally responsible option. It is also well known for staying in place during harsh weather conditions and is perfect for covering ground with uneven spots. Due to its fibrous composition, gorilla hair mulch is great at holding soil, preventing it from eroding. And since it's made from two types of bark, gorilla hair mulch boasts a multi-colored, variegated appearance, which gives a sense of depth and texture that many garden owners love.
Since gorilla hair mulch incorporates cedar bark, it’s also an exceptional pest deterrent, warding off ants, cockroaches, moths, rodents, and more.
As this bark can pose a choking hazard to curious dogs and other livestock animals, we don't recommend using it in places where pets and other animals are kept.
When your goal is to keep mulch in place and give your soil a boost of nutrients, shredded bark is the way to go. This interlocking type of bark is ideal for hillsides, as the interlocking edges of the shredded pieces make it more resistant to movement and washouts due to rain.
Landscape Wood Chips: A Variety of Colors to Suit Your Taste
Now that we've talked about the different characteristics of each type of landscape wood chip, let's get down to business discussing color.
We carry a wide range of natural bark mulches in a variety of colors. Shop an extensive collection featuring different colors, sizes, and styles to suit your individual needs. Whether you want sleek and unique, rustic red, or natural brown, we have you covered.
Our bark mulches include:
Black Bark Chips
These hardwood chips are dyed black using natural, non-toxic carbon that has been deemed safe for home and commercial use. A distinctly modern choice, black bark is a bold and stylish option that’s sure to set your landscape apart. If you have a home that is clad in grays and whites, black bark chips are the ideal color choice.
Red Bark Chips
Choose red bark chips when you want your landscape to match warm hues like rust, gold, and terra cotta colors. Red bark is an incredibly popular choice as it brings a rich contrast to most landscapes, which tend to be dominated by grassy greens and flowery blues and pinks.
Brown Bark Wood Chips
Brown bark chips pair nicely with red bricks and are also a versatile way to highlight different areas of your landscape, contrasting with lighter flower colors to make them pop. Brown chips also have the advantage of being all natural, adding depth and color to a garden without looking overly artificial.
