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.
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 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 three 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.
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.

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.
