What Types of Mulch Can You Use in Your Landscape?


When it comes to purchasing mulch in Georgia, you have many options.  Mulch is used as a soil covering, for an assortment of reasons. It can be used to beautify your landscape and it's perfect for trees, flower beds, plant beds and vegetable gardening.

River Rock or Gravel

Grass clippings are an inexpensive type of mulch to use in your landscape. However, if your lawn is treated with chemicals, it can actually do harm to your plants.


It’s suggested that you allow your grass to dry and to spread out in thin layers. Otherwise, it will begin to let off an unpleasant aroma and rot as it begins to decompose.
