What is Bark Blowing?
If you have been looking to do some additional landscaping or renovations to your yard, chances are you have stumbled across bark blowing. Bark blowing is a highly effective way of applying mulch to your landscape. Rather than dump massive amounts of mulch and wheelbarrow it around, a bark blowing truck has a long hose attached to it that can be used to spray the property landscapes in the necessary areas.
This prevents dirt stains on the sidewalk or driveway and wheelbarrow grooves through the lawn. Most of us are looking for professional landscaping, as it provides a much more aesthetic look to their yard and home. Using the bark spraying method, you get the beautiful look of fresh mulch in your yard (which of course benefits your plants as well), and there is no need for the extra effort of wheelbarrows and shovels. Bark blowers have many advantages that start with the benefits of mulching your yard.
Benefits of Mulching
Aesthetically Beautiful: Everyone agrees that mulching the yard and beds give a complete and attractive look. Having new mulch enhances the beauty of the plants and other landscape in place by adding a fresh color and texture to the landscape. Bark blowers give the added benefit of being able to reach around difficult corners and nooks to ensure a gorgeous, even spread across all areas of the yard where mulch is necessary. Additionally, because there is no dumping involved, the mulch only goes where it is supposed to go, and doesn’t leave any massive dirt stains on the driveway or sidewalk. The consistent distribution and even spray is another plus of bark blowers, ensuring that each area gets covered exactly as it should for the most attractive yard possible.
Extremely Efficient: When it comes to landscaping, bark blowing is the most efficient way to disperse mulch throughout your lawn and yard. Rather than spend hours toiling with a shovel and wheelbarrow, simply call us over to get bark blowers out in your yard. No need to stretch a mulching project out over several days, this should only take a few hours. Because of the lower requirement of man hours, bark blowing is also extremely cost effective. No need to worry about several day laborers slacking off on the project throughout the day and racking up your bill.
Long Term Health of Plants and Trees: Getting the perfect landscape set up is an expensive, and worthwhile process. It is also an investment you want to protect. Mulching provides significant value by adding a safeguard to shield flowers, trees, plants, and soil. By protecting the soil from drying out, soil temperatures stay more even and insulated, protecting your plants and trees. Mulching also helps prevent soil from crusting, which increases water absorption to your plants, keeping them hydrated and healthy through even the hottest summer months. Mulch also acts as a weed deterrent and helps prevent diseases and intruding plants. Lastly, mulch adds much needed nutrients to the soil, which promotes healthy plant growth.
Erosion Control: Because of how well mulch protects the soil, it acts as a phenomenal shield from erosion. Erosion of soil can be a significant cost to your landscaping, because as soil erodes it can open up plants to significant danger. To keep your soil in place, add a fresh layer of mulch consistently every year or every couple of years. This will protect your plants and provide a great barrier to erosion for your soil.
Water Retention: The last main benefit of bark blowing mulch into your landscaping is an added layer of water retention. Watering your landscaping can be expensive, especially if a significant amount of the water is simply running off the soil and never reaches the roots of your plants. Having a layer of mulch on top of the soil helps retain water in the soil, ensuring your plants are healthy and hydrated, and can even end up saving you significant money on your water bill.
No matter the reason you decide, using mulch blowing on your landscape is a significant investment that will help your yard look gorgeous this summer and provide incredible health benefits for your plants.
