Landscaping Can Drive Home Values in Las Vegas
The look of your Landscaping may be the first and perhaps the most lasting impression people have of your home and property. Landscaping plays an essential role in enhancing its beauty and increasing the value. Fortunately, homeowners can turn their own landscapes into works of art at an affordable price. Decorative landscaping stones and mulches are not only an excellent way to beautify and accent garden beds, ponds, driveways and walkways, they also provide natural benefits to the soil and plants. These benefits include controlling and reducing erosion, retaining moisture, controlling weeds and insulating the soil.
Here are a few tips on choosing and applying mulch to your Landscaping:
Choose mulch that is long lasting and not easily washed away.
Pick mulch that has a loose structure to let water pass through quickly.
Apply mulch in late spring. This helps reduce soil temperature and save water.
Apply fine mulches one to two inches deep. Coarse or fluffy mulches should be put on three to four inches deep.
Apply mulch evenly and level it with a rake or your hands.
Wet thoroughly after applying mulch.
Pull mulch a few inches away from plant stems and tree trunks.
