    Mulch reduces erosion, retains moisture, and suppresses weed growth. There are multiple types available for customers to choose from. When maintaining a garden, owners can mulch trees, flowers, vegetables, and other plants. Some types have nutrients to help the plants grow stronger and quicker. Rock and gravel mulch is available, as well as rubber mulch, mostly used for playgrounds. Conduct some research to learn what type of mulch works best for where it is to be used. Bark, wood chips, cedar, and pine needles are a few types of organic mulches available for landscapes. Stones, rubber, and pebble mulches require less maintenance and typically do not need to be replenished as often as the organic types. Stores often sell different colored mulches, so customers are able to find the one that fits their landscape the best. Customers often find fertilizer and compost located in the same stores that are for sale for gardens. Choosing the right type of topsoil is important to help promote healthy growing for the plants. Garden stores offer tree stump, single grind, and double grind mulch in various sizes and prices that allow customers to make a selection that fits within their budgets. Some garden stores close during the winter months. Customers are able to find out when they open by calling and listening to a recording or by looking online. Other stores are open year-round, but may only carry fertilizer, compost, and mulch in the spring when people start concentrating on their yards after harsh winters. Customers are able to change the type of topsoil each year if they did not like what they did the prior year. Customers who have gathered their own bark or wood can call garden stores to see if they have grinders available for rent so they can turn the material into chips.
