What is double-shredded hardwood mulch?

Double-shredded hardwood mulch is the most popular mulch type that we install in the Arlington area. It is a mix between tree bark and wood materials, giving it a natural brown color. "Double-shredded" means that it has been run through a grinder two times. We have found that grinding mulch twice is the sweet spot between it being too coarse and too fine.

Our customers love our double-shredded hardwood mulch because it is free of dye, meaning that when it breaks down, the only thing that it is releasing into the soil is extra essential nutrients.

Installing mulch on your landscape beds will give your property a clean, manicured look. You can even choose between different colors to help your favorite plants stand out. However, that's not all it does. Mulch offers protection for your soil and your plants, including insulation and moisture retention. Our team applies the mulch in 3" thickness to assure you get all of the benefits. Below are the many perks that you will receive by adding mulch to your garden beds.

In addition to improving your landscape appearance, mulch will also:

  • Help retain soil moisture. It will prevent water evaporation, keeping your soil and plant roots moist for a longer period of time.
  • Shade seedlings. Your new seeds won't like too much sun exposure. Adding mulch will protect them from getting too hot or drying out.
  • Regulate soil temperature. Mulch serves as the perfect insulator for your soil during seasonal changes.
  • Prevent weeds. Since mulch blocks most sunlight, it creates a natural barrier that prevents weeds from growing.
  • Returns essential nutrients. As the mulch decomposes, it will release essential nutrients back into your soil.

It is important to replenish your mulch as it begins to break down over time. We recommend re-mulching annually to ensure that you are always receiving the most benefits.
