The best kind of mulch for the Chicago area

Hi Everybody!

This great weather means we will all be out doing our gardening this week.

I wanted to make a quick recommendation about mulch;  For the Chicago area the best mulch to use is the free mulch from the tree chipper guys.  Whether it's from the village or the Township or the local tree trimmers, the local wood chip mulch works great for our plants and soil.  

Sometimes people ask me about diseases but we don't need to worry about that.  A healthy tree knows how to take good care of itself and a big part of tree health is the right kind of mulch.

Gas stations are selling cedar and cypress mulch but plants don't like it so we should not use it.  And the colored stuff is an absolute disaster.

Happy gardening and contact Chris to schedule lawn and tree feeding to make your plants happy and healthy.

Take care Everybody!
