Mulch Madness

By: Jeremy Kranowitz

Did you know that KIB used over 2,000 yards of mulch last year with our projects? To be exact it was 2,119 yards which comes out to about 210 trucks full! 

That may seem like a lot however this is also very important to our work here at Keep Indianapolis Beautiful. Mulch has lots of great benefits to the thousands of trees that we plant each year. As we finally crack into Spring it will be once again time to remulch our trees and we hope you are doing the same thing. To help make sure you are properly caring for your trees upon planting, here is an informative link from This Old House with a demonstration video on “How To Properly Mulch Around A Tree” by Roger Cook, a landscape contractor, and Matt Foti, Certified Arborist. How To Properly Mulch Around A Tree by This Old House “In this video, This Old House landscape contractor Roger Cook and certified arborist Matt Foti save a tree from mulch suffocation.” – This Old House Happy Mulching!
