Cost Effective Outdoor Water Savings

Want to save money watering your outdoor garden? Protective layers of bark and mulch can help keep your soil moist, reducing evaporation by 10 to 25 percent. Mulching is an extremely cost effective means for outdoor water savings, and Friedman’s Home Improvement is offering the Every Day Low Price of $3.88 (your choice) for a 2 CU. FT. of Decorative Bark.

The benefits of bark and mulching extend beyond outdoor water savings, too. Mulches eliminate the need to mow around trees and shrubs, providing a protective barrier that prevents damage from lawn mowers and weed trimmers. Organic barks and mulches decompose over time, releasing small amounts of nutrients into the soil. Bark and mulch will also prevent the growth of most weeds, yet still allow for normal water and oxygen exchange within the soil.

Depending on the area where you want to spread decorative bark or mulch, 2 cubic feet should cover 50 square feet with a ½ inch layer of bark. Take care not to make the bark/mulch layer too deep. Excessive bark or mulch can result in a situation where roots are growing in the mulch and not in the soil. Plus, overly mulched plants can be damaged when herbicides and fertilizers are applied, especially if the area is poorly drained.

If you have questions about our decorative bark, mulch, or other ways to make cost effective outdoor water savings, visit any of the Friedman’s Home Improvement stores in Santa Rosa, Sonoma, or Ukiah for the lowest price and local advice.
