Mulch is organic material applied as a top dressing to garden beds and tree rings and slopes.
Mulch provides many benefits for your property including:
- Replenishing minerals to the soil by providing the proper balance of nutrients.
- Maintaining moisture to foster plant health.
- Lowering the temperature of the soil during hot summer months and reducing the need to water as frequently.
- Deterring animals from digging near your plants.
- Slowing the growth of weeds and preventing soil erosion.
Landscape Bed Preparation Pittsburgh
A nice crisp professional hand edge dresses up your landscape. Razor sharp edges separate the mulch from the turf, adding clarity and providing a nice finished look.
Dream Greener cuts a deep defined edge into the soil, and then removes turf, refining it with a spade or edger. The loosened turf, weeds and debris are removed and your beds are cleaned. Finally we hone in and perfect the crisp boundary. This first step done prior to laying mulch creates the perfect finished look.

Mulch Selection Pittsburgh
We take pride in both the bed preparation and installation of our premium mulch. There are many varieties of mulch and the selection will depend on your aesthetic preference, the type of trees, plants, landscaping, and the specific conditions of your property.
Compost mulch is made of organic material and it is great for use in flower and garden beds. Bark mulch is tree bark shredded to different consistencies that is functional and long lasting. Often bark mulch is described by the number of times it is “ground” in the processing, such as double ground or triple ground. The more grinding that is done, the finer the mulch becomes. traditional mulching
Another consideration is color. Mulch is available in many colors beyond its natural brown. For a bold statement dyed mulch in cherry brown, chocolate and black is available. Dream Greener’s professionals enjoy collaborating with you to set the tone of your landscape scene with mulch.
Mulch Application and Blowing Service
Initially, mulch should be laid at a depth of 2-4 inches over clean, weed-free soil. Covering over existing weeds will not control them. When we mulch around trees we pull the mulch away from the tree and we are mindful not to pile it up around the trees, (volcano mulching) which is harmful because it causes excessive moisture buildup which is ideal for pests and disease.
