Which is Better For You?

There are many benefits to using mulch in your landscaping. Mulch gives your landscape a polished look, controls weeds, retains moisture, prevents soil erosion, and controls heat. Here at Express Landscape Products, your Utah landscaping company, we provide both wood and rubber mulch. When choosing which type of mulch to put in your yard, there are many pros to both.

Wood Mulch

Wood mulch is made from organic materials including various types of trees, barks, and wood chips. Because it is organic, wood mulch decomposes over time and becomes part of the soil, at which point it must be replaced. Even with its more frequent replacement, wood mulch offers significant benefits to your landscape design goals, such as:

  • Improves soil structure
  • Inexpensive
  • Readily available
  • Neat and attractive

Rubber Mulch

Rubber mulch is made from inorganic materials, usually tires that have been recycled and shredded into rubber chips. While rubber mulch cannot decompose, it thus has a much longer life span and thus requires less replacement. Our rubber mulch:

  • Lasts for 10-20 years
  • Resists bugs
  • Color lasts
  • Is toxin-free
  • Does not rot or compress
