As the temperatures rise and the days grow longer, homeowners across Georgia are gearing up for the summer months ahead. While it may seem like the ideal time to kick back and relax, savvy gardeners know that May is not too late to mulch their landscaping. In fact, applying mulch before the hot Georgia summer can provide numerous benefits for your plants and soil, ensuring a healthy and vibrant landscape all season long. At Green Landscape Supply, we understand the importance of mulching and offer a wide selection of high-quality mulch products available for delivery in the greater Atlanta, GA, area.

Why Mulch in May?

Mulching is a critical aspect of maintaining a healthy and thriving landscape, regardless of the time of year. However, applying mulch in May offers several distinct advantages, particularly as temperatures begin to rise and the soil begins to dry out:

  • Moisture Retention: One of the primary benefits of mulching is its ability to retain moisture in the soil. During the hot Georgia summer, water evaporates quickly from the soil surface, leaving plants vulnerable to drought stress. By applying mulch in May, you can help conserve moisture in the soil, reducing the need for frequent watering and ensuring your plants stay hydrated and healthy.
  • Weed Suppression: Mulch acts as a natural barrier, preventing weed seeds from germinating and competing with your plants for water, nutrients, and sunlight. Applying mulch in May can help suppress weed growth throughout the summer months, reducing the time and effort required for weeding and allowing your plants to thrive without competition from unwanted vegetation.
  • Temperature Regulation: Mulch serves as insulation for the soil, helping to regulate temperature fluctuations and protect plant roots from extreme heat. In the scorching Georgia summer, mulch can keep the soil cooler during the day and warmer at night, creating a more hospitable environment for your plants to grow and thrive.
  • Soil Health: As mulch breaks down over time, it adds organic matter to the soil, enriching it with essential nutrients and improving soil structure. Applying mulch in May can help replenish nutrients depleted by winter weather and promote healthy soil biology, leading to stronger, more resilient plants.

At Green Landscape Supply, we take pride in offering high-quality mulch products that are perfect for enhancing your landscape this summer.

  • Jon B.

    Wanted to add top dressing to my lawn and stopped by to get some basic facts before starting. The team was so helpful to answer my many questions and made me feel comfortable to move forward with project. Stopped by a few weeks later with a u-haul and was all loaded up and ready to go within 15 minutes. Very helpful and inviting team. I might have them deliver next time, seems it's much easier and it can be dropped off on my driveway in those huge plastic bags - wife likes that Idea, and keeps me from unloading the truck on my own

    We undertook a major landscaping project spanning 2018-2019. It includes stabilizing a foundation wall, construction of retaining walls, redirecting drainage, raised flowerbeds, and completely redoing the lawn. It requires multiple truckloads of stone, sand, fill dirt and topsoil. We saved a few dollars, but more importantly, the quality of the products ordered were unequaled. It was the best experience in getting exactly what and how much we needed that we had in the 30Y we've been here.

  • Ben J.

    Holy Cow! Super fast and friendly service having some gravel delivered. Person taking order on phone and driver very friendly. Feel I got a very fair price on material as well. Will be back.

  • Joshua J.

    When every other landscaping nursery was out of sod these guys had it. Felt very much like a family business. Not a lot frills here, but none are needed for a landscaping business. For my next project I might just have to drive past the other 3 nurseries to get here.

  • Tessa H.

    The only place I will go from now on! John was very kind and so helpful! Even though my job was really small, I was treated with so much respect and personal care that I will not being going anywhere else for my landscape needs in the future. They have a massive selection and their customer service is outstanding.
