Mulching Services & Assessment
Not sure what type of mulch or the exact quantity you need?
The correct application of mulch is about more than just weed prevention. Good-quality mulching will also help to retain water in the soil by acting as an insulation layer – important for our Perth climate and water resources.
If you aren’t sure what you need and would like advice from an expert, you can book in for a professional Garden Assessment with one of our landscape gardeners.
They will assess your property, take measurements and advise on the type and amount of mulch your garden needs – providing you with a quote for the supply and installation.
They can also provide a Garden Maintenance quote while there if you would like help with the ongoing care of your garden.
Assessments cost $44-$94 depending on your location – which isn’t charged if you choose to go ahead with our quote.
