The Benefits of Vertical Mulching

There are many things you can do for your trees this time of year: trimming, pruning, plenty of water. But one of the best things you can do right now is vertical mulching.

What is Vertical Mulching?

Vertical Mulching is a technique used by arborists and landscapers to alleviate soil compaction within the root zones of trees. It’s performed using an air spade – a non-invasive air-pressurized hose – to remove the compacted soil. Then those spaces are filled with a customized mix of compost and fertilizer.

This will improve the soil structure and nutrients available, leading to a tree that can thrive with vitality. Here are some more benefits of Vertical Mulching:

  • Helps prevent excessive watering
  • Promotes natural aeration during wetter periods
  • Allows for sub-soil water penetration when the weather is extremely dry
