Fall Mulching Fast Growing Privacy Evergreen Thuja Green Giant arborvitae & Murray Cypress

You do not necessarily have to mulch your Green Giant or American Pillar Arborvitae for them to develop to their full potential, but they may grow at a faster rate if you mulch them.


Benefit of mulching:


  • Locks in moisture and slows down water evaporation
  • Keep weeds away from competing with the trees for nutrition/water
  • Keeps the lawnmower and weed eater away from the trees
  • Provides organic material in future years
  • Provides protection against excessive cold should unseasonable cold spell hit
  • Opportunity to hide weed barrier or drip line underneath
  • Absorbs heat faster than grass, a benefit for cool days
  • “Keep Out” messaging for people who may assume your trees accidentally lined up


Overall, mulching is an inexpensive insurance to make sure your expensive investment will do great.
